An afternoon with the legendary Telmo Rodriguez
In November we got to meet the legendary winemaker Telmo Rodriguez! We had a taste of range of wines and was blown away by the Gazur 2017 series. However, our biggest surprise of the afternoon was something else completely unexpected.. find out what it is below!
As to the bottle we were completely blown away by – It is the Sierras De Malaga Mountain Blanco 2014. We were surprised by the uniqueness of Mountain Blanco. Notes of pineapple and a burst of fruity and complex flavours (hints of bay leaf). Telmo Rodriguez himself explained to us that it was never an intention to create a dry white using Moscatel (Muscat) grapes. The grapes were originally meant for making their Compañia de Vinos Molino real Mountain wine. Lucky for the wine world, he decided to produce ‘Mountain Blanco’ after trying out the first batch using their 2nd choice grapes!
We can’t wait to share more wine tasting sessions with you guys! If there are any wines that catches your eye feel free to give us a shout out! You’ll never know, they may make it to our marketplace.
If you’re interested in giving the Sierras De Malaga Mountain Blanco 2014 a try, place an order here!
P.S. The snacks at Ce La Vi (we met Telmo Rodriguez here) were the bomb. Look out for the Boneless Korean Fried Chicken Wings
Bodegas El Nido is part of Gil Family Estates. This tiny winery was founded in 2002 and is located in the Aragona valley with over 44 hectares of 70-year-old Monastrell (Mourvèdre) and 35-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon. These are very old grapevines and all of them have a north to northeastern orientation.
Bodegas Borsao is the origin and engine of the D.O. “Campo de Borja” (Zaragoza, Aragón, north-eastern Spain) or the well-known “Empire of the Garnacha”.
Bodegas Ateca is one of six wineries belonging to the Gil Family Estates. The winery is well-known for its terroir-driven orientation and its use of indigenous grape varieties.
In the late 1990’s, Toni Sarrion began a one man crusade to save the indigenous variety Bobal and coax it from obscurity and rusticity to the forefront of truly world class wines.
Chacra was created by Piero Incisa della Rocchetta in 2004 with the intention of finding the most unobstructed expression of the climate, micro-climate, and terrior of Mainqué in the Río Negro region of Patagonia.
