28/09/2022 New on catalog

Just like there are perfect dishes for every season of the year, wines also have their moment. So now, as the temperatures drop and the wind picks up, mornings are cool and evenings are damp, it's time to makes some changes and enjoy some of our cozy new arrivals.

8 comforting wines for the beginning of autumn

Giovanni Rosso Barolo


After leaving behind a scorching summer where we have needed light and refreshing wines, what we really want now is to enjoy the power, finesse and elegance of a good Barolo. With this wine, the legendary Giovanni Rosso not only offers us a taste of pure Piedmont (Italy), but also perfectly captures the character of a unique terroir. Pure Nebbiolo silkiness.

Pétalos del Bierzo


More than just something new, this flagship wine from Descendientes de J. Palacios is a statement of intent for the start of the new season. A single-variety Mencía that, thanks to its fresh minerality and vibrant youth, reminds us that long aging and high concentrations are not necessary for enjoying the warmth of a glass of wine. A true master of the D.O. Bierzo (Castilla y León).

Abel Mendoza 5V


If there is one wine that perfectly showcases the attributes of the white varieties in the D.O.Ca. Rioja, it is this coupage from winemaker Abel Mendoza. Located in the fascinating municipality of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (La Rioja), he selects the best grapes from small, very old vineyards planted with Viura, Malvasía, Garnacha Blanca and other white varieties to offer us a creamy, complex and nuanced white wine.

Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz


Although Australia doesn’t have as many years’ experience as Europe, they are not lagging behind when it comes to making wines with body and soul. At Torbreck, a legendary winery in the Barossa Valley, their Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz is high up on the best wine lists. A red made from Australia’s most popular grape variety, Shiraz (Syrah) that stands out for its succulence and incredible value for money.

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé


If we’re talking about whites for the autumn, a Chardonnay from Burgundy (France) fits the bill. This single-variety from the Mâconnais AOC Viré-Clessé sub-region has everything you need to enjoy the body, freshness and elegance present in these barrel-aged white wines. And if they are also made following biodynamic principles, the result is a lively delight.

Les Cousins L'Inconscient


Les Cousins Marc & Adrià are cousins (as the name suggests), the nephew and son of Josep Lluís Pérez, one of the pioneers of the Priorat Revolution, who, after training in the family winery (Mas Martinet) and in other wineries abroad, joined forces and their passions to set up their own project. This wine is a blend of red varieties that, after aging in 7,000-litre French oak vats, is presented as an introduction to one of the most acclaimed denominations of the Iberian Peninsula. Juiciness and minerality at an incredible price.

Gramona III Lustros Reserva Brut Nature


Corpinnat is a collective brand of quality sparkling wines in the Penedès region, and Gramona is one of the pioneering wineries in this movement that is full of originality and quality. This is clear to see in every one of their wines made from the 150 hectares of their own vineyards. One example is their Gramona III Lustros Reserva Brut Nature, a lustrous sparkling wine made from a blend of Xarel·lo and Macabeo that remains in the bottle for about 80 months before disgorging. A real gem in the heart of the Penedès region.

El Maestro Sierra Oloroso 15 Años


Although a fortified wine is a good companion all year round, when it starts to cool down, this is the sort of wine that comforts the body and soul. El Maestro Sierra Oloroso 15 Años is a powerful, potent and robust oloroso made through an oxidative aging process in contact with the air for 15 years using the soleras and criaderas system. A pure work of art from Jerez.

These are the latest wines that we think are the best for this time of the year. Rich, tasty and enveloping wines that invite you cozy up with a glass or two. However, they’re not the only ones. At Decántalo, you won’t be short of choice with our extensive range...
