Wine of the Week #1544: 2004 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904

Spot Offer #118: 2012 Clos Mogador
It’s hard to come up with superlatives to describe Clos Mogador which haven’t already been used. There is something so seemingly mythical and lyrical – even poetic – about this iconic Spanish winery; a project driven by an abundant and authentic love of wine, family and history. An hour or so north of Barcelona we come upon one of the most scenic and magical wine regions I’ve ever had the privilege to visit.
Wine of the Week #1541: Emilio Lustau Rare Amontillado “Escuadrilla”
93/100 Points: “How lovely. Amber-coloured and silky, this is technically dry but with a faint trace of sweetness. Imagine toasted hazelnuts, caramel and orange peel energized by a salty tang, with a long, harmonious finish.” (Beppi Crosariol / Globe & Mail)
Wine of the Week #1537: Bodegas Tierra Hermosa Tempranillo “Neblerío”
93/100 Points: “Red fruits dominate the palate, underpinned by richer black fruits, a touch of blackberry and black cherry. There is a lot happening on the finish – juniper, some walnut and lots of black and red cherry.” (Derek Smedley, MW – International Wine Challenge)
