Robert Parker (94/100): "The 2018 Karrakripán is a new white, and it's the freshest and sharpest of the whites and has less impact from the oak. This wine was rejected by the appellation of origin (it's a bit cloudy), and it has an unusual profile, but the Ministry decided that it had to be accepted (!?). It was produced with mostly Viura (from vines averaging 50 years of age), but there are also other varieties, such as Malvasía Riojana and Palomino, that have been organically farmed since 2015 and certified since 2018. It fermented in an 1,800-liter oak foudre and matured in third use 500-liter oak barrels for 20 months, shorter than the majority of Sampedro's whites. It has a nose of pollen, yellow flowers and chamomile, spicy and complex. The palate has very fine tannins and a chalky sensation, nicely textured, balanced, dry and long. 2,200 bottles were filled in October 2020, a few days before I tasted it. I find it to be harmonious—and phenomenal."
