From a blend of the oldest and most characterful parcels in Nieva, the Ossian vineyards are blessed with a seam of sandy soils that have protected the vines from the dreaded Phylloxera louse, enabling an enormous amount of old vine material to build up and survive for over a hundred years. Coming from very old vines this is a stunning wine. Great volume and richness. the wine is subtly honeyed with waxed lemon and stone fruits, layered with toasted spices and subtle notes of almond and salted nuts which continue onto the palate with a moreish saline quality. There are very slight oxidative notes which only add to the complexity and make this superb if you are a fan of the style.
