New Wines for August 2016

This month, we are presenting some new wines: new vintages from well-known wineries, and new wines from smaller and traditional wineries that we have included in our catalogue.

Enjoy the summer, the people, the countryside and, of course, the WINE!


Raventós i Blanc Gran Reserva de la Finca 2013A great vintage from this wine cellar which, year upon year, grows in intensity and emotion thanks to the work they carry out in the vineyard and in their biodynamic practices. Marine soils from Conca del Río Anoia bottled as bubbles, you can’t ask for any more than that.

Callejuela Manzanilla finaGreat work by Francisco Blanco Romero in Sanlúcar de Barrameda which is reflected in this young Manzanilla. A good marriage between the vineyard and ageing. Fruity, fresh and dry.

Navazos-Niepoort 2014One of the key wines from the last few years in the Jerez area. A favourable display of the vineyard, the Palomino Fino grape and the traditional production method in the area, unfortified and aged under a cap of ‘flor’ yeast. Unmissable!

La Salada L’Ermot: Un vino blanco elaborado con Macabeu de la zona del Penedès. Obra de Toni Carbo, su proyecto más personal y puro donde intenta plasmar el paisaje sin ningún tipo de maquillaje. No puede faltar en tu nevera de refrescos.

La Salada L’ErmotA white wine made with Macabeu from the Penedès area. Toni Carbo’s work, this is his most personal and purest project in which he tries to capture the landscape without any embellishment. It cannot be left out of your wine cooler.

A PedreiraDiscovered in Emoción dos Viños, a great Rias Baixas produced by Manuel Moldes, by Bodegas Fulcro. It is made with the single variety of Albariño from the Salnés valley from their own A Pedreira estate. Pure, dry and salty.

Pícaro del Águila Clarete 2013An old-fashioned rosé, a claret like those in the past. Produced mainly with the Tempranillo and Albillo varieties, it is macerated and fermented simultaneously. Jorge Monzón is the author of this wine, having returned to his roots in Aguilera with a great interest in sharing classic wines with us from Ribera del Duero.

Uvas Nómadas 2015A crowdfunding project organised by the Malaparte winery has finally seen the light. This year they have produced Mencía de Villamarin in Bierzo. A unique opportunity to try this wine.

Sicus Sumoll 2015Eduard Pie produces wines with native varieties in Bonastre, Baix Penedès. This Sumoll comes from the Caseta estate and is grown in an eco-friendly way. To retain the freshness, the deposits chosen to make the wine are kept in amphoras. A superb Mediterranean red wine with perfect balance.

Herrigoia 2015: Moving away from the classics couldn’t be done in any other way than with a fantastic carbonic maceration, a traditional production method from the La Rioja Alavesa area. It is made in cement tanks with the Tempranillo grape and a little Viura and Malvasía. Essential at a summer barbecue and best served at a cool temperature. Itxaso and Gorka are in charge of raising the value of the vineyard that their family planted as El Mozo Wines. Don’t forget to check out their other wines to see how things are shifting in La Rioja nowadays.

Antídoto 2014We were very excited to include Bertrand Sourdais in our catalogue. He was the creator of Dominio de Atauta, but some time ago, he decided to rethink his path and produce wine in the Ribera de Duero area, more specifically in the Sorianas mountains. He was looking for a little more freshness and old vines. This Antídoto cures all ills, it’s from great Tempranillo vines and is aged for 12 months in used barrels, creating the perfect recipe.
