New wines for the month of August in Decántalo

Although August is already in full swing, at Decántalo we stand by the old adage: better late than never. That is why we introduce to you the new wines of the month, all of which may be found on our website.

Don’t miss out on this wide selection of new vintages. You’re going to love them!


Flor de Vetus 2012: The new, 2012 vintage of Flor de Vetus has been released with the best possible timing: it has just been awarded 92 Parker points from none other than the guru of The Wine Advocate himself during his tasting of Eric Solomon’s wines in the United States. A wine to look out for!

Finca Constancia 2011: We welcome this coupage from the VT Castilla. An elegant wine that is powerful and flavourful — a great value. Its 91 Parker points for only €5.95 are a perfect demonstration of this.

El Esquilón 2012: A single estate wine from the Canary Islands produced by the Suertes del Marqués winery. A coupage of Listán and Tintilla from old vines planted in volcanic soil. Fresh, mineral and deep, with a touch of salt.

La Cana 2013: A new vintage of this interesting Albariño from the Rías Baixas, aged on its own lees for five months. A clean and varietal nose. Unctuous and fresh on the palate. What a wonderful summer is ahead of us!

Rebels de Batea Negre 2013: An intense and vibrant red garnacha from 7 Magnífics, a new product of the Grupo Torres. It represents a return to the authenticity, originality and fidelity at the roots of the Catalan wine tradition. At the moment, only two of seven wines have been released, but we can’t wait to see what else this winery has in store for us.


Pim Pam Poom 2013: Let’s stay on the topic of Catalunya to take a look at some Priorats as summer wines (believe it or not!). Pim Pam Poom 2013 is a fun, fresh and flavourful single varietal Garnacha that is best enjoyed (why not?) a little bit cooler than usual.

Finca La Emperatriz Viura 2013: Finca La Emperatriz Viura 2013 is finally here. This white wine from La Rioja is intense and creamy but has good acidity and freshness. It is a great ambassador of the Rioja Viura, and deserves more attention than it currently gets.

Fino La Ina: This August, we could not forget our beloved finos and manzanillas (a type of wine similar to sherry) from Jerez. This time, let’s focus on Lustau Fino La Ina. This classic won best dry fortified wine under £15 at the Decanter World Wine Awards. A guarantee of quality.

5 Rosas 2013: Let’s focus on the Bierzo now, to take a look at Losada Vinos de Finca, a rosé from Mencía. 5 Rosas 2013 has elevated and fresh, red fruit aromas that perfectly blend with milky and spiced notes. On the palate, it is flavourful, fresh and full bodied. A rosé to keep an eye on.

Tridente 2011: Our final recommendation of the month comes from Zamora. We are talking about the new vintage of Tridente by Bodegas Tritón (Orowines) from the VT Castilla. A very good wine: flavourful and intense, a great value.
