The 2021 El Palomar always has a more classical malolactic sensation with a faint lactic feeling to it. It has notes of yellow fruit, and it's quite expressive, with very tasty flavors and a spicy twist. It spent a long time with lees in oak, without racking or added sulfur, which also gives it a certain creaminess. I like this very much; it really shows the cold year. 2,200 bottles and 150 magnums were produced. It was bottled in July 2022. Drink 2023-2032.
