95 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "[$70 list] 2019 is a more concentrated and riper year, but the 2019 Terra Vermella felt fresher and more vibrant in the palate than the 2018 I tasted next to it, despite 2018 being a cooler year and both wines having similar alcohol (12%). The wine has the classical slightly closed and faintly reductive personality with notes of toasted sesame seeds, gunpowder, smoke and flint, a little à la Coche-Dury/Leflaive or some German Rieslings, with some diesel-like, mineral hints that are always present in this wine, even if some vintages develop it sooner than others and in some is stronger than in others. It's tasty, complex and has a long, dry finish. Parellada is informally known as the 9/9 variety, as it can have 9% alcohol and nine grams of acidity. But through viticulture, they manage to achieve 12% alcohol and lower acidity (6.5), and the wine comes through as very complex. 2,805 bottles produced. Drink: 2023-2029. (Sep 2022)"
