Selectus Wines October - December 2018

Special places of unique beauty. Gorgeous, well-designed objects that strike the eye. Lands and seas that offer us their good, honest produce. There are those who know how to find these places, appreciate these objects, and enjoy this bounty of the land and sea. Selectus Wines is aimed at these people and the establishments they frequent. Uniqueness, beauty, distinction, finesse and well-being can also be expressed through wine and the vineyards they hail from. We seek out, select and describe these wines for the enjoyment of these discerning consumers. Lugares con belleza singular, que son especiales. Objetos que destacan por su capacidad de atracción y por su diseño, que son llamativos. Tierras y campos, mares y océanos que ofrecen sus más sinceros y honestos productos. Personas que saben encontrar esos lugares, que saben llevar esos objetos, que saben apreciar esas vituallas. Para todos ellos y para los lugares en los que se sienten cómodos, se escribe Selectuswines. La singularidad, la belleza, la distinción, la finura, el bienestar pueden, también, expresarse a través de los vinos y sus parajes. Los descubrimos, los seleccionamos, los bebemos y los describimos para que la gente con sensibilidad los pueda disfrutar.

SELECTUS WINES BEST PROMOTION OF WINES 2018 First of all, I apologize for the slight delay in the appearance of this latest issue, but there’s a very good reason for it. This time last year, when I was writing my editorial, we had just received the exciting news that we had been nominated for the “Best Wine Publication in Spain” Award, part of the International Wine Challenge Merchant Awards, for the first time. This year, I had to quickly rewrite my editorial as we actually picked up this coveted award! We are delighted to receive this recognition, which we regard as both an honour and a responsibility. However, celebrations will have to wait, as our day-to-day work requires us to push on as usual, now with the challenge of maintaining our usual…

AUTHENTIC WINES, ETERNAL WINES Australia is one of those eternally curious countries with an unquenchable thirst to learn from others, using the knowledge gained to forge its own path, its future through the language of wine glasses. A good example of this can be found in the south, where the Barossa Valley is home to the oldest vineyards in the country. In this land protected from phylloxera, the Syrah or Shiraz (as they call it here) vineyards are 150 years old, and a vast amount of knowledge has been accumulated in their roots, which run deeper here than they do in most other parts of the world. Although it is not a volume wine producer, Australia is still the world’s fifth-largest wine exporter. It started by trying to mimic Europe, but like…

where it all began

AQUÍ EMPEZÓ TODO Con más de 150 años de historia dedicados a la pasión por el cultivo y elaboración del vino, esta bodega situada en Oyón (Álava, España), es el bastión principal de uno de los grupos bodegueros más importantes a nivel mundial, el Grupo Faustino. The fourth generation of the family now manages this wine company in the D.O.Ca. Rioja and its wineries located in 4 other denominations of origin across Spain.

LA EVOLUCIÓN HACIA LA AGRICULTURA BIODINÁMICA: EL EJEMPLO DE BODEGAS GRAMONA “Leaving the best possible legacy for the generations to come is one of the Gramona family’s most cherished principles, along with striving to make the finest of wines and cavas.

purgatori, the torres family’s new winery

LA NUEVA BODEGA DE LA FAMILIA TORRES En el corazón de Les Garrigues, provincia de Lérida (España), en la masía Mas de l´Aranyó, allí donde en el siglo XVIII los monjes de Montserrat habitaron y elaboraron vinos, la Familia Torres ha terminado la construcción de su bodega en la D.O. Costers del Segre. The Torres family arrived in this area with a long winemaking tradition almost 20 years ago when it purchased a 870-hectare estate. It currently has 200 hectares of organically certified vineyards planted on three different levels, from 350 to 550 metres altitude. The estate was baptized Purgatori (purgatory), in reference to the tough life endured by those monks who had been sent to work in this region, far away from their monastery in Montserrat, probably as a penance. The winery is…
