Selectus Wines April-June 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.

return to the origins ...

VOLVIENDO A LOS ORÍGENES… Everything in life has its origin. We can discuss and debate the big ones... the origin of the universe, the origin of humanity, the origin of medicine ... or we can take a look at the origin of things that are of particular interest to us, such as the origin of viticulture, the origin of a winery, and so on… It’s time to sit back and enjoy... Es el momento de relajarse y disfrutar... “Origins” then is broadly the theme of this latest issue of Selectus Wines. We talk about them in an article on Llopart, one of the oldest cava companies in the industry – a Llopert family ancestor started growing their vines many centuries ago. We also report on how another old, traditional wine company, Bodegas Torres,…

ried loibenberg smaragd 2012

ACADEMIC WINES It is a fine line that separates success from failure. In a valley in the heart of the Old Continent, one family’s extraordinary success has been based on producing wines using grapes at extreme maturity, with a savoir-faire derived from centuries of acquired knowledge. Wachau, one of the oldest wine regions of Austria, has records of vineyards dating back 1,500 years. This 30 km valley in the northeastern part of the country is home to two grape varieties, the Riesling and the Grüner Veltliner. The latter is a varietal with fabulous acidity that enables the creation of versatile wines, revealing all the nuances of Austrian tradition and culture. The Knoll family, one of the world’s “great wine families”, has been working a number of vineyard plots alongside the wandering Danube River,…

deep roots in the penedés

PROFUNDAS RAICES EN EL PENEDÉS Considerados pioneros en la elaboración de vinos espumosos de alta calidad, ya son 25 las generaciones dedicadas en cuerpo y alma al cuidado de la viña. El lema de la bodega “Ex Vite Vita” (De la viña viene la vida) es toda una declaración de su filosofía. Llopart is the second oldest wine and cava producer in the industry. Its history dates back to the 14th century, when Bernadus Leopardi (remember that name), an ancestor of the Llopart family, received the grant of some vineyards currently located in the Heretat de Can Llopart, in the municipality of Subirats (Barcelona). There is a document testifying to this grant written in Latin and dating from 1385. The different generations of the Llopart family that followed combined wine growing with the…

borderline wines

VINOS FRONTERIZOS Blancos elaborados como tintos, rosados tenues como blancos, tintos tan ligeros como rosados, finos sin encabezar... Día a día son más los vinos que se sitúan en un terreno ambiguo, a medio camino entre una tipología y otra. The colourful world of wine offers us many more nuances than those established by its rigid traditional typology. Although it would not appear easy to break away from the typecasting which states that red wines are red, pink or salmon-coloured wines are rosés, and those with golden and yellowish tones, white (a colour distinction reflected by the different production methods), there is, in fact, a rare breed of ambiguous wines, which is becoming more common and daring to challenge this rigid traditional classification. Unique, personal, sometimes bizarre, often impossible to forget, these borderline…

the recovery of a grape

RECUPERANDO LOS ORÍGENES De un tiempo hacia aquí, parece que se ha puesto “de moda” recuperar variedades de uva que se daban por extinguidas y que, obviamente, no se estaban utilizando en los vinos que elaboran las bodegas en las últimas décadas. Son diversas las que han apostado por estos proyectos de investigación y recuperación de las mismas, pero nos centraremos en una de las pioneras en esta “vuelta a los orígenes”: Familia Torres. In the 1980s, the current chairman of Torres and fourth-generation family member, Miguel A. Torres, got wind of a theory held by a professor at the University of Montpellier, Professor Boubals. Boubals believed that, despite the devastation caused by the phylloxera infestation, it might be possible to find old surviving vines of varietals thought to be practically extinct. To…
