90 View from the Cellar The 2020 Blanca de Guarda from Bodegas Arrocal is made entirely Albillo Mayor, with the wine aged for one year in French oak barrels prior to bottling. It offers up a lovely nose of lemon, pear, beeswax, salty soil tones, a touch of honeysuckle and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, and still fairly primary in personality, with a lovely core of fruit, sound framing acids and lovely length and grip on the well-balanced finish. This is already quite tasty but seems like even more complexity will emerge with a year or two’s worth of bottle age. 2023- 2030.
John Gilman - Issue #103 January/February 2023.
