Còsmica Connexió Xarello Blend

Huge fan of this magnificent - and curiously inexpensive - wine made on the calcareous clay terroir of Penedes, Spain. 85% Xarel-lo (white grape of Spanish origin, specifically grown in Catalonia), 10% Chardonnay and 5% Muscat of Alexandria. An aromatic mouthful of fleshy peach, lilies, lemon zest (and a few other descriptors I’m still noodling on), with the perfect lick of salinity from the optimal altitude of 300-500m terrain. Two different people have recently said to me “You can’t have both” when I’ve asked for an aromatic wine with good minerality... l’d like to call bullshit on their bullshit and put this on the table, or an Albariño for that matter. Medium bodied, balanced, with a silky texture (yes, silky) and at just €13 a bottle you’re set for a delicious evening. Old world wine makers pursuing tradition and not convention. Never conform to the demand. UP UP UP!! — 4 months ago

Voglar Alto Adige Sauvignon 2015

Stunningly good cool climate SB. Crystalline and pure, zippy and intense minerality. Great weight, styled like a classic Sancerre or Pouilly Fume. Long elevage. Chestnut and acacia. Vineyards sit on the slopes above apple orchards. Very steep terrain. Phoenollically ripe. Delicious. — a year ago

Triga Alicante Monastrell Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Massive 15.5% smackdown from Alicante. Strong thick slow legs. Full bodied. The nose is earthy with white pepper, hint of black licorice. Palate is interesting. Quite silky, immediate attack is dusty, supposedly like the terrain (late revision: this note subsiding over time); then big fruit, the end is a tad candyish with very little tannic grip. I had this with a light meal. It would have paired better with steak, or heat spice. Great wine, but Vatan is better in this price range for Spain.

9.0

Wildekrans Wine Estate is uniquely situated near the coastal village of Hermanus, where the mountainous terrain is complemented by the cool summer sea breezes providing an ideal terroir for producing quality wines. Delicate fruit and biscuity aromas on the nose, followed by a distinct creamy effervesce on the palate, leaving a crisp and clean aftertaste. From its back label — 5 months ago

Ü Pastine Portofino Bianchetta Genovese 2015

Very good, though perhaps past its prime a bit and starting to show a little less character than I'd like. A nice acidity to match it's sunny yellow hue, taste of lemon rind and citrus, medium body, with a lot of rocky minerals and terrain. It is nice to have a wine focus on minerality vs fruit forward compounds. Hope to score a bottle of this a bit younger next time. — a year ago

Gran Reserva 904 Rioja Tempranillo Graciano 2007

This is just an all around beauty. Youngest 904 I’ve ever had and could’ve used a little bit more time in the cellar but such a fun and extremely versatile wine. Takes me back to last summer sitting on La Rioja Alta’s tasting room porch over looking the beautiful terrain of Rioja. — 2 years ago

@Shay A I am right there with you. Every wine in their lineup is terrific. Since you love the 904, you should try and get your hands on some of Ramirez de Ganuza’s wine. Probably my favorite producer from Rioja. Believe their Reserva is still available on wine.com. So damn good
