Vega Sicilia Unico Gran Reserva 2013

Unico Gran Reserva 2013 är helt unik då det är en speciell årgång där tre årgångar sätts ihop. En sann hyllning till traditionen, detta vin berättar på ett autentiskt sätt kulten av spansk vinhistoria samtidigt som det förenar det bästa av tre fantastiska årgångar. Emblematisk och utomordentligt komplex, den kombinerar underbart år och dygder vilket ger den dess unika och absolut oefterhärmliga stil, Vega Sicilia-stilen.

Luis Gutierrez – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: ”I had already tasted the 2013 Único from magnum in a vertical tasting of all the magnums ever produced and was quite impressed by it (and the still unreleased 2014 that should be available in 2024). 2013 saw a rainy harvest, and the wine is subtle, elegant and fresh, complex, silky and with precision. The wine matured in 225-liter barrels in an initial phase and then in 22,000-liter oak vats until it was bottled in June 2019. This year, the final blend was 97% Tinto Fino and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon with a little less alcohol, 14%, and a pH of 3.78 and 5.2 grams of acidity, fresh and balanced, more elegant and subtler. Único often transcends the character of the vintage and doesn’t follow the norm in the region, and the 2013 is a good example of that. It was a very rainy and complicated vintage; they harvested quite quickly to avoid botrytis, and while other people waited for concentration, they did not, and their approach clearly paid back. It’s aromatic and floral, less dense than the 2012, subtler, more expressive and more elegant. It’s clean and fresh, tasty, with very fine tannins. It’s a big surprise for the vintage and one of the finest Únicos in the last few years. 76,476 bottles, 3,658 magnums and some larger formats produced, the shortest crop since 2009.” 97 Points

James Suckling: ”This has a polished and complex nose of poached plums, dark cherries, tea leaves, graphite, milk chocolate and a touch of caramel. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm yet creamy tannins. Caressing, seductive and ripe, but with underlying freshness. 97% tempranillo and 3% cabernet sauvignon. Tasted from magnum. The normal bottle will be released 2023 and the magnum in 2025. Try after 2023.” 98 Points
