前陣子, 好朋友C拿了兩款西班牙葡萄酒來找我話家常, 因為時間緣故, 匆匆忙忙試了兩口, 並沒有太多特別的感覺, 就將塞子塞起來. 放在家裡廚房的角落. 這 樣過了五天, 我才驚覺這兩款酒的存在~~ 抱持著姑且一試與滴滴皆辛苦的想法, 帶到朋友家隨意喝喝. 沒想到, 真是令人喜出望外的好喝極了(都是酸甜平衡勻稱, 單寧適中且乾淨明亮的酒款)!! 查了資料, 發現兩款酒都是R.Parker給了91分的優秀酒款, 而且, 重點是, 價格優!
1. 10 Allegro Con Spirito, Enebral @NT$750
The 2010 Enebral is mellower than the primal 2011 with macerated dark cherries, orange sorbet and blueberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins. It tightens up considerably towards the pointed finish, suggesting that it deserves two or three years in bottle.
Monte Hiniesta is a joint venture between Liberalia Enologica (see separate entry) and Allegro con Spirito, the latter under the aegis of Beatriz Fernandez, the daughter of Juan Antonio Fernandez. The vineyards were acquired between 1996 and 2000. These wines are very reasonably priced and represent consistent good quality.
2. 10 Bodega del Abad, Gotin del Risc Mencia @NT$750
The round, fresh 2010 Gotin del Risc Mencia shows more concentration and more stuffing than the 2011, but without being heavy. It has a good acid spine that keeps the freshness. Drink 2013-2018.
Bodega del Abad is a family winery created in 1999 and owned by Adriana Ulibarri. She owns 25 hectares of vineyards and controls a further 15 from suppliers. The work in their vineyards follows biodynamic principles. Only wild yeasts are used, and the style they are looking for with light extraction and soft tannins is for wines on the elegant side. They have two different lines of wines, the Gotin del Risc line coming from higher altitude vineyards and looking for red rather than black fruit aromas, and Abad Dom Bueno and Carracedo from riper fruit coming from lower altitude and warmer vineyards. They produce a total of 270,000 bottles per year. Miguel Tienda, a native of Cordoba in Andalucia, born in a village called Dona Mencia (was he predestined to work in Bierzo?) is the winemaker here.
3. 12 Bodega Volver, Volver @NT$800
From holdings in La Mancha, the 2011 Volver (100% Tempranillo that spent 18 months in new French oak prior to being bottled unfiltered) is a 2,000-case cuvee that comes from a single vineyard. Abundant notes of acacia flowers intermixed with black currants and blackberries are offered in a flavorful, medium-bodied, slightly spicy format. A nicely textured mouthfeel, sweet tannin and a long finish suggest this stunning value will drink well for 3-4 years. Wines such as this normally sell for $30-$50 a bottle.....
