Criticism

Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's wine critic, writes:

"There is a new 1998 Palo Cortado from Tradición, a wine that, although it feels young, is already over 20 years old, as the Solera wines do not age as quickly as the static ones (non-Solera or non- dynamic) wines that age faster than the Soleras and feel older. 1998 is also the year in which Tradición was born and that is why they decided to bottle this "young" wine. It has an intense orange color, with notes of lacquer and peach, noble woods and white spices, even a touch of iodine, complex and elegant, intense and sharp, with great complexity and nuance, multi-layered, with a lush palate and aromas that linger in the mouth long after swallowing. This is an intense and striking Palo Cortado that combines some young and old characteristics that make it very drinkable without compromising its complexity. 330 bottles were bottled in December 2018 and labeled as 1/18.

I tasted four different bottlings of their fino, which felt very different, which I wasn't expecting. Every November and May, 3,000 bottles are filled with a fino from a very old solera, whose wine is on average ten to 12 years old. I also tried some new bottlings, including a Palo Cortado from 1998!"
