**Price Includes Delivery**
Buy yourself a ticket to Spain! We figured you may be missing out on a summer holiday right now, so we put together a memorable case of some of our bestselling wines from Spain. It will not replace the white sand between your toes, but there are white wines that will put a smile on your face and reds that are Spanish sunshine in a glass. So, get out the Tapas and get on board! We are going to take you from Rioja to Rias Baixas.
1x Fillaboa 2018/19 - Rías Baixas DO
From a single vineyard site, on the hillside overlooking the Té river, where the mist rolls in from Portugal as the morning sun hits the cold river. The vines are trained using the Pergola method, to protect the grapes from mildew. Hand-harvested then fermented in stainless steel tanks using indigenous yeasts. With scents of apricot and honey on the nose before the mouth-watering acidity and citrus flavours take over the palate. Well balanced with a beautiful richness. This is why Fillaboa is one of Spain’s iconic wines.
1x José Pariente 2019 - Rueda DO
A limited release from Victoria Pariente, an experiment that was planted 30 years ago. A fantastic alternative to the traditional Ruedian Verdejo. Stainless steel fermentation with indigenous yeasts and extended time on lees results in an elegant Sauvignon with subtle aromas of lemongrass and green pepper. Very, very long finish.
1x Carles Andreu Cava Cuvée Brut NV - Conca de Barbera (Organic Methods)
This is a cava to rival champagnes. It is made using the Champagne method of secondary fermentation in the bottle. Aged in bottle for 18 months, developing richness and complexity and all those brioche aromas we associate with its more expensive cousin. The Andreu family farm organically and work with their neighbours to turn the Conca de Barbera area fully organic.
1x Finca Mas d’en Gil ‘Bellmunt’ 2016 - Priorat DOCQ (Organic Certified, Biodynamic Methods, Vegan)
From one of the highest points in Priorat, with a Mediterranean breeze that helps regulate temperature and clear disease. The unusual broken up slate lends an elegance to this wine. ‘Vi de Villa’ or Village Wine is hand-harvested and fermented with wild yeast and aged for ten months in oak — 225 litre, 1,500 litre and 3,000 litre. A minimum of 6 months in bottle. This wine is never released until ready—flavours of crushed red berries on the palate followed by a long finish with refreshing minerality.
1x Bodegas Elias Mora ‘Semicrianza’ 2018 - Toro DO (Vegan)
Tinta de Toro
From Toro, Victoria Benavidez vineyards are 800 metres above sea level, all bush vines and all 100% Tinta de Toro. It is a robust grape, which must be handled with care. Hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel with selected yeast, before ageing for six months in American oak under Victoria’s always keen eye. She continually tests to ensure that only the best barrels will go forward for bottling. Aromas of cassis, violets and dark fruit evolve to vanilla and cedarwood.
1x Guerinda ‘El Máximo’ 2017 - Navarra DO (Organic Methods)
Garnatxa, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
From the Abete sisters, named for their father “El Máximo” who renovated the winery and vineyards. Located about 600 metres up the mountain and surrounded by forest and only accessible by 4x4. Hand-picked, fermented with natural yeast using stainless steel and concrete, then aged in French and American oak for 12 months and 6 months in bottle before release. A juicy medium-bodied and textured wine. Aromatic, sweet fruit flavours and undertones of cinnamon and white pepper.
