New wines for June 2016

Coming into June it finally feels as if summer is coming. Little by little the temperaturas are rising, and we find ourselves searching for wines that are a little fresher, a little lighter. Our new collection of wines for June are offering just that.

The first wine on are list is one that year are year seems to gain freshness and complexity, the Mas Candi Qx Cuatre Xarel.lo 2014. This wine has changed its mentality over the past few years. Before, the barrels were the protagonist of the wines character but now, in an effort to preserve the character offered by the Xarel.lo grape, other containers such as amphorae are used.

The next wine on our list is the Zárate 2015, the new vintage of wine offered by Eulogio Pomares and family. With every vintage, the work carried out on the vineyard can be felt is reflected in the character of the wine. This year given the slightly warmer climate, the wine has gained acidity and concentration. This is a pure Albariño from the Valle de Salnés.

The third wine on our list is Viña Meín 2015, a classic wine from the Ribeiro area, which was reinvented 2 years ago with the input of the acclaimed Command G, a team of great winemakers in  Gredos and the surrounding area. This is a white wine that will satisfy what you are looking for, and will refresh you.

Abel Mendoza is also present in our new collection of wines with the Abel Mendoza Viura 2015 from La Rioja. This white wine is has a slightly complex nature due to its 4 month ageing in oak barrels, and is made using grapes that have been well treated, cultivated and frown throughout the year by Abel and his wife Maite.

Now time for a bit of Rosé, although this rosé has the soul of a red wine and is the Quinta Clarisa 2014 by Didier Belondrade from the V.T Tierra de Castilla. This is a single variety rosé wine, made exclusively with the Tempranillo grape variety.

Bernabe Navarro is the craftsman behind our next wine, La Amistad 2014, a light red wine that almost became a rosé. This wine is produced in Alicante with the native Rojal grape variety, and is aged for 4 months in vats. It is a red wine, but one that will leave you refreshed.

Then there is the Bodegas Marañones with the new vintage of Marañones 2014. This wine is made exclusively with the Grenache grape, a variety native to the Vinos de Madrid region. The winery are experts in working with this variety, producing lights wines without large extractions, making wines from single plots.

4 Kilos 2014 is the new vintage of cuvee from the winery of the same name. This red wine is made exclusively with the Callet grape, a variety native to the Island of Mallorca, that year after year Francesc Grimalt and Sergi Caballero work hard on to understand and interpret it. If you want to get to know the great wine potential offered by the island, then this is a wine simply not to be missed.

Next up from the Montsant we have the new vintage of Venus “La Universal” 2012, a project by Sara Perez and René Barbier. Venus is a wine with the most character by the winery, combining the character offered by the organic treatment of the Grenache, Carignan and Syrah vines, with the complexity offered by the 20 months of ageing.

Finally from Jerez from the Equipo Navazos we have Bota nº61 Amontillado. This wine has remained in La Guita winery, and has gone from Manzanilla Pasada to an Old Amontillado, and is estimated to have an average of 22 years. A wine with a Sanluqueño character that will delight those who enjoy concentrated and slightly saline wines.
