Cheers recently added two new Spanish wines to our selection from:

 

 

"Beso de Vino"

 http://www.besodevino.com/

“Macabeo”

Region/Wine Appellation: Carinena D.O. Spain.

 

Grapes: 100% Macabeo.

 

Vine Age: 35 - 40 years old (very low yields).

 

Tasting notes: Aged in stainless steel. It gives up aromas of mineral and citrus, particularly fresh lime. This is followed by an intense, savory, and balanced offering that will provide pleasure over the next 12-18 months. Grandes Vinos y Vinedos' collection is replete with stunning values".

88 POINTS THE WINE ADVOCATE ROBERT PARKER.

 

 

 

 

“Seleccion”

 

Region/Wine Appellation: Carinena D.O. Spain.

 

Grapes: 85% Syrah - Garnacha 15%.

 

Vine Age: 15 years old Syrah - 40 years old Garnacha.

 

Ageing: 3 months in French oak barrels.

 

Tasting notes: " The 2009 Beso de Vino Seleccion is a blend of 85% Syrah and 15% Garnacha aged for 3 months in French oak. Black cherry and blueberry aromas lead to a dense, plush, savory wine which finishes with no hard edges. It is shockingly good for the money. Grandes Vinos y Vinedos' collection is replete with stunning values".
