  • Bodegas Alion 2004 NZD $159.95
    "Bodegas Alion was started by the renowned estate of Vega Sicilia in 1991. Grapes are sourced from vineyards next to the winery and from Vega Sicilia's own vineyards at Valbuena. Eighteen hectares of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) form the actual Alion estate. The 2004 Alion is inky purple-colored with an alluring perfume of toasty oak, lavender, violets, mineral, blackberry, and blueberry compote. This is followed by a full-bodied, rich, opulent, wine with incipient complexity, and notes of licorice, mocha, and espresso emerging on the palate. The lengthy finish is pure and persistent. Give it 3-5 years in the cellar and drink it through 2025." Robert Parker 96/100... more »

  • El Puntido Gran Reserva 2005 NZD $94.95 NZD $79.95
    Ahh ha! How can we put this? Let’s say outstanding, brilliant and magnificent, El Puntido which was established in 1863, they have well over a century of producing wines of pedigree and outstanding quality. Very full bodied and made from Tempranillo and Graciano with a huge middle palate, great intensity, clarity and focus. Very young even though it is a 2005 but it is already starting to show lovely flavours of saffron, grilled chorizo with a freshness of spring flowers and dry herbs. This will be one of the best value for money wines that we’ve ever had, and we’ve had a few!

  • Marques de Riscal Reserva 2011 NZD $54.95 NZD $49.95
    One of the legends of Rioja and one of the oldest Bodegas founded in 1860. Also one of the great pioneers of blending the local Tempranillo to other French varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Marqués de Riscal epitomizes Rioja as being classical, elegant and timeless. Being a Reserva, by law, has to spend 2 years in oak followed by 1 year in bottle before release making it quite approachable and drinkable on release as one of the key demands of the Spanish market. The 2011 vintage is a superb year compromising a late hot Autumn with a very dry and warm Summer. Beautiful brick red in colour with a perfume of tobacco, cigar box, leather and roasted chestnuts followed by a full bodied palate of oak, vanilla and liquorice. Good purity, finesse and balance with outstanding complexity, depth and structure. Drink now or cellar for 5 years plus. ... more »
  • Numanthia 2005 NZD $136.95
    Yet again we find that Spain is delivering unmatched value for money wines, their different regions are like a boiler room of ideas, innovation and creativity. In the last few years this particular Bodegas has been creating wines that are rated internationally alongside and higher than the very top Bordeaux and Burgundy yet at a fraction of the price. Made from 100 year old ungrafted vines planted at high altitude and yielding less than 1.5 tonne of fruit per acre. The wine was aged in new French oak for 18 months and bottled without fining or filtration. This comes from the area of Toro which is one of the upcoming areas in Spain. It is without doubt a revelation when it comes to the production of modern Spanish wine. The wine is concentrated, lean and focused with impeccable pedigree and definition. The quality ratio of this wine is unsurpassed, easily on par with any second growth from Bordeaux at roughly half of the price. The reviews speak for themselves. Will cellar for 10 years plus.... more »
