Spanish Stars Case of Six
We have dedicated 4 drops in our shop to Spain! We love Spain – it has classic producers making wine in the traditional style we know and love; as well as avant-garde producers, who are taking traditional grape varieties and creating a modern style wine or re-cultivating old, abandoned wine varieties and bringing them back to life. For this Spanish case we have focused on those avant-garde producers, creating wines in new and exciting styles.
Sin Palabras, Albarino, 2019, Galicia,13.5% (2 Bottles)
A wonderfully fresh a delightful albarino, lovely primary fruit, tropical undertones, with a perfect backbone of seaspray acidity. A pleasure. Perfect to drink with or without food, it will, however, be a fantastic accompaniment to seafood.
Lindes de Remelluri, Vinedos de Labastida, 2016, Rioja . 14% (2 bottles)
An opulent drop from a very highly regarded producer. A core bursting with both rich and stewed fruits, accompanied by generous but caring use of oak. A wine to be enjoyed with grilled meats and spices. A true powerhouse.
Guimaro Mencía 2018, Ribeira Sacra, 13% (2 bottles)
The wines of Bodega Guimaro are made by Pedro Rodríguez Peréz whose family have been instrumental in renovating the abandoned terraces of mencía that are so steep they rival the Mosel for sheer precariousness. Made from 100% organic (not certified) Mencía grapes, grown on very old vines, Peréz keeps yields naturally low, giving way to concentrated, juicy fruit. Smooth tannins and succulent fruit – pair this with charcuterie or vegetable dishes.
