A 'Joven-style' red exhibiting freshness and purity. Berry-bright and fresh with suggestion of cherry blossom, it has gentle fruit jelly glycerol up front, yielding to finely-grained crunchy tannins, with good length and gentle closing acidity.
Pale yellow colour with green glints. An intense nose with clear aromas of tropical fruits and aromatic herbs. A crisp, and very tasty wine with light acidity and structure. Pronounced flavours of grapefruit, lemon and peach. A delicious and interesting alternative to Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.
Golden yellow in colour with greenish hints. Clean, powerful and fresh on the nose, the palate is full of fruity, herbal flavours with a touch of fennel coming through on the finish. Full flavoured and powerful but well balanced with a silky texture and wonderful length.
Pale gold in colour with lively reflections. There are clean, powerful aromatics on the nose with apricot, white flowers and a sort of saline, sea-shell undertone. Spices such as clove, mint and fennel are also present. The palate displays sweet lemon and ripe melon with plenty of zing and grapefruit peel. A wine of great complexity and style and with bags of character. Treixadura is truly a noble grape!
The Puligny from Alain Chavy is bursting with ripe tropical fruit characters, balanced by a concentrated limey acidity and lick of spicy oak.
The Alain Jaume Rasteau "Les Valats" has a deep red garnet colour. The dominant aromas are of fresh red and black fruit. On the palate, the richness of the tannins harmonise with the full yet fleshy character of the wine. The finish has a good gripand it is long with spicy notes, menthol and chocolate nuances.
This wine is made using predominantly Grenache Noir and is finished off with some Syrah and Mourvedre. This wine was fermented and and then aged for 12 - 14 in concrete vats before being bottled.
Made by the Catena family, this is a rich, cassis-laden Cabernet with ripe blackcurrant and plum fruit all over the place. A hint of minty eucalyptus and toasty oak spice add depth and complexity. Smooth tannins and freshness.
Made by the Catena family, this fantastic Malbec offers bright black cherry aromas with floral notes and a touch of spice. Tasting Note:Showing ripe dark berry fruit along with nice spicy notes.

The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.
Loads of red fruit aromatics, with flavours of raspberry jam and blueberry. Herbal notes and light balsamic aromas accompany the fruit. This wine is fresh and lively.
