  1. Cantarrana Verdejo 2020
    Cantarrana Verdejo 2020

    The Agrícola Castellana Cooperative, situated in the heart of the Rueda D.O., was set up in La Seca (Valladolid) by small number of dedicated vine growers wishing to add value to their products.

    Today, it consists of some 400 members who cultivate 2000 hectares of vineyards with modern equipment for the production of 7 millions of litres of wine per harvest and facilities for manufacturing one million of these in oak.

    The Bodega has up to date machinery for the reception of the grapes, pneumatic presses and temperature controlled, stainless steel vessels for fermentation, all of wich have contributed enormously to improve the quality of the wines.

    Another spot on release brimming with summer fruit salad, with a lovely peachy lift. It's juicy and fleshy with just a little snap on the palate to keep it fresh. Drink don't think! PWS

  2. Lopez de Haro Rioja Blanco 2019
    Lopez de Haro Rioja Blanco 2019
    An ethos that blends attention to detail with the high quality old vineyards to create authentic contemporary classics. Based in the historic town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in  the heart of DOCa Rioja surrounded to the north by the Sierra Cantabria and to the south by the Ebro  river. The microclimate of the area and its clay-calcareous soils generate the perfect conditions for the vineyards.

    This is 100% viura from from old vines planted in poor soils on a hillside near San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Selection in the vineyard with a controlled maceration with its skins for about 4 or six hours for a little phenolic grip. Fermented in French oak barrels for three months.

    This is lovely and fresh with a hint of honey toasted oak that sits nicely with the bright clean fruit. So many of the traditional Rioja blanco are overly oaked and lacking freshness so this was a very pleasant surprise when we tasted it. Lots of lovely peachy, pear and apple fruit played of pretty oak flavours in a medium bodied style that is very charming.

  3. Quinta da Muradella Candea Blanco 2016
    Quinta da Muradella Candea Blanco 2016

    Candea is the entry-level label from Quinta da Muradella, sourced from the Monterrei vineyards of close friend, and now collaborator, Juan Jose Vilela. The Vilela family was once one of the region's largest vineyard owners, and played a significant part in Mateo's emergence as one of Spain's most exciting wine growers. The white is drawn from a blend of Doña Blanca (40%), Treixadura (40%) and Verdelho (20%), sourced from mature vineyards rooted in the Tamagos district, close to the Portuguese border. Fermented with natural yeasts and raised exclusively in tank on lees, this bright, juicy, aromatic, southern Galician white is brimming with preserved lemon, white floral and pear-like aromatics and flavours. There's also excellent flesh and some gentle grip on the super-juicy, tonic and racy finish. Delicious, and crazy value. PWS

    This has the austere profile of the cooler vintages, where the whites from Monterrei excel and show the rocky minerality. This is more about soils than grapes, and the palate also reveals the texture. This is incredible for the price. LUIS GUTIERREZ, The Wine Advocate
