Dear Wine Lover,
This is the best and most famous wine from Spain and the latest vintage has just been released. Unico 2005 from Vega Sicilia. The last Unico release on the market, the 2005 vintage, is now ready to be delivered an the vintage is really impressive. Even more impressive, we kept our margin on lowest levels and can offer you a very competitive price, lowest in Switzerland at CHF 255.00+Vat compared to an average price on the Swiss market of CH 293.00
which make this Unico 2005 the most attractive vintage, of this Iconic wine, in the market.
Unico 2005 has been held back for a couple of extra years and arrives after the releases of the 2007 and 2008 vintages of last year. Tasting from cask in 2012, by Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, Unico 2005 was rated with an encouraging 95 points, stating: The 2005 looks set to be a wonderful Unico. However earlier this year Unico 2005 was retasted and they upgraded the rating, available now at 96 points by Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Would you be interested in adding some cases to your cellar of this great Unico vintage?

Robert Parkers Wine Advocate 96: Neal Martin had already tasted the 2005 Único in 2012, before I joined The Wine Advocate, but then they released 2007 and 2008 before and the 2005 has been kept until now, as they thought the vintage required some more time in bottle. It's mostly Tempranillo with some 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, fermented with indigenous yeasts in oak vats and aged for almost six years in 225-liter French and American oak barrels and 20,000-liter oak vats. The extra time in bottle has helped the wine to develop its bouquet, and it feels very aromatic and open, with the classical Vega Sicilia perfume of yesteryear, earthy, leafy and spicy, even if they wine was kept because of its power. It's still powerful, but at the same time it's elegant and has a polished mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins. 93,545 bottles, 2,391 magnums, 146 double magnums and six imperials produced. It was bottled in June 2011. Next year they will release the 2006, and the following vintage to be released in 2019, will be 2009. Further than that they don't know, as the only newer vintage in bottle today is 2010 and they are about to bottle 2011 now.
