Motor America Tierra de Mallorca Fogoneu 2019

It is motor america, but might be a different blend: (callet, monastrel, manto negro) love drinking this- so different. Aromatic mineral, volcanic, cranberry, red licorice, ripe tomato. Grapefruit. Great acidity. Medium minus body. Young, but also mature? Probably goes with every food imaginable. — 6 days ago

The Garage Wine Garnatxa Blanca Macabeo 2019

Years ago in a blind tasting of Spanish white wines a wine friend surprised us all. The quality of the wines was stunning at the most of us praised the wines and labelled them as Montrachet here, Montrachet there.

It was a humble experience and we all learned that day some important lessons. This wine is another great example of Vino Blanco and it delivers overall.

👃The nose delivers great purity and finesse, it’s a party in the nose of wild flowers and soft citrus tones. It’s a feast to smell this kind of nose.

👄In the mouth the wine is pure and powerful in the same time, it’s a wine that has great intensity but is waving very light through my mouth, it’s like pure silk.

💰💰This is a no brainer for me and with around €50,00 it’s not cheap but considering the crazy prices in the white Burgundy wine world it’s cheap.

🕰This is great drinking now but can and will develop in bottle in the upcoming years.

La Araucaria Tinto Paraje La Perdoma Tenerife Valle de la Orotava Listan Negro 2015

Last bottle I had held onto but me methinks it was already on the downward slope. One of my fave Canary wines & so originally vital in all kinds of rose petal, forest leaves, & menthol notes, but now more muted. Bottle variability or just 7 years is pushing it? — 8 days ago

La Araucaria Valle de la Orotava Tinto Listan Negro 2021

Super unique aromas... damp soil, olives, very savory... no prominent fruits. Medium body, some dark fruits in the taste with that overall savory-ness, super chalky tannins that linger on and on. — 2 days ago

Táganan Vinos Atlánticos Red Blend 2018

An airy, effusive and downright beautiful wine is the 2018 Taganan from the Tenerife Envínate property of modernist Spanish winemakers Laura Ramos, Jose Martínez, Roberto Santana and Alfonso Torrente. Created from 100-200 year old vines on volcanic soils, it’s a delicate, restrained wine with a gorgeous, smoky bouquet of sour cherry, strawberries and Provençal herbs; the palate, meanwhile, is saturated with very fine tannins, almost imperceptible acidity and nice length. Served lightly chilled, this is an exciting wine which should gain further interest with age. — 19 days ago

Rosé Blend 2020

Not sure of the varietal(s) in this Spanish Rose’. (Txakoli?) Very little information about this wine on the label of the bottle. Light pink color. Strawberry bubble gum on the nose and pallet. Extremely Fruit forward. Touch of mineral. Hints of RS and CO2. Quite refreshing. — 12 days ago
