Shanghai | Our Newest Organic Spanish Wines

By December 19, 2016 Blog, Events, Shanghai No Comments

We’ve just added two exciting new organic Spanish wines to our selection; the NorteSur Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon and NorteSur Chardonnay (each RMB 120).

The Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon blend is a fresh, slightly astringent and harmonious young red wine with a long finish and a bouquet of red berries and cherries. The Chardonnay, meanwhile, possesses exotic scents of pineapple and a full flavoured freshness and acidity on the palate.

They are products of Spanish winery Dominio de Punctum. Located in the town of Las Pedroñeras in the north of La Mancha (one of Spain’s most important wine regions), they are dedicated to creating singular, high-quality organic and biodynamic wines like these. Though the way they make wine is now called “organic”, to them it’s just tradition.

So what, in fact, is organic wine? Simply put, it is wine made with organically grown grapes. That means an approach that combines modern means of sustainable agriculture with traditions of Spanish wine that go back centures, before the likes of chemicals and mass production to winemaking, so common today, were introduced to winemaking.

Spain is in fact the world’s number one producer of organic wines, in large part thanks to its extremely favorable conditions; the conditions here are simply so ideal for making wine that all you need to do is let nature do it’s work. There’s little need to add anything in to help things along.

All this talk of organic awesomeness got you feeling thirsty? You’re in luck; we’ll be opening bottles of both of these delicious wines at our weekly tasting in Shanghai this week. See the flyer below for details.
