    MAGNUM - standard size bottle coming soon! What Alfredo Maestro likes most about the wine sector is that he never finishes learning. In his continuous travels through other countries he does not stop trying new things and discovering true wonders in areas that he never thought could make wines. Generic Albillo Mayor from the Douro Valley from a multitude of historic vineyards. The grapes remain in contact with their skins for 7 days, it does not do malolactic fermentation. Vibrant and full of love! They are located in several very old hawthorns at different altitudes (770-1000 m.), soil types (limestone, clay, etc.) and orientations. White without ageing 100% Albillo Mayor. The vines belong to different vineyards and clones planted from 1891 to 1910. Harvested the last week of September manually, destemmed and crushed. Maceration of 7 days with your own skins. It was fermented in stainless steel tanks of 2,000 litres with the native yeasts of the different vineyards of that particular year. No correction or input was made. The must avoided excessive oxidation. There is no malolactic fermentation taking advantage of the rigors of the Castilian winter that, after several months in the open, helps to have a clean and stabilised wine. However, during the life in the bottle, as is normal, precipitates may arise due to their natural elaboration. Try with sushi, baked sea bass, sea bream with salt, seafood in general, Caesar salad, cheeses that are not very intense or fatty!

    The wines of Dom Bliskowice, based in eastern Poland (between Krakow and Warsaw, same latitude as Dresden), are a great place to start. The owners Lech Mill and Maciej Sondij are Warsaw architects, who also have a restaurant and a wine importing business focused on artisanal wine. The first vine seedlings were planted in the fields of the villages of Bliskowice and Popów in the Annopol municipality in the spring of 2009. The pitches are located on the lofty slope of the Vistula valley, from where there is a picturesque view of the meandering river. This is the land of limestone hills: the Lesser Poland Gorge of the Vistula. The southwestern exposure provides optimal sunlight. The slope drains cold spring air. The limestone substrate maintains the right level of moisture in the soil, and the Great River below is like an air conditioner: in winter it relieves frosts and in summer it disperses hailstorms. The wine is from 8-year-old vines of Johanniter, a 1968 German hybrid with Riesling and another hybrid Freiburg 589-54 as parents. Fermentation was spontaneous with indigenous yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Two-week skin maceration. Six-month ageing on lees. The wine has herbaceous notes and earthy tannins, rosemary and vermut leaf aromas, tasty green apple and wonderful complexity. Addictive sweet-and-sour combo. The tongue-tickling 10g/l acidity is countered equally by 10g/l residual sugar. The initial concentrated honey and apple is reminiscent of Riesling. However, apricot notes come in mid-palate and adds more structure. The finish is light with lime entering after the heavier fruits. Fab with Hawaiian stone fired pizza, gammon and pineapple or good old kebab and chips!
  • John Worontschak is an Australian born and trained winemaker who came to England in the mid 1980’s after honing his craft in Australia, California and France. In 1988 at the Thames Valley Vineyard in Berkshire he established a contract winemaking company receiving grapes from all over the country and made award-winning wines of a uniquely outstanding quality. John was one of the pioneers in the making of quality English sparkling wines but it was English still wines that were his passion and he set out to make a world class premium English still wine.

    Virtually spring frost free, 2020 got off to a great start with moderate to good yields predicted. Prolonged rainy periods throughout the season gave rise to some difficulties with the best drained sites producing the highest quality wines.

    Modern white wines are generally pressed from their skins prior to fermentation. Orange wine is a term given to white wines that have been fermented and aged on their skins.

    2020 Litmus Orange is produced from the Bacchus grape variety which was fermented and remained for sixteen weeks on skins without sulphur dioxide before bottling in March 2021.

    Pale gold in colour the wine displays hazelnut, fennel and marzipan characters on the nose. The palate has a touch of white pepper spice, is incredibly generous and complex and boasts a long broad palate with a gripping astringency and smooth, long finish.

    Pair with curry dishes, Moroccan cuisine, Ethiopian cuisine (like those spongelike pancakes called Injera), Korean dishes with fermented kimchi (Bibimbap), and traditional Japanese cuisine, including fermented soybeans (Natto)
  • It was built in 1937, its main structure is used today to make their fine wines respecting tradition and making all fermented in concrete vats buried below ground level. The original cellar consists of a module of 6 pools of 6000 liters, 5 of 8000 and 4 of 19000. In turn, in its main basement, their wines rest before going on sale. From 2015, they recovered an old grinding machine from the past and began to use it for the elaboration of their wines given its minimal intervention in the process and doing the grinding by gravity on each pool. Beyond the constant innovation of the family, they preserve the artisanal and traditional processes in their wines. Orange wines are those fermented and aged with their skins for an Indeterminate time. The contact with the same wine modifies its flavours, structure, aromas and colour, achieving an atypical wine to those traditionally known of the same variety. Wine fermented and aged for 7 months, resulting in this fantastic liquid gold! Unfiltered. Great with goats' cheese with orange and pineapple fruit and ham pizza, lamb biryani with fragrant rice, baba ghanoush, grilled octopus, roast and/or caramelised veg, especially root vegetables like Jerusalem artichokes and celeriac. Also think of serving orange wine with a whole roast cauliflower or with caramelised endives. Nutty grains like farro, freekeh and bulgar (cracked wheat). It’s good with whole-wheat couscous too. Hard - and semi-hard - sheep cheese, so good with Manchego and similar hard sheep cheeses but also with grilled halloumi and a salty sheep cheese like feta!
  • Punctum is a young and dynamic Winery located in Pinto, Madrid. They use state of the art modern techniques alongside traditional farming practices to get the most from their vineyards. Certified organic and using biodynamic practices the family have a strong connection with the land they cultivate. They understand the importance of working with their environment and not against it. The Fernández family were grocers in Madrid when they decided to set this biodynamic estate up from scratch. Their objective was always to make accessible, easy to drink biodynamic wines and what they’ve achieved in 10 years is nothing short of impressive. High on a gently rolling plateau they built a purpose made winery cleverly laid out to facilitate collecting the grapes and making and storing the wine as efficiently as possible. This is a great introduction to a style of wine loved by so many. With 14 days skin contact, this is a lighter, fresher style of orange wine that still shows the delicate almond and orange pith of the style really well. Aromatic, full of flavours of blanched almond and cinnamon stick to a robust, bruised apple core. It sits beautifully alongside Manchego cheese or warm salads like hot-smoked salmon salad
