David Seijas, the man behind this amazing creation, was the Head Sommelier at three-Michelin-starred restaurant El Bulli, in Spain. I reviewed El Bulli for the Guardian back in 2002 and David looked after my table on that occasion. I went back a second time seven years later and David, having left El Bulli only to return, was again my sommelier. These were two of the most amazing gastro experiences of my life and he was the conductor! A legend in Spain, since El Bulli closed its doors in 2011, David has broadened his repertoire into winemaking. Ikigall is made from 85% Xarel-lo, 10% Malvasia and 5% Muscat of Alexandria and it is an astonishing wine. Brittle and challenging, fleshy and generous on the mid-palate and then, at once, chalky and lip-smacking - you will adore this wine.
