The 2013 Altar de Otazu comes from a cooler year, and the wine has lower alcohol (14%) and more freshness. It fermented at low temperature for a week and matured in barrel for 18 months, including malolactic. 2013 was a very challenging year, with plenty of rain and a very cold summer, and they had to discard many grapes. They produced fewer bottles, and the results show the conditions of the year—more herbal and perhaps evolving faster than the 2010, but it's lively and peppery and has complexity. 5,646 bottles were filled in June 2015.
