Biutiful Brut Nature Cava Macabeo-Chardonnay Blend

Very fresh on the palate, hints of strawberry and very smooth. On the Lee's for 12 months just a few months short of Reserva status this cava not a blend but of only Garnacha grapes, very dry and lively with lines of fine bubbles. This bottle complimented a stir fry of spicy Thai noodles with prawns and garden fresh squash and mushrooms. — 10 days ago

Alma de Cantaro

Bobal

Unusual Ribera del Duero single varietal from some very old Bobal vines found amongst the area’s predominant Tempranillo. Native to the Utiel-Requena region in Valencia, Bobal is a rustic and quite underrated variety known for its big compact bunches and high yield, traditionally used for bulk wine production. In Ribera del Duero, where it is known as Valenciana, it was traditionally used to add color and structure to blends, but rarely vinified on its own. Taking its name from the local expression “Alma de Cántaro” (loosely translated to fool, naïve) represents Magna Vides’ heroic attempt to reclaim Ribera del Duero’s lesser-known and disappearing varieties. Fragrant. Herbal, balsamic notes. Somewhat citric, acidic finish. — 23 days ago
