2016 Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja

Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. Most of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 20 hectares, which are north-facing and located at 600 meters in altitude, affording the visitor with one of the most dramatically beautiful views of Rioja's main mountain ranges: the Sierra Cantabria mountains immediately to the north and the Sierra de la Demanda mountains to the south. This white win... Read More »

2016 Adegas Valtea Albariño Rias Baixas

Our third vintage of this direct import Albariño, this wine shows everything we like in the grape: hints of lemongrass, lively stone fruit, and a brisk, saline-tinged palate. Located in the sub-zone of Condado do Tea, where the days are a bit warmer and evenings are slightly cooler, there is a wonderful mid-palate presence to complement the typically lean and mineral qualities of Albariño. A classic with any shellfish, especially Dungeness crab!

2014 Laventura Viura Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I also tasted the 2014 Viura, which will be released very soon. It's also an old vine, field blend of Viura with some 10% of other white grapes that fermented in 600-liter oak barrels. It's a slightly riper and gentler vintage, with integrated acidity, showing the character of the year; it fermented naturally and tries to show the character of the grape and place, keeping the wine in contact with the lees but without bâtonnage. The palate is soft and gentle, very clean and approachable, easy to drink. This is a fresh and precise Rioja white; it's only th ...Read More »

2016 Pazo de Señorans Albariño Rias Baixas

91 points Wine Spectator: "#35 on the 2017 WS Top 100! This big white is round and polished, with good weight and solid acidity behind the pear, blanched almond and white tea flavors. Ginger and briny notes give this a savory character. A muscular style." (9/2017) K&L Notes: Albarino is the perfect summer white, but its naturally crisp acidity and peachy citrus flavors make it enjoyable year-round as an aperitif or paired with a variety of foods, particularly shellfish and seafood. It hails from the Rias Baixas zone of Gallicia, on the northwest coast of Spain. Walk through any given fishing v... Read More »

2016 Castillo de Vinas Blanco Rioja (Previously $15)

Castillo de Viñas is a label put together by our good friend María Alvarez for her Spanish Wine Exclusives portfolio of wines (many of which we direct import ourselves). The Castillo de Viñas white and rosé both come from a true maestro in the village of Cordovín, Honorio Rubio. Having quickly earned a reputation amongst staff and our more savvy customers for producing whites which recall the great whites of Lopez de Heredia, this bottling is a younger, fresher style, though one that still benefits from great terroir and winemaking, including a generous ...

2015 Adegas Valtea "Finca Garabato" Albariño Rias Baixas

Finca Garabato is a parcel of Valtea's oldest wines. You will notice that it says "2o Año" on the label, which refers to the fact that it ages in tank on its lees for a year following fermentation. This gives the wine a lovely richness, whichreally ramps up the flavor and textural qualities of the wine. Still refreshing, only richer than the regular Valtea bottling and ready to take on a meal.

2016 Fefiñanes Albariño Rias Baixas

This is a delicious Albariño, always one of our top two or three for someone looking for a classic expression of this white wine. A wonderfully mineral nose leads to bright, succulent, yellow stone fruit flavors with more than a wisp of salinity adding freshness and making it pretty difficult to not gulp this one down quickly. Palacio de Fefiñanes is the oldest known brand of Albariño and the first to have bottled their wine. Based in the "birthplace of Albariño," the seaside town of Cambados, the winery purchases fruit from 60 growers, many of whom own... Read More »

2015 Do Ferreiro Albariño Rias Baixas

Do Ferreiro is a benchmark Albariño. Every year, it delivers the goods, showing a degree of aromatic complexity, nervy minerality, and pure intensity of flavor that always makes it stand out from the rest. Delicious upon release, it is also one of the few Albariños to improve in bottle for up to a decade (maybe longer?) beyond the vintage year. There is bright fruit intermingling with the classic Do Ferreiro salty/smoky mineral bite. Enjoy this wine on its own or with all types of seafood. This would even be terrific with a hearty bean soup. (Joe Manekin... Read More »

2015 Laventura Viura Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Laventura Viura is mostly Viura from old vines with a 5% blend of other white varieties. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in 600-liter oak barrels for 12 months with the lees. The grapes were sourced from Villabuena in the Rioja Alavesa. It's balanced and elegant, in the house style, clean and precise without any excess. It also has well-integrated oak and perfect ripeness; it turns more balsamic with time in the glass. The varietal line keeps the Laventura brand, and the wines show good typicity. (LG)" (2/2018) K&L Notes: Native South African Br... Read More »

2016 Adur Getariako Txakolina

Adur is a Getariako Txakolina with a slightly different approach and resulting palate profile. While nearly all of the D.O.'s vineyards face north within a few kilometers of the Cantabrian Sea, Adur has two vineyards - one of them near the sea and another a bit further inland. This latter vineyard allows for relatively riper grapes (which in this cool, misty portion of Spain means 11.5-12% potential ABV!), and the blend of fruit from these two vineyards yields a bright, expressive, slightly broader style of Txakoli - perhaps somewhere between a Txakoli a...

Honorío Rubio is a Riojano white wine specialist. In a land best known for its incredibly age-worthy reds, among many die-hards out there it is undoubtedly the traditional whites which represent Rioja's finest and most original wines.

2015 Vivanco Blanco Rioja

Produced from a blend of Viura, Malvasia and Tempranillo Blanco, this is a wonderfully fresh, minerally white typical of the best unoaked whites of the region. Perhaps there is a bit more flesh and richness due to the presence of Tempranillo Blanco, a naturally occuring mutation of the Tempranillo grape that gives wine of great character, richness and intensity.

From a solera begun in 1991, this spectacular Sanluqueño Amontillado contains wine of an average age of 15-20 years old. Blended in, there is a tiny amount of very old wine discovered in the bodega shortly after its purchase. It had been sealed in plaster, as the former owner was apparently determined to keep this pre-phylloxera wine, unblended, all to himself! Aromatics reveal salty flor, followed by toffee.

They harvested early because it had rained and the forecast was for more rain and risk of botrytis. The result is very low alcohol and pH. Some time in bottle has polished it, and it's now quite approachable, gentler and very mineral. It's super tasty, with a salty finish. This is a bit of a wild vintage of Leirana, in line with the 2013. 30,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2016. (LG)" (8/2017) 92 points Vinous: "P ...Read More »

New wine from Granada! This blend of Macabeu, Jaen Blanca, and Moscatel shows juicy yellow fruit, perhaps a bit rounder than the nose suggests, with an appealingly soft texture and flavors that also suggest pears and tinned fruit. Farmed on white soils with lots of sand and round stones, at 900m above sea level, this white is incredibly easy drinking on its own, though it has sufficient acidity and restrained, delicious fruit that would enable it to pair well with any variety of tapas and lighter meals.

2014 Enric Soler Vinyes de Xarel-lo "Improvisació" Penedes (Previously $40)

Enric Soler is a Xarel-lo master. His wines are highly sought out in his native Catalunya and throughout Spain; we believe it is high time to share these top quality Penedes whites. The "Improvisació" bottling comes from 40-65 year-old Xarel-lo growing in calcareous clay soil. Incredibly expressive, this white shows yellow fruit flavors, a fennel like savor, great volume and loads of freshness. Think very good quality white Burgundy, transposed to the beautiful, warmer, sunnier Mediterranean.

Pérez Barquero "Gran Barquero" Fino en Rama Montilla-Moriles (500ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As with many other wineries, there is a new bottling of Barquero's NV Fino Gran Barquero en Rama, marked Saca de Primavera 2017, bottled in the spring of 2017.
