The wines of the September shipment share a common vicinity, with vineyards clustered in the north of Spain. All of these wines are imported by our friend Marta Plana of The Winetones, and showcase the wines of the Castilian landscape.
This month's selections:
|Wine Selection||Tasting Notes||Pairing|
|2022 Lopez de Haro Blanco, Viura blend||ripe fruit, dates, fresh, balanced||warming appetizer of brie, nuts, orange jam|
|2018 Bardos Reserva, Tinta del Pais, Cabernet||cherry red, fruit compote, French
|a hearty chili|
|2020 El Pacto Tinto, Tempranillo blend||berries, licorice, hints of spice and
|roasted beets, Idiazabal cheese|
In the northern parts of Spain, wines are unique thanks to warm days and cool nights, beneficial for grape ripening and flavor development. This month's wines represent the region well, with hearty, fruit-forward red wines, and crispy, tart white wines.
This month marks the beginning of the harvest season - it will be interesting to see what the 2023 vintage looks like with an uncharacteristic heat wave.
We hope you enjoy these elegant, expressive, and aromatic wines! Tag us on lnstagram at @curateathome to be featured on our page!
