- Blanco Nieva Verdejo Pie Franco 2011. Viñedos de Nieva. DO Rueda (9,55 EUR)
Fresh, herbaceous and even Green with some hints of geranium. Maybe it’s too young yet.
- Gravonia Cza. 2004. López de Heredia. DOC Rioja (12,05 EUR)
Disappointing. No trace of what a Gravonia is can be found in this bottle. Just a mere white wine, maybe I’d use the word ‘ramplón’ if I take a look to the label.
- Lecea Tinto 2012. Bodegas Lecea. DOC Rioja (3,5 EUR)
Easy and good quaff for everyday.
- Ramblis Monastrell 2012. Viñedos Culturales - Bernabé Navarro (9-12 EUR)
Monastrell? Yeah! I’m the First that thinks in dark, thick, full of alcohol and overripen wines when monastrell is the name of the game. Not this one. Light, fresh, bright, full of angles and edges, wild and rough… More!!!
- Goyo García Viadero. Finca El Peruco 2009. DO Ribera del Duero (29.5 EUR)
Enough. Just enough. I don’t really know whether it’s enoughly explanatory. It doesn’t have anything to grab, or to move me, but it’s an enoughly good quaff.
- Colet-Navazos Extra Brut 2009. Equipo Navazos. DO Penedès
The oxidative hints have gone to a soft siff, a bit less than creamy maybe. It’s a nice sparkling quaff.
