On a trip to Spain we discovered the amazing work of Victor Porter. With this wine you'll find the well executed combination of Spain's ancient winemaking history and Valencia's thriving modern winemaking technology. The result? Structure and complexity you'd expect to find in a Rioja Gran Reserva plus the soft fruitiness of a wine far younger in style. We very soon became addicted to this little number. This is Gran Reserva for the price of Crianza - try this mellow blend with tapas.
"After some years travelling around the world I think that finally I have found one of the most interesting places to make my wines, a place that has a perfect combination between tradition (wine has been done in the area since III B.C) and modernity (here in the area I have the most modern technology and most open-minded producers I have ever worked with). I really hope you will enjoy my Valencian wines as much as I have enjoyed making them...
"...In this wine, I have tried to combine the tradition of the Gran Reservas from Rioja with the modernity and cheery character of the Mediterranean people. So in this wine I have combined the spicy notes of the barriques with the typical cinnamon and forest fruit flavours of the Tempranillo grapes, making a complex but soft and easy to drink Gran Reserva wine." - Victor Porter, Winemaker
Old vines, limestone soil and a modern winemaking talent combine here to produce this exceptional wine. A full on red, with berry fruit flavours and a subtle spice, preceding a velvety-smooth finish. Superb!
This Reserva has all the soft, toasty, complex fruit flavours that only so many years aging can bring. There's a lift and vivacity to its portly frame. With a dark berry-soaked core and touch of spice, you won't find a better partner to roast lamb.
Only certain wines have the ability to age for as long as grand Avalon and not turn into vinegar! Thankfully, Avalon had what it took to stand the test of time and after over a decade it's at the peak of its powers. Elegant, smooth and with amazing complexity!
