Wines included in a case
Botani Old Vines 2017
Botani is the result of a collaboration between renowned Spanish wine exporter Jorge Ordonez and Austria’s top sweet wine producer, the Kracher family. This unique dry white wine comes from the D.O. Sierras de Málaga wine region in southern Spain and is made with the Muscat of Alexandria grape which was brought to the area from Alexandria in Egypt by the Phoenicians.
The very difficult terrain here makes viticulture challenging since the vineyards are on steep north-facing slopes at 400 to 600 metres of altitude and need to be harvested and tended by hand. Many of the Muscat vines here are up to 70 years old and help to produce a very fragrant wine which is light and refreshing despite the extremely hot climate.
The nose sings with orange blossom, ripe apricots, peaches and crisp lemon zest, while the first sip reveals a racy acidity and generous stone fruit flavours. The winery ages the wine on the lees for 8 months to give a richer, creamier texture and a pleasing roundness to the wine. Thanks to its vivacious character and fragrant nose, Botani is the perfect wine to serve alongside spicy Asian dishes like Thai curries or noodle dishes.
Avancia Godello 2016
Godello, a once near extinct varietal from Northwestern Spain, has made a comeback in the past couple decades, and Bodegas Avancia has been at the forefront the whole time. The fruit for their Avancia Godello bottling comes from four vineyards, the oldest of which was planted in 1904, and the youngest in 1936. Needless to say, these are some of the oldest Godello vineyards in the Valdeorras. Aromas of peach, apricot, and honey are followed by tastes of pineapple, honeydew melon, and white flowers. Ripe and juicy without being heavy, this medium bodied wine has a good balance of weight and acidity.
Paired with seafood, this wine shows its true strength. A grilled scallop salad, simple halibut ceviche, or a steamed langostine brushed with garlic-herb butter would all be beautiful matches to bring out this wines acidity and fruit forward character.
Located in the province of Galicia in Northwestern Spain, Bodegas Avancia is collaboration between Jorge Ordonez and Bodegas Godeval, both early pioneers who helped reintroduce Godello to the market in the 1990’s. Dry-farmed and sourced from old vines planted high on terraces, the Avancia Godello is fermented with natural yeast in large 500-600 liter oak demi-muids and puncheons. Following fermentation, the wine is aged for 10 months in oak barriques on the lees, and stirred frequently.
Acustic Celler Acustic Blanc 2016
Expressive aromas of white peaches, thyme, fennel and lemon zest awaken the senses, while the vivacious palate offers racy freshness, a well-rounded mouthfeel and intense apricot and citrus flavours. The fine balance between acidity, alcohol and a generous full body makes this an excellent partner for salmon tartare, steamed cockles or a typical local Catalan dish of salted cod served with vegetables.
The Acustic Blanc is a versatile white wine with a multifaceted, complex personality thanks to the four different grape varieties that make up the blend. The dominant variety is Garnacha Blanca, which helps to give a rounded, creamy texture to the wine, followed by Macabeo and a drop of Garnacha Tinta and Pansal which is also known locally as Xarel.lo.
Winemaker Albert Jané sources all of the grapes for this distinctive white from 35 to 80 year old vines planted across the Montsant wine region. Here the intense arid climate, organic farming and poor soils help to produce incredibly flavourful fruit that Albert harvests by hand. He then ferments 70% of the wine in stainless steel tanks and the remaining 30% in new French oak barrels before ageing the wine on the lees for 4 months to add extra complexity.
Terras Gauda 2017
Based in the Galician wine region of Rias Baixas, Bodegas Terras Gauda has been producing crisp and fresh white wines using indigenous grape varieties since 1990. This is their classic white which is composed of Albarino, Caino and Loureiro grapes. Each component of the blend brings something different to the finished wine, with the Albarino adding intense aromas and volume, the Loureiro contributing floral notes and the Caino contributing structure and tropical fruit aromas.
The Albarino and Caino are both grown at lower altitude and in warmer conditions which allows them to be harvested earlier with greater concentration of flavour and more body. The Loureiro comes from the estate’s highest vineyards which helps to mature the grapes more slowly and preserve more freshness. Each of the varieties is then macerated and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks with wild yeasts before the blending and bottling takes place.
The first impression is one of great freshness and aromatic complexity with hints of nectarine, pineapple and white flowers. The first sip reveals a bright acidity complemented by mandarin, peach and mint flavours. The pure, crisp character of this white make it an excellent partner for oysters, crab or razor clams as well as spicy Asian dishes.
Nisia Las Suertes 2017
Bodegas Ordóñez are considered one of the top local producers of Verdejo in Rueda thanks to their unique ancient vineyards which date back to 1885. Located near the town of Puras, this part of Rueda had the good fortune to escape the phylloxera disease which devastated European wine industry in the 19th century. Today the estate boasts one of just a handful of ungrafted Verdejo vineyards which is capable of producing sensational white wines.
To ensure the grapes reach the winery in perfect condition Bodegas Ordóñez insists on harvesting by hand. The wine is then fermented using indigenous yeasts in large oak barrels before spending 12 months maturing on the lees in those barrels to add a delicious creamy texture and additional complexity.
As you pour out a glass you’ll immediately notice the brilliant straw yellow hue and exotic aromas of ripe white peaches, pineapple, and toasty notes from the extended maturation process. The first sip reveals a full body, hint of acidity and very long finish with plenty of mature tropical fruit character. An ideal partner for chicken served in a creamy sauce, summer salads or hard cheeses like Manchego or Pecorino.
Vinos Sanz Finca La Colina Sauvignon Blanc 2018
This single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is crafted from grapes which are hand-harvested from Vinos Sanz’s oldest vines. Planted in 1980, these were actually the first Sauvignon Blanc vines to be grown anywhere in the Rueda region. These years of maturity help to give the Finca La Colina Sauvignon Blanc a breathtaking depth and intensity of flavours.
Over the years winemakers have noticed that Rueda is a particularly good canvas for growing Sauvignon Blanc thanks to the extreme continental climate. In the summer daytime temperatures tend to be very high, but during the night temperatures fall significantly which helps the grapes to hang on to their acidity and to ripen more gradually. This slow maturation process helps to express the full potential of the Sauvignon Blanc grape while maintaining a good balance between freshness and alcohol levels in the wine.
The wine opens with a vivacious fragrance of exotic tropical fruits, lemon zest and hints of delicate white flowers which are also found on the palate. Thanks to the vibrant acidity, creamy, full texture and long finish, this is an ideal Sauvignon Blanc to sip alongside baked cod, sea bass or a generous platter of garlicky prawns.
