Enjoy some brand new selections from Spain that we poured over our big Festival of the Vine weekend. Try them now and bring them home to spice up your autumn meals and weekend relaxing!
Pazo Cilleiro, Albariño, Rias Baixas, Spain, 2015 - $16.99
Fresh melon and stone-fruit aromas are laced with a mineral streak. Smooth, with good body weight. Flavors of orange, lemon and passion fruit finish long and stony. Bright, salty and clean.Tasty, balanced and done just right. A classic Albariño! "From the owners of Bodegas Muriel, in Rioja, this is the second vintage of Pazo Cilleiro. Made from a selection of vines in Salnés, it feels fresh and alive, moving throughout the mouth with graceful acidity (the wine did not undergo malolactic) and a fine leesiness that tap dances on the tongue. Its citrus flavors are layered with herbal notes that predominate in the end, leaving a fresh and crisp memory." 92 Pts. Wine & Spirits
Bodegas Shaya, Verdejo, Rueda, Spain, 2014 - $11.99
Looking for a new fall white wine? This crowd pleaser displays a nose of toasty baking spices, nutmeg, spring flowers, marzipan, and pit fruits. A bit rich and complex on the palate, this vibrant effort could evolve for 1-2 years but is drinking well now. Seafood as stuffed mussels, oysters, shrimps, and scallops, fish, vegetables, rice dishes and pasta.
Sierra Cantabria, Rosé, Jorge Ordóñez, Rioja, Spain, 2015 - $11.99
A beautiful autumn classic style Rioja rosé wine made from Viura, Garnacha, and Tempranillo to authentically represent the area tradition. Salmon colored with notes of red berries, pomegranate, and strawberry. Refreshing and lively acidity. The ultimate representation of fine wine from the oldest clones of indigenous Spanish grape varieties.
Real Compañia, Garnacha, Spain, 2015 - $11.99
Very elegant and complex, with an aromatic intensity that includes a wide variety of fruit (cherries, strawberries and raspberries are most prominent). The nose follows through to the palate, which is redolent of fresh fruit, soft and elegant, with a long, fruity finish. Ideally served at room temperature with paella and other rice casserole dishes, pastas, red and white meats. It is ideal for Spanish-style “tapas” and appetizers.
Bodegas Bilbainas, Viña Zaco, Tempranillo, Rioja, Spain, 2015 - $13.99
Aromatic with vibrant and expressive red fruit flavors and subtle oak. Full expression of Tempranillo, Rioja's classic varietal. Intense color, picota cherry with violet hues. Black fruit and licorice on the nose with floral nuances of violets and jasmine. Hints of vanilla and toast. Full-bodied and well structured with rounded tannins. No excuse needed to open this wine! Drink with light Spanish tapas at casual lunches or after work on a rooftop terrace. Also pairs perfectly with young cheeses, BBQ chicken and grilled vegetables.
