  1. Maddi Rioja

    Maddi Rioja

    $18.94

    "If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…it’s probably Rioja. When I tasted this wine it practically screamed where it was from. Cherry, black tea, leather and that tell tale waft of dill…yummmm. My love of Rioja is clearly real. The winery it comes from is Marques de Reinosa, steeped in history and located in the more ‘traditional’ area of Rioja Alta. The wine is named Maddi after the Goddess of the Earth. According to legend, humans requested protection from Maddi against Gaueko, the God of darkness. Maddi blessed the people with two daughters, Ilargi (the Moon) and Eguzki (the Sun), and as the humans did not feel safe, Maddi gave protection to those houses with the flower of sun on their doors. All that being said, this wine was made as an homage to the ‘goddess’ that blessed the earth with the soil and the grapes that make this wine possible. Maddi is ready to drink, a great summer no-brainer red. Simply pull the cork and enjoy!" Learn More

    Hacienda Lopez De Haro Gran Reserva 2008

    $29.94

    Hacienda López de Haro Gran Reserva is a red wine produced by Bodega Classica in D.O. La Rioja. The idea of Bodega Classica is to produce "contemporary classic wines" with a traditional production but a modern twist at the same time. It is the first vintage of this Gran Reserva, following the footsteps of his younger brother López de Haro Crianza, which surely will become one of the best-selling wines next year. Hacienda López de Haro Gran Reserva is made from a coupage of Tempranillo and Graciano varieties. The grapes come from old vines in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a town with a great wine tradition at the foothill of the Sierra Cantabria. The estates are located on terraces beside the River Ebro. They have poor soils which shows a low production but high quality grapes. The harvest is done manually and the grapes are transferred to the winery in small trailers. The fermentation is performed in tanks of 30,000 kg at a controlled temperature of 28 ° C. After the fermentation, the grapes are macerated for 2 weeks. Hacienda López de Haro Gran Reserva undergoes an aging in French and American oak barrels for over 30 months. Quarterly racking is applied. After the barrel aging, the wine rests in the bottle for at least three years before going to market. Learn More

    EL COTO Rioja Reserva Coto Imaz

    $34.94

    Coto de Imaz Reserva is a red wine from DO Rioja, it is a varietal Tempranillo. It is produced by the winery El Coto de Rioja, one of the best known Spanish wineries, whose production dates back to 1970. Coto de Imaz Reserva is a classic wine from La Rioja. Their vineyards are located in Rioja Alta, in the town el Cenicero, where clay-limestone soil predominates. The climate is continental with Mediterranean influences, extreme temperatures and few hours of sunshine. This type of soil and climate favours the subsequent aging of wine as it provides a very good acidity and grape extract. Once the harvest and selection of grapes is complete, Coto de Imaz Reserva undergoes alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. It is later macerated for 18 days with frequent pumping to find a balance between fruit and extraction. It finally spends 17 months aging in American oak barrels of 225 litres. It then ages in bottle 3½ years before going to market. In addition to good ratings it has received, Coto de Imaz Reserva was honoured in 2014 with a gold medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
