Sierra de Toloño - Smagekasse topvine

Vi har fået fingrene i de absolut sidste flasker fra bl.a. 2019-årgangen af Sandra Bravos topvine Nahikun, Tereseno og Santa Cruz (har aldrig været solgt her før). Og tilmed hendes top-hvidvin, Nahikun Blanco.

Vinene har fået mellem 93 og 96 Tim Atkin point. De smager fantastisk, og er produceret i så begrænset omfang, at det er vanskeligt at komme i nærheden af. De sidste gange vi har tilbudt nogle af topvinene, har de været udsolgt på meget kort tid. 

Kombineret med den nye 2019-årgang af Raposo og all-time favoritten Garnacha Altura, er det et uhyre stærkt felt af vine i vores til dato bedste smagekasser. Det er "Det nye Spanien" på flaske i yderste potens. 

Kassen indeholder (læs Tim Atkin anmeldelser herunder): 

  • Raposo 2019: Raposo comes from two vineyards in Villabuena de Álava and is a  classic field blend of Tempranillo with a little Graciano, Garnacha and white grapes. Sappy, tangy and focused, with crunchy black cherry and bramble fruit and a chalky undertone. Wonderfully energetic. (Tim Atkin)

  • Teresono 2019: Formerly known as La Dula, this is named after the inhabitants of Rivas de Tereso, where this 1944 parcel is located. Aged in an amphora for a year, with no wood whatsoever, it's a Mediterranean herb-scented Garnacha with subtle reduction, a hint of eucalyptus and tangy, energetic red berry flavours

  • Santa Cruz 2019: Camino de Santa Cruz hails from a single parcel of Tempranillo in Rivas de Tereso. Fermented in clay amphoras before ageing in 500-litre barrels, it's one of the firmer reds in Sandra Bravo's range, showing plenty of colour, savoury tannins, subtle wood and black cherry and pomegranate fruit.

  • Nahikun Tempranillo 2019: Sandra Bravo's top red is an assemblage of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo from five very old vine parcels in Villabuena de Álava. Floral, juicy yet well structured, with serious  tannins, chiselled, almost austere acidity, lots of energy and focus and sweet red berry, plum and redcurrant fruit.

  • Nahikun Blanco 2021: Nahikun is a wonderfully complex white field blend of Viura, Malvasía Blanca, Calagraño and Rojal. Subtly wooded in 500-litre barrels, it's a white-Rioja-meets-Burgundy white, with citrus and almond notes, stony acidity and top notes of beeswax and wild herbs (om 2019-årgangen)

  • Garnacha Altura 2021: Still ludicrously under-priced for the quality of the wine, this is a stunning high-altitude Garnacha from 80-year-old vines in Rivas de Tereso. Focused, tangy and refreshing, with very little oak influence, graceful red berry fruit, subtle minerality and understated concentration
