"The red 2017 Simeta is a single-vineyard Arcos from a vineyard planted back in 1970. The variety tends to produce large grapes that have thick skins and ripen quite late. It's a Mediterranean red that fermented with 60% full clusters and finished fermenting in amphora, where it underwent malolactic. The press wine was put into a 225-liter oak barrel where it matured for ten months before it was blended with the wine from the tinaja and then bottled. This is floral and perfumed, expressive and high-pitched, and it makes me think of a fresh Garnacha. It has an elegant profile and is a little reductive in character, and it has a super fine palate with very fine, chalky tannins. Plain great, elegant Mediterranean red. 1,150 bottles were filled in July 2018."
