G.D. Vajra

Kyè Langhe Freisa 2013

My wife wanted to buy me an interesting wine as a Valentine’s Day gift and chose the 2013 G.D. Vajra Kye Freisa. I’ve tasted a lot of the Piedmontese grape varietals, but never Freisa until tonight.

After a decent decant, the Kye, being a dark ruby color, was a deep, rich wine with notes of roasted strawberry, wild blueberry, black plum skin, rolled tobacco, white pepper, blood orange, dried herbs and hot asphalt. The wine initially seemed a little wild, earthy and gamey, but that blew off after a bit. Structurally, the Kye was medium plus body, medium plus tannin, high acid, and had a fairly long finish. Delicious wine that paired well with a fire roasted tomato bolognese with rotini.

Love this stuff - love this grape, big fan of Alvaro Palacios… perfumed nose of red fruit, red flowers, and gentle spices. Smooth graceful on the palate, elegantly structured, generous red berried fruit, spice, licorice all wrapped in velvet — 3 months ago

Colli Orientali del Friuli Schioppettino di Cialla 2010

Schioppettino from 2010. Beautiful, elegant aroma of fresh flowers and light pepper. Sweet fruits. Iron. Medium-bodied. Tart blackberries, anise, with slightly bitter finish and light tannins. Intriguing and graceful. There is a lot more going on here than I can describe now. To think this grape almost died for good... — 2 years ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Gravonia Crianza Rioja Viura 2012

We’ve tasted – and adore – several different wines from the family-run Bodegas López de Heredia. We can now add this one to the list!

It’s a 2012 Rioja Crianza made from the Viura grape (100%) hailing from organically-farmed estate vineyards in the La Rioja region of Rioja DOCa, Spain.

The “Crianza” designation means this white wine spent at least 6 months aging on oak, however, this wine far exceeds the minimum as it was aged for 4 years in oak barrels before release.

It’s absolutely delicious! It has a deep golden hue with rich, well-developed notes of dried apricot, peach cobbler, beeswax, dill, vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch. It is dry, has medium alcohol, and has medium acidity to balance the confectionary aromas and flavors.

It is intensely fragrant and complex, making it an excellent solo sipper. It could also pair with savory, grilled or roasted fish or a flavorful stew like seafood paella.

Bodegas R. López de Heredia, Viña Gravonia, Rioja Crianza (2012), 12.5% ABV.
