Selectus Wines October - December 2017

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.

bodegas roda celebrates its 30 th anniversary with a very special tasting

BODEGAS RODA CELEBRA SU 30 ANIVERSARIO CON UNA CATA MUY ESPECIAL In mid-September, a special tasting took place at the Fundació Foto Colectania in Barcelona to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the creation of Bodegas Roda. We were among around a hundred guests invited to a “tasting of pairs” of some very special vintages of its RODA I wine. These pairs were the best vintages of each decade: 1994-1995, 2004-2005 and 2010-2011 (the latter has not yet been released on the market). We also had the chance to taste Corimbo I 2011, which allowed us to compare a vintage from the Rioja with the same vintage from the Ribera de Duero. Mario Rotllant (co-owner) and Agustín Santolaya (General Manager) hosted this relaxed event and took us on a tasting journey through the winery’s…

chivite las fincas 2016 rosé wine

Two greats, Arzak and Chivite, have joined forces in a different kind of venture, but with a style of wine that pleases consumers. A style of wine that gives the impression of softness at first, but then shows its character, liveliness body and intensity. This pale rosé, now a very popular colour, suggests subtlety and delicacy, but gradually shows its strength. Versatile, sophisticated and original, this wine is not what it seems and is bound to produce a reaction. Appearance: Very pale pink salmon, clean and bright, dense tears. Nose: Medium intensity, aromas of white flowers and the recognizable scent of roses or talcum powder, along with notes of delicate raspberry-like fruit. Palate: Fresh on entry, thanks to its nice acidity, revealing a light body, delicate, soft fruit and a nice full finish.…
