La Locomotora- Tempranillo 750ml
Locomotora is another joint project between Miguel Angel de Gregorio of the respected Finca Allende and Quim Villa, owner of Villa Vineteca. The original idea was to source the best fruit from single vineyard sites (Pagos) selected for their quality of terroir and age of vines. Originally the grapes were bought in but, the vineyards were subsequently purchased to ensure continuity and integrity. Vinification, bottling and ageing then takes place at Finca Allende. The result is that very pure, elegant and unique wines are produced.
Miguel is a famous winemaker known as the "genius of red wine". Being the director of various projects including Paisajes, he has been delivering superb red wines to all wine lovers. For this Locomotora project, tempranillo is used to produce their wines. It is rich in savoury and low in acidity, which makes the wine easy drinking and suitable for everyone. In addition, it pairs very well with spicy food so it is a very good wine for Asian cuisines like Thai, Korean, Sichuan, etc.

"There's no 2012, so I tasted the 2013 I'Aire Brut Nature, a blend of 45% Macabeo, 30% Xarello, 20% Parellada and 5% Chardonnay that matured in bottle after the second fermentation for some 40 months. It's clean, fresh and quite subtle, with shy notes of fennel, something lemony and a very faint effect from the lees. The palate feels sharp, with good acidity and a tasty finish. The wines do not carry disgorgement info yet. 12,000 bottles."
