If you're disillusioned with Spanish white wine, think again. This beauty is assertive and delicious, oozing bags of fresh, crisply intense character. White peach, green apples and fennel characters abound, thanks to the wonderful local Macabeo grape. It finishes with a flourish of pithy citrus and almond - the 'serious' edge that we talked about - and screams out for expertly-prepared fish dishes of all kinds. Try now.
Bodegas Castell del Remei was designed and built in 1780 with the purpose to make aged wines.
The drinking experience: On approach, this unique creation of theirs appears pale yellow with metallic highlights. There is a varietal note of fig leaves followed by floral aromas and hints of fennel, aniseed and dill, with a touch of citrus. That's the beautiful Macabeo grape. Smooth and balanced on the palate, with a subtle bitterness that adds length. Slightly acidic lingering finish, with notes of under-ripe fruit.
When we first tasted this wine we were blown away. It remains one of the most exciting wine experiences of late! It rekindled our passion in the pure, clarion wines of the north of Italy with a completely different flavour spectrum and a vitality.
Type: Grenache Blanc blend
We're all for the cloning of great, established styles. In the best way, they never quite work, never quite taste the same. And this is the great part. They emulate and, at the same time, create something completely new. In this case a Chateauneuf Blanc-style with a distinctly South African twist.
Type: Chardonnay blend
This wine is made by a man called Jesus at Bodegas Pirineos. This Bodega has always boasted some of the oldest vineyards in the whole region, giving a silky concentration to its produce. This speciality is important since many other great vineyards with indigenous stock have been ripped up.
