  • 2021 ‘Nivarius’ Rioja Blanco, Palacios Vinos de FincaWhite Wine

    2021 ‘Nivarius’ Rioja Blanco, Palacios Vinos de Finca

    £1495

    Bodegas Nivarius specialises in the production of white wines from cool-climate vineyards in Rioja.

    This 100% Tempranillo Blanco has intense, fruity notes of zesty citrus, ripe apple and pear are complemented by white floral blossom and mineral nuances. Fresh and beautifully balanced, with a creamy texture and a long finish.

    Nivarius, meaning ‘snow-drift’, takes its name from the common sight of the snowy blanket which covers the vineyards in winter.

    The Tempranillo Blanco grapes are grown in the cool-climate sub regions of the Iregua Valley and the mountainous area of Nalda, Albelda and Clavijo. The warm days and cool nights prolong the ripening period and preserve aromatic richness in the fruit. The soils made up of a mixture of ferrous clay, with calcareous clay. The soils are generally deep with sandy components, which imparts agility and depth to the wine. The Tempranillo Blanco variety produces few clusters, which means it ripens quickly, this trait is balanced by the soils which impart natural freshness. The vineyards are farmed using sustainable methods; chemical sprays are not used, instead organic products are employed in order to protect the environment and biodiversity of the vineyard. This sustainable approach encourages the best expression of the terroir and a true reflection of the aromas and flavours of the white Rioja grape varieties.

  • 2018 Tempranillo de Laderas, BadiolaRed Wine

    2018 Tempranillo de Laderas, Badiola

    £1695

    Badiola is the creation of 2 Masters of Wine, Andreas Kubach and Sam Harrop along with txakoli producer Gorka Izagirre.   Andreas and Sam along with Winemaker Tao Plantón craft modern Rioja wines with an emphasis on-site rather than how long it has aged in an oak barrel.  The winemaking philosophy is to obtain very pure, fresh and well-textured wines that reflect their origin.

    The 2018 Tempranillo de Laderas has pure and precise aromas of cherries and red berries are layered with herbal notes of thyme through to a textured palate. This wine shows an excellent balance between fresh natural acidity, fruit concentration and firm, but fine-grained tannins.

    ‘Laderas’ means hillside and this wine takes its name from the hillside vineyards on which the grapes are grown. The fruit is carefully selected from over 300 parcels that are situated on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria, in Rioja Alavesa. The average plot size is just 0.3 hectares and the average age of the vineyard is approximately 50 years, but some of the vines are significantly older, producing low yields of concentrated juice. The Gobelet trained vines are planted in limestone soils, resulting in elegant wines that are fresh, precise and age-worthy due to the balancing acidity.

    2019 La Montesa Crianza, Palacios Remondo

    £1795 31% saving

    Alvaro Palacios has spent decades pioneering a new order of fine wine across Spain. He has created some of the country’s most iconic wines by championing terroir and native grapes whose potential had been long overlooked and untapped.

    Palacios Remondo is his family’s Rioja estate, tucked in the far eastern corner of the Oriental district. The story in this rugged, high-altitude scrubland is about Garnacha—the territory’s traditional variety and also one of Alvaro’s biggest passions. By focusing on elevating Garnacha-driven wines that are expressive of and authentic to this stunning side of Rioja, Alvaro is continuing to reshape the future of Spanish fine wine.

    This 2019 La Montesa Crianza is made from Garnacha and a small amount of Tempranillo, it is incredibly well-balanced with velvety red-fruit notes and hints of sweet spice, orange peel and dulcet yellow peaches found both in the nose and on the palate.

  • 2017 Limite Sur, Ramon Bilbao, Ramon BilbaoRed Wine

    2017 Limite Sur, Ramon Bilbao, Ramon Bilbao

    £1995

    Limite Sur is a 100% Garnacha from Ramón Bilbao’s parcel of vineyards in Sierra de Yerga in the south of Rioja. It is designed to show the richness and diversity of the Rioja by bringing Rioja’s “forgotten grapes” to life as well as highlighting the possibilities of areas of Rioja once considered to be hard to grow high-quality grapes.
    In the glass, you find intense and complex aromas of red, fresh fruit, flowers and pink pepper. These flavours continue through to the palate that has soft tannin, harmony and balance. The finish is long and satisfying. The perfect companion for red meat, cured meat and cheeses.

    “In my 22 years with Ramón Bilbao, I’ve explored all four corners of my home region and am still doing so,” said head winemaker Rodolfo Bastida. “So much has changed in that time, particularly the climate. What was once impossible for grapes in the north now gives freshness and zest; where Garnacha was a lost grape in Rioja, it now makes elegant, fruit-driven reds when grown at altitude,” he said.
