LA BASTID Viura Blend 2019

Olivier Riviere La Bastia 2019, one of Riojas young guns and a big part of the postmodern revolution of the region. Le Bastid is a 90% Viura, 10% Garnacha Blanca, fermented and matured in 500 liter French oak barrels.
With resemblance to a good Burgundy the wine opens up with ripe white stonefruit (plum juice, white peaches) and a lemongrass herbiness. Followed by a whiff of toast and nuts that lies over a stoney minerality. Good energy on the palate with a fresh acidity and savoury qualities on the mid palate that brings dimension and complexity through the finish.
Paired with an improvised salmon and shrimp casserole in a mushroom infused velouté topped with fried parsley and sourdough croutons.
Serve it at 10-12 degree in a burgundy glass

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Wonderful. Classic nose. Hint of tar, leather and prune and fig. Truly elegant expression of CNdP - smooth tannins - with a super long finish. Just terrific. - will try to wait on the rest - time to evolve further. — 13 days ago

Ava White Rhône Blend 2013

White Rhône-style blend. Crisp acidity, medium plus body. Meyer lemon, apricot and honeysuckle notes on the palette. Fantastic balance and elegance to this wine. Well done for a Canadian blend of Marsanne, Rousanne and Viognier!! Love this winery! — 19 days ago

Cuvée Violette Syrah 2018

Funny that they call this "Cuvee Violette" because I think the first word I would use to describe this is "purple". Violet as in the flower is there too... This one is really softened up with the Viognier... Soft as one of those grey internet kittens with almost a smiley face... A lovely expression. No sharp edges here! — 7 days ago
