This is made from the Albillo grape just a bit east of Madrid in Manchuela. Light white gold in color. The nose is interesting. Waxy with chamomile tea and slight lemony notes. On the palate, this is a fuller bodied white. Slightly oily texture but lacking a lot of acidity. Nice apple notes with some minerality. Also a cinnamon quality on the finish which is interesting. Long finish. A very enjoyable wine and a nice change of pace. This will work well with a wide variety of foods. No idea on how well this grape ages.
76% Syrah, 13% Monastrell, and 11% Bobal. This is a blend coming from central Spain. It is a more modern take despite being from an almost forgotten wine region. Purple in color. The nose is nice with black raspberries, some plums, black pepper, roasted meats and herbs. On the palate, this is at peak. No hurry but I would drink in the next five to ten years. Layers of black raspberry fruit with earth and pepper. A nice complexity. Good balance. Good on its own or with food. This was a powerhouse in its youth but has matured nicely. When you drink them really is more of an issue
