in either of the two coastal towns. This Fino was matured at Bodega Los Arcos, Lustau's main facility. The building, constructed in 1862, sits at N° 53 Calle de los Arcos in the geographic center of town. The wine was drawn from two butts out of a solera of 708 and was bottled without filtration. The Fino de Jerez develops extra textural interest in the mouth with resin and bitter orange notes and a nice, sappy tang on the finish.

El Puerto de Santa María is bordered to the south by the Río Guadalete and to the west by the Atlantic Ocean. This town is probably most famous for being the port from which Columbus Read More...
began his second journey to the Americas. It forms the southernmost corner of the sherry triangle and it enjoys mild weather for the majority of the year. This Fino was matured at Bodega del Drago, which is located less than one mile from La Puntilla beach. It was drawn from two butts out of a solera of 347 and was bottled without filtration. The Puerto is perhaps the most nuanced of Lustau's "En Rama" bottlings as it exhibits pronounced mineral and toasted almond notes that lead into a tautly drawn, lingering finish.

of flor and imbues the wines with their signature salty character. This Manzanilla was aged at a bodega facing La Calzada beach on the banks of the river. It was drawn from two butts out of a solera of 135 and was bottled without filtration. This is a snappy, lissome wine that is
almost overwhelmingly saline and positively begs for the shellfish of Sanlúcar.

place that still grows Moscatel grapes, which has very sandy soil. Legend is that there are some pre-phyloxera vines there... This wine is also quite dark for its age, and has the telltale Moscatel profile of candied orange, honeysuckle and sweet Muscat grapy notes. They do not dehydrate the grapes, they wait and harvest them very late, with some overripeness. With some time it surprises me because it ends up smelling of cola sweets. Drink 2013-2020. 8/13"

nose still has some fruity aromas from the grapes, intermixed with the noble woods, which comes through as a textbook, young Oloroso nose. The medium-bodied palate reveals very clean flavors of roasted nuts and a touch of brandy. It’s a good entry-level Oloroso, with good quality to price ratio. Drink 2013-2015. 8/13"

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS-The 2009 Macan has aromas of black rather than red fruit, ripe and intense blackberries with some floral notes developing with time. Read More...
Dense with licorice and some prune flavors, it is spicy and balsamic as well as tighter and more backward. They told me they don't like green aromas, but they also dislike notes of liqueur. Concentrated but managing to keep the freshness, it is a clean, powerful and modern red in need of a little bottle aging to polish its tannins. It will be fascinating to see how these wines develop in bottle, and how the Rioja character, the vineyards, come through with time. 40,000 bottles produced. Drink 2016-2025.

Perhaps the most eagerly-awaited new wine launch of recent years…VEGA SICILIA and BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD have officially released their joint venture Rioja wines.

The Marques de Murrieta wines are always among our favorites from Rioja and one of our best sellers. Their tradition of winemaking dates to 1852 when they became the first producer Read More...
of wine in Rioja Alta and their knowledge definitely translates into a delicious glass of wine. The 2010 vintage in Rioja is highly acclaimed as producing ripe and balanced wines with enticing aromatics. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate practically gushes with praise, describing the wine as having "gob-smacking precision and elegance, astonishing purity and harmony" and being the "best Reserva from Murrieta in recent times." Finally, he declares the wine as having "Mind boggling quality for the price!" We tasted this classically styled Riojan wine and wholeheartedly agree!

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The blend for the 2010 Rioja Reserva varies depending on the growing season. In the warm and ripe 2009 it was 93% Tempranillo, 4% Mazuelo and 2% Graciano and 1% Garnacha Tinta, always from their own vineyards and hand-harvested between October 2 and 23. Maria the winemaker thinks the Garnacha does not add much to their blend. The grapes fermented separately in stainless-steel vats and the wine aged for 21 months in American oak barrels. There is gob-smacking precision and elegance here. It's a pure wine with no oak that is super harmonious, floral and fragrant. I simply fell in love with the nose. Now onto the palate. The entry is really fluid, and then it explodes in your mouth, filling it along a thread of fine acidity making it long and tasty. It has the same astonishing purity and harmony, focus and precision found in the nose. This has to be the best Reserva from Murrieta in recent times. Bravo! One million bottles produced, but all the wine is one single lot and all the bottles you can find are exactly the same just they are bottled continuously for four months. Mind boggling quality for the price asked."

Bodegas Mauro is located in the municipality of Tudela del Duero, in the province of Valladolid, in the heart of the Duero Valley. Its oenologist, Mariano García, one of the references Read More...
in the world of Spanish wine, has been the head of the technical team at Vega Sicilia for several decades.

Mauro is a wine that represents not only a terroir but also a way to understand wines. After a meticulous selection of the grapes, it is lodged into deposits, separating the grape batches by varieties, estates and production areas.

20% of the barrels are renewed annually. 75% of the barrels are made of French oak and the other 25% of American oak, all of them of extra tight grained wood and dried for at least 3 years. The Mauro was aged for 16 months in Allier and Never French oak barrels and in American oak barrels, all of them with different toastings.

In this 2011 Mauro, you’ll find black cherries, herbs, licorice, chocolate and spices. Very smooth, full and round. Creamy, but with well-integrated acid.

that is “semi-new” (i.e. a new barrel that is “broken in” with a wine beforehand). It has an unashamedly opulent bouquet of primal, ripe, boysenberry, mulberry, dark chocolate and crushed violets that blossom with aeration. The palate is full-bodied with crisp acidity cutting through the pure blackberry and cassis fruit. It has wonderful focus and intensity, though the finish demonstrates convincing composure. This is an outstanding Gran Reserva whose silky texture will instantly win you over. Drink 2013-2030+"

Muga is one of the great names in Spanish winemaking and has been a cornerstone of our Spanish wine selections for at least 20 years. The “Prado Enea” is the longest lived and most traditional bottling from Muga—always an impressively balanced wine showing finesse and power; floral delicacy and deep black fruit. Neal Martin from The Wine Advocate recently visited the Bodega and tasted four vintages from four decades—the 1970, 1981, 1991, and 2005. As we’d expect, the reviews were filled with superlatives (and an average score of 94.5pts). We know these wines are great now, but what happens to a wine you suspect can age a long time, 20, 30, or 40 years down the road? The answer is in the series of reviews from the August Wine Advocate: “vibrant,” “amazingly fresh and vital,” “a complex, cerebral bouquet,” “a complex array of flavors,”... Of course we recognize most of us won’t age a wine 30 or 40 years, but the 2005 vintage is truly special in Rioja and this favorite bottling Muga is exemplary. It is one of those “now and forever” kind of wines. With a decanter and 20 minutes of patience you will see the many layers of greatness of the 2005 Muga.

modern profile than the Reserva or the Castillo de Ygay. It’s a blend of 74% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Graciano from a single vineyard called Canaja, planted in 1950, which yields one kilo of grapes per plant. The different varieties are fermented separately in stainless steel and oak vats. The wine carries out its malolactic fermentation in new Allier barrels, where it matures for a further twenty months, but the varieties are kept separated for the first 13-14 months. The wine is left to settle in concrete vats for six months before being bottled. It displays a dark ruby color, a serious nose with some balsamic, minty notes, and aromas of licorice, cedar wood, smoke, cigar ash, a mixture of red and black fruit, and spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon. It feels more Atlantic than Mediterranean. The palate is round and elegant, with great acidity, amulti-dimensional character, and a very long finish. 22,500 bottles were filled. Drink 2014-2028. "

Ester Nin has released her new wine: Planetes. A coupage of Garnacha (70%) and Cariñena originating from the estate of the same name, which has vineyards that are still fairly young (Read More...
12 years old at present). Moreover, Planetes de Nin is Porrera's first 'Vi de Vila' (literally, 'Town Wine'); in the style of the French Crus, the DOQ Priorat introduced new legislation (2009) that recognises and protects the region's different climatic areas, with the aim of highlighting their own individual characteristics, including vinicultural, soil and climate. In the case of Porrera, the area is particularly cool with no over-ripening; a Planetes only has to be opened for this to be confirmed and to enjoy its sincerity; this is a genuine terroir wine, a truthful expression of the Priorat's historic grape varieties: the Garnacha and the Cariñena.

Despite the youthfulness of the vines, the exceptional characteristics of the area and the terrain, and also the care that both Ester and Carles devote to their cultivation and to every wine-making process (certified organic agriculture and biodynamic farming methods), allow us to enjoy - yet again with this 'new arrival' - the finesse, elegance and great complexity which we have grown used to from this winery. More easily affordable, but on the same lines as the truly excellent Nit de Nin. If you can get hold of a few bottles, then don't think twice.
