Hermanos Lurton Cuesta de Oro 2017 is a creamy white wine that is full and long. The toasted notes of the barrel give the nose elegance and add volume and structure to the wine in a leaner vintage.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.
Pretty pale yellow color with golden reflections. Clean and bright, with nice, fine tears. Nose
Clean, complex aroma that is rich in nuances. Intense floral, mineral, smoked and spiced notes appear, as well as nuances of dried fruit, following aromas of yellow stone fruits (apricot, peach), white fruits (pear, green apple) and nuances of tropical fruits. Taste
Tasty, with a fresh, creamy texture and abundant volume. Good acidity, with very well integrated toasted notes. The long finish eventually gives way to an aftertaste rich in fruity sensations.
