Wine
Albariño, “Abadía de San Campio”, Bodegas Terras Gauda, Rías Baixas, SP, 2019

Tasting Notes: Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points – Described by winemaker Emilio Canas as being ‘appetizing and lively on the palate,’ citric notes are infused with delicate aromas of tropical fruit and freshly-cut green apple. Perfectly integrated acidity, creamy, fruit-forward notes brought upon by sur lees aging, will make the perfect accompaniment for spicy dishes and seafood.

Garnacha "Tres Picos", Borsao, Campo de Borja, ES, 2017

Tasting Notes:  Wine Enthusiast, 84 Points – Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
