Family owned and run winery in Huelva, in the deep south of Spain, on the Atlantic coast close to Portugal on one side and the Doñana national park on the other. As a family they show commitment to their locality; they are passionate about their vineyards, mostly put down to the local variety; Zalema. Having converted a substantial portion of their vineyards to organic viticulture they are aiming to have certified wines within the next years and this respect for the naturalness of their environment shows through in the way they produce two distinct fresh young white wines, both made of Zalema, the only difference being the soils they came from. The first, Edalo, comes from soils nearer the sea, sandy, clay soils and measurably higher rainfall. Edalo is vibrant, fresh and young with a distinctively tropical character, pineapple, melon, and peach. Very fruit on the entry with amazing balance of acidity and alcohol. The tropical fruits emerge on the long finish along with apple and pear. Pairs well with seafood, fish and rice

Our family has passed the secret of genuine Bordeaux winemaking from generation to generation. Today, Antoine and Thomas Le Grix de la Salle continue this great heritage. Vineyards of Grand Verdus are blessed with exceptional terroir and micro-climate and benefit from unusual topography in Bordeaux. Variations of altitude create a unique patchwork of soils.

Results are healthier vines and intense wines with greaterdepth, aroma and personality. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc 60%, Semillon 30%, Muscadelle 10% Fresh, bright, enticingly aromatic.

Prieto Picudo: Indigenous grape variety from the Benavente Valleys. It is an easily identifiable grape from its small cone shaped clusters, and deep purple/blue colouring. It produces clean wines with nice red fruit and great freshness, blended with 10% Tempranillo. Aromas of red fruits and blackberries, light toasted and vanilla with hints of blue flowers (lilac and blue violets).

Pegos Claros Palmella
The Pegos Claros is all Castelao, partly aged in oak and coming in at 14% alcohol. As tends to be the case with this grape, it is remarkably flavorful, particularly when young and just opened. It also shows some capacity to evolve, demonstrating a little more finesse and character. It has fine solidity in the mid-palate and reasonable structure, too, with a sunny feel on the finish. It is less clear how long this will hold at peak, but at the moment it should particularly appeal to Grenache lovers who enjoy the bold flavors of that grape. It is easy to drink and easy to like at a nice price level in Portugal.
