Clos Lentiscus Malvasía Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine produced in the Garraf Natural Park. Manuel Avinyo and his brother are responsible to renovating the estate, cultivating the vineyards using biodynamic viticulture, situated on slopes exposed to the sea. The pair have taken the native Malvasía de Sitges grape and turned it into a sparkling version. This sparkling wine is would be perfect to serve to guests, or even just to enjoy at any time during the day to refresh yourself.

The new 2015 vintage of Dido Blanc is the second wine on our list. This wine is produced by Sara Pérez and Rene Barbier in the Montsant, two people who have been key figures in viticulture in the region and who were brought up in the industry on their parent’s wineries in the Priorat. Now it is clear that their project seeks to respect the surrounding environment, nature and the land. They have worked hard to ensure that the vineyards and winery integrate into the landscapes, and that their wines express the character of the land. Dido Blanc is an example of this working philosophy, where its Mediterranean character reflects the local climate, yet its fresh profile shows the time of production. A long awaited arrival, with the previous vintage sold out months ago.

Ramon Parera and Jordi Arnan founded Pardas in 1996 on the Can Comas estate with the aim of producing authentic wines in a manner than was respectful to the environment. If you ever visit the Can Comas estate you will see that everything changes, time stopes and nature welcomes you. You will pass the river Riudebillas, enter the valley and see terraces full of vineyards planted at the beginning. The winery which had been in disuse since the civil war has been adapted perfectly to their needs. This Pardas Xarel.lo 2012 is a balanced wine, exciting like everything to come from the Can Comas estate. The good grapes and the know-how at the winery results in a complex, light and long wine.

Then we have Forcallà de Antonia 2014, a more personal creation by Rafael Cambra. This wine is produced with a minority grape variety from Valencia which transmits a certain freshness. It has taken a few years for the winery to find its feet, but in the last few years it has managed to transform grapes into wines with a personality where freshness and fruitiness play a vital part.

We then move over to the island of Tenerife, more specifically the DO Valle de Orotava, where the use of native varieties, volcanic soil compositions, braided vines and cultivation techniques are all key in the local winemaking. Suertes del Marques El Lance 2014 is a red wine produced applying all of these features by Jonatán García and his oenologist Roberto Santana in his last year advising the winery. This wine is a treat for the senses, and transports you to the landscape of the island, with a minerality of the volcanic soils and the trade winds of the ocean.

Our final wine on our list is the new vintage of Mauro 2014tene, a safe bet for any self-respecting table. Mariano García, former winemaker of one of the most legendary wineries in Spain, Vega Sicilia, along with his children produces in Tudela de Duero. A peculiarity of the wine comes from the Syrah variety, planted by Mariano to complement the Tinta de Toro grape. A wine of modern cutting structure and ideal for people who are stuck in the middle as a lighter wine with body.
