Don Ginés Cónsul de La Vila 2020
This cava reflects the personality, passion, and pioneering spirit of Don Ginés Llorca, a man of the sea by family tradition and a passionate sportsman born in Villajoyosa, a small town bathed in the Mediterranean, who was nicknamed the Consul of La Vila for exporting the outgoing and festive character of this Alicante fishing village. Cava Don Ginés Cónsul de la Vila has a fruity taste with mineral shades, pleasant acidity, and a dry finish. The aroma is fresh and elegant with notes of green apple, pear, herbs, and minerals.
Finca Hontanillas 2020
This is the winery’s youngest wine. To make the wine, they use Tempranillo grapes from their vineyard. Planted on limestone soils and grown according to the principles and practices of organic farming; they produce grapes with intense bouquets each year. Then add grapes from other vineyards where the vines are grown according to conventional methods, planted in La Horra and Quintana del Pidio, two municipalities of long-standing winegrowing tradition. The must is fermented with its own, unique and personal yeast, selected and isolated at the vineyard around the winery since 2004.
According to Shukhrat Khakimov, CEO and Founder of WinexFood.
