Luis Gutiérrez from Wine Advocate (R. Parker): 93 pnt
"The 2020 A Pedreira comes from different small vineyards and is the basic wine here. There is a change in this vintage: they increased the percentage of wine that matured in barrel, trying to age most of the wine for a few months, rotating between stainless steel and barrel, as they want the polished texture and acidity of the wine oxygenated in barrel. The wine has 13% alcohol, didn't go through malolactic and has kept very good freshness and balance. It's clean and tasty, pure and focused. Very good. Some 20,000 bottles produced."
Drink Date: 2022 - 2027
For Manuel Moldes from Fulcro, 2018 was a warm year with lowish acidity, which he compares more with the style of 2016, quite different from the opinion of most of the other producers. 2019 was a cooler vintage with wines with more structure and also more acidity. He sees 2019 as a very complete year, with very good acidity. It all depends on where your vineyards are, and the family vineyards are in places that are quite extreme, on slopes, so warmer in warmer years, drier in drier years. In 2019, the plants were lacking water, and the vineyards with more water in the soil behaved better. The whites do not go through malolactic, so they aim for lower malic acid. It's a year of volume and acidity.
As for how 2017 has evolved, it's a vintage he liked, in a fresher style than 2015, which he sees evolving at a very slow pace. I tasted a couple of 2017 reds, and they are great. The wines from warmish vintages tend to gain freshness in bottle (if that's possible). But 2018 is definitely a great vintage for reds. Total production is around 30,000 bottles.
