Vistalba Corte B 2014

 

 

Intense ruby red in color with violet hues. Subtle notes of rose, pepper, ripe prunes. Tobacco and cinnamon notes appear due to its rest in oak barrels for 12 months. Sweet entrance, full body, velvety tannins and a finish that highlights dark and dense chocolate.

Food Pairings

  • Stews, grilled meat, casseroles
  • Pasta, pizza, spicy dishes
  • Hard Cheeses

 

Garzón Albariño Reserve 2016

 

 

Pale yellow with greenish reflections. Intense on the nose with peach and citrus notes. There’s a freshness and minerality mid-palate that is superb with remarkable acidity and a round crisp finish.

Food Pairings

  • Cod with cockles
  • Citrus prawn salad
  • Grilled seafood with warm mango salad and beans
  • Asian food, Peruvian ceviche or fresh tuna salad

 

 

Garzón Tannat Reserve 2015

 

 

A juicy full-bodied wine. Rich purple in color with very fresh aromas reminiscent of red and black fruits such as plums and raspberries along with a delicate spicy nose. A strong impression on the mouth with tannins and minerality that transform into a wine with great  local soil identity.

Food Pairings

  • Roasted game meats
  • Slowly cooked leg of lam flavored with sage, mint and garlic in olive oil
  • Blue cheese and toasted walnuts
