Decanter Wine Legend -May 2015.
Ygay wines are renown for their elegance and longevity. The agran reserva Especial is only produced in outstanding vintages.
After harvest this wine was fermented for 13 days in American oak vats where the wine remained for a further 8 months. It was then transferred to new oak vats where it stayed for five years. The wine was then transferred to older barrels where it matured for an incredible 32 years more before being bottled in 1964. It was given more bottle ageing before. Coming onto the market in 1973. It's longevity is partly explained by its high acidity (ph 2.96).
