2016 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. Try this refreshing, vibrant, low in alcohol white wine with a wide range of foods, from obvious choices such as seafood (grilled sar... 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 »

2015 Conde de Albarei Albariño Rias Baixas

A tasty and affordable Albariño, this 2015 vintage of Conde de Albarei, with a bit of bottle age, 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.

2016 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina

90 points Wine & Spirits: "The acidity is fierce in this textbook Txakoli, and the citrus flavors accentuate the cutting acidity. 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). Vineyards are a stone's throw from the ocean, full of verdant, green cover throughout the year. Predominantly Hondarribi Zuri, with 10% Hondarribi Bel... Read More »

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.

2015 Forja de Salnes "Leirana" Albariño Rias Baixas

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted two vintages of the entry-level Albariño, starting with the 2015 Leirana, which is sourced from different villages of the Salnés Valley. 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 »

2016 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 aperitif and of course, is a seafood-ready white!

2014 Jorge Ordóñez Botani Muscat Dry Sierras de Málaga Top Pick!
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.

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.

Wine Spectator: "Shows a light piney hint before bright chamomile and honeysuckle aromas fill in. Rather nervy through the palate, featuring a finish of green almond and fennel notes. (Web-2014)" K&L Notes: A wonderful expression of Manzanilla, the La Cigarrera always comes to us very fresh, expressing the briny, sea air quality for which these wines are known. It is bone dry, appley and has suggestions of loquat fruit and pits, with terrific complexity, no doubt due to the bodega's prime location in the "barrio bajo" section of Sanlucar, as well as its use of an amazing eight criade...

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.

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 »

Valdespino "Tio Diego" Amontillado Jerez

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Extremely dry, this austere Amontillado comes from the white chalky albariza soils of the famed Macharnudo vineyard. It aged under flor for about eight years, and then spent eight more years aging oxidatively before being bottled. At first, it shows only the classic flavors of iodine and salt, with enchanting sea breeze notes.

Only for fans of super-dry Sherry, this is ideal for mojama, cured tuna belly." (10/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Tio D ...Read More »

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.

2014 Gomariz Encostas de Xistos Albariño Ribeiro

X is for xisto, schist in Gallego language, the soil where the vines are planted on the As Penelas vineyard, which is the source for the wine; they are very poor soils where the young plants really struggle to grow.
