Vega Medien, Cava Selección Especial Seco, Catalonia NV
Cava pale yellow, bright and friendly bubble. In the nose displays intense aromas of ripe white fruit with subtle citrus notes. On the palate it is long, sweet and complex, inviting a second drink.
Viña Almirante, Albarino Pionero Mundi, Rias Baixas, Galicia 2015
This wine is refreshing, full of juicy peach, orange peel, and soft florals. Invitingly aromatic, it lingers in the palate. Creamy, waxy notes on the nose alongside citrus freshness and fresh cut herbs. Very silky palate lined with lemon curd and citron peel, showing a tart freshness
Bodegas Carchelo, 'Carchelo C', Jumilla, Murcia 2016
Intense and complex, full of fruity notes, highlighting aromas of both black and red berries that add to the spicy notes acquired during the 6 months of rest in barrel, with hints of cedar and roasting. Surprising, for its smoothness and balance, as for the presence of subtleties of aroma in the mouth. Harmonic, fresh, with a huge and delicate persistence.
Cellar Pinol, Ludovicus Tinto, Terra Alta Catalonia, 2016
An amazing wine made from 100% Grenache organically farmed and aged four months in French and American cooperage. Exuberant black cherry/kirsch liqueur notes, medium to full body, terrific purity and exuberance. This is a delicious bistro-style fruit bomb that is pure and succulent. Talk about hedonism! Drink it over the next several years.
CVNE, Crianza, La Rioja 2014
Bright cherry color with some violet nuances. In the nose, red berries aromas remain over the oaky and balsamic notes from its ageing in wood. It shows an elegance in the mouth, yet very lively, with some spice back notes and a very balanced acidity.
Bodegas Izadi, Rioja Reserva 2012
Youthful and bright, this wine’s plump cherry fruit fills its austere structure, with plenty of oak tannins to hold it in place. Unusually fresh for the vintage, relatively light, raspy and firm, this offers a hint of sweetness in the fruit to make the structure more accommodating.
