Tasting Notes

The NV Reliquia Palo Cortado, as the rest of the reliquias, is so old and off all scales that they don't bother with the official age qualifications. It has a dark amber color with green reflections, an extremely complex nose, ever-changing, you could be smelling it for hours (they call it a meditation wine?), noble woods, bitter orange, crushed shells and hazelnuts, The very concentrated palate is extremely dry, slightly bitter and salty. In fact, it's so saline it makes you salivate. Not as extreme as other reliquias, it's probably the most drinkable of them all, and represents the absolute epitome of Palo Cortado. Drink 2013-2024.
