2014 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.

2014 Adegas Valtea Albariño Rias Baixas

Nestled on the bank of the Miño River, Adegas Valtea has a special mesoclimate that beautifully ripens its grapes. The best bunches of Albariño are handpicked and gently pressed at the peak of their maturity. Tasting notes from the winery: "Straw-yellow color with green and golden glints, clean and bright. Intense fruity nose of apricot, pineapple, and apple with hints of white flowers. Full and fleshy palate with a balanced acidity that gives it freshness. Persistent with an elegance and lingering finish."

2014 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 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina

Amats is both the brand name of the Txakoli as well as one of Zudugarai's vineyards. It's a beautiful vineyard, a sandy substrate covered in naturally growing green cover between the rows, with the Cantabrian Sea in full view to the north. Produced from Hondarribi Zuri grapes, this is classic Txakoli: zippy, crisp, tart green apple flavors are enlivened by a lovely sparkle from the CO2 retained in tank during fermentation.

2015 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina

Ameztoi produces some of the tastiest, most representative and classic txakoli: the delicious, bright, slightly petillant (fizzy), low alcohol wines that are consumed like water in Spanish Euskadi (Basque Country). Vineyards are a stone's throw from the ocean, full of verdant, green cover throughout the year. Predominantly Hondarribi Zuri, with 10% Hondarribi Beltza from 20- to 25-year-old vines, fermented in stainless. Briny and bright, the Ameztoi refreshes with juicy lime fruit and Txakolina's characteristic spritz. Delightful.

2013 Palacio de Menade Verdejo Rueda

Ricardo Sanz is one of the leading figures in the Rueda D.O. His 2013 Palacio de Menade is clean, citrusy, and quite refreshing. It is a leaner style, without any of the tropical fruit sometimes present in wines from Rueda. Enjoy this as a delicious change of pace from Sancerre or Sauvignon Blanc.

2014 Neboa Albariño Rias Baixas

Produced by a 25-grower cooperative located in the Condado do Tea sub-zone of Rias Baixas, this is crisp, citrus and yellow fruited Albariño from a challenging, but ultimately rewarding, cooler and damper vintage. The results are a very fresh white that has just enough juicy fruit to balance the clean salinity and crisp acids. This is a perfect aperitive and of course, is a seafood-ready white!

Wine is fermented in enamel tanks and aged in very large, neutral oak "cubas."

A classic Spanish Rioja made from 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia. This isn't the oxidative-style of white Rioja made famous by Lopez de Heredia, but rather a youthful, briefly barrel fermented and aged, crisp white wine.

This method was the norm of yesteryear, but is so labor intense that it was discontinued in most wineries, and gives a big diversity of wines, as each barrel has its own character, which contributes to the complexity of the blend.

Bohigas is a very high quality producer of Cava as well as table wines. Xarel-lo, the basis for most Cavas, can be a little green and lacking in character when made as a table wine. Unless, of course, it is carefully grown and harvested when fully ripe. This white is very mineral, with clean, precise flavors joining an elegant texture.

Lustau "3 En Rama" Fino En Rama Jerez - Spring 2016 bottling (500ml)

This minimally filtered, en rama Fino comes from a fairly large solera in Jerez, and is characteristically the richest and fullest in body of the "3 En Rama" series. Fortunately for all of us fans of "en rama," or minimally filtered and minimally processed Sherries, Lustau bottles three excellent examples from their extensive holdings.

2011 Lagar de Costa "Barrica" Albariño Rias Baixas

Lagar de Costa is a typically small, family owned winery based in the town of Castrelo, one town over from Cambados, "the birthplace of Albariño."

This barrel aged Albariño is one of the few examples to master the balance between fruit and oak; I urge anyone who insists that Albariño must never spend time in oak to try this wine and taste with an open mind. In this cuvee, the juicy, playful, intense and incredibly pure quality of the fruit turns the tables and dominates the oak... Read More »
