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 DI 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 Jorge Ordóñez Botani Muscat Dry Sierras de Málaga

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Ordoñez family, Jorge and his sister Victoria, were the first to try and produce a dry, crisp wine from 100% Muscatel de Alexandria in Malaga. This area is known for historic, sweet wines, with ancient history stretching back to 600 B.C. for viticulture. These steep, almost unreal hillside vineyards are planted in decomposed red slate, with a mixture of white quartz. They are complex soils, but the Botani has turned out to be an incredible success story and a great value. The 2014 Botani is light-bodied, shows flowery, fragrant notes with hints of fl ...Read More »

2016 Conde de Albarei Albariño Rias Baixas

A tasty and affordable Albariño, this 2016 vintage of Conde de Albarei is a fine example of this grape variety. Yellow fruit, baked apples, and a slightly smoky, mineral aspect combine for a refreshing white that drinks well on its own or with grilled seafood.

2011 Navazos-Niepoort Palomino Vino Blanco

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Navazos-Niepoort Vino Blanco is an unfortified Palomino Fino fermented in cask from a single vineyard. It offers a fascinating bouquet with subtle oxidative notes combining beautifully with light resinous aromas. The palate is well-balanced with a crisp, walnut tinged entry, crisp acidity and a lovely, slightly abrupt yeasty finish. This is very fine. (NM)" (8/2013) Wine Spectator: "The toasted almond and dried pear flavors have the character of a fino Sherry but the weight and freshness of a table wine.

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 »

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 »

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Produced with Garnacha Blanca grapes, the new 2013 Garnatxa Blanca Brut Nature (they use the Catalan spelling of the grape) is the first I know of produced with the variety. It's sourced from vines grown at high altitude (for Penedès), 800 meters, from 30-year-old plants kept in contact with the lees for no less than 15 months.

2016 Bodegas Angel Rodriguez "Martinsancho" Verdejo Rueda

Angel Rodriguez Leal produces what is hands down the best wine in Rueda: Martinsancho. A family-owned bodega since 1784, holding some of the best real estate in the D.O., their land boasts Verdejo vines which average 40 years of age and stand in a bed of rounded river stones. Wine is fermented in enamel tanks and aged in very large, neutral oak "cubas." The resulting wine is generous, with delicious peach, melon, and guava notes, textural, as well as mineral, focused, and age-worthy.

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...

Valdespino "Inocente" Fino Jerez

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Fino Inocente must be one of the few wines in Jerez that is still fermented in 600-liter American oak botas, which is an incredible amount of work compared with fermenting tens of thousands of kilos of grapes (or even more) in a big stainless steel tank. 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. Furthermore, the bottled wine is on average 8 to 10 years old. One ...Read More »

They consider 2015 a Mediterranean vintage, with a dry summer in July, August and September. The grapes are pressed in absence of oxygen and the must fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, where the wine was kept for three months before bottling.

Then deeper flavors of lime and pineapple appear, calming the wine for raw oysters." (8/2017) K&L Notes: 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).

Composed primarily of Treixadura, this delicious Galician white has terrific freshness as well as a lovely rounded texture, with yellow fruit flavors and subtle minerality. Goto de Gomariz carefully farms their vines organically, with some Fukuoka influence as well, so they do not spray herbicides or insecticides, and use the bare minimum of treatments to keep the vines healthy.

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.
