New Wines at Decántalo, May 2016!

We are now entering into the month of May, the month of flowers that brings us into the months of summer, and as ever, brings us a new list of wines at Decántalo!

Prepare yourself as this month has come packed with new products. New vintages of classic wines, as well as new wines that we are sure you are going to love.

We will begin with La Comedia, a wine from the Celler Comunica winery, a new winery that we has taken our fancy here at Decántalo. Celler Comunica is a winery from the D.O Montsant that produces wines following the principles of organic agriculture, with the aim of producing wines that reflect the character of the terroir from where they come from.

Next we have El Rey del Glam, a Garnacha wine, made with grapes from the Sierra de Gredos planted at an 1,000 altitude by Alfredo Maestro under the VT Castilla León classification. The winery carries out all of its agriculture manually, along with a careful vinification process, both giving way to this fresh and attractive wine.

Then we find an old classic, Solanera. This wine is from the D.O Yecla, whose previous vintage flew of the shelves, so we are sure this vintage won`t be too far behind. With 92 Parker Points, and around €11 makes this a very attractive wine for those who follow the American critic.

Now we have Tarima Hill. The new vintage of this classic Monastrell is from the D.O. Alicante, this wine is produced by the Volver winery at the hands of Jorge Ordoñez. This wine is made with grapes taken from low-yield vines that are over 40 years old. This is a potent wine with a strong body.

Following Rebels de Batea (Blanco y Tinto) and El Senat del Montsant, from the D.O. Empordà we have Somiadors, the 4th wine in the 7 wine collection 7 Magníficos. 7 Magnificos is a collection of wines from different zones which looks to express the character of each terroir with each vintage. This wine is a blend of Cariñena and Garnacha, a true representation of the region in the north of Catalonia.

From the D.O Empordà, we go to Castilla-León, where we will find our next wine. Abadía Retuerta Selección Especial. This classic wine is aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels by the Abadía Retuerta winery. The 2012 vintage of this wine scored an impressive 93 parker points, and we are sure that this will too be one of the wines of the year.

Our next wine is the new vintage of Cims de Porrera Vi de Vila, a wine produced by the Cims de Porrera winery. Vi de Vila (Vino de Pueblo in Catalán), is a classification granted by the D.O. Priorat for wines for have been produced and come from a single town, Porrera in this case, and therefore are able to express and respect the character of the local terroir.

Finca Torrea is a wine that comes from the most renowned Spanish wine region, La Rioja, and is produced by perhaps one of the most well-known wineries in the world, Marqués de Riscal. This wine spends 18 months in French oak barrels, with the intention of refining the wine, but without masking its marked fruity character, a trademark in modern Riojan wines.

Back to the D.O Priorat, but this time with a spectacular white, Nelín, from the Clos Mogador winery. This wine is a blend of 4 different grape varieties, Viognier, Garnacha Blanca, Macabeo, Escanyavella, all of which are cultivated organically. This wine is aged for 16 months in large wood and concrete tanks. This is an unusual, authentic and expressive white wine.

And to close our list we have a really great wine for you that will really make an impression. 200 Monges Reserva. This is a wine from La Rioja that is half way between a classic crianza from this region, and a slightly more modern version in search for a fruiter profile. Smooth, delicate, but well bodied and with personality. A marvel.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Cheers!
