An Iberian adventure

This week we hosted a second focus tasting in our new offices, this time concentrating on the wines of Spain and Portugal. Organised as a self pour tasting where customers could go round in their own time, they also enjoyed an Iberian-themed lunch with home-made tortillas, Spanish meats and cheeses and the Portuguese pastry ‘pasteis de nata’. With several new additions to our Spanish and Portuguese portfolio, this was a fitting time to showcase our entire range of wines from the peninsula. A standout for many was the new red wine from Sedella which is made from the rediscovered Rome variety at their state-of-the-art mountain winery in the Sierras de Málaga DO.  Coming just before the busy festive season it was also the perfect time for our team and customers to taste the Valdespino sherries, Infantado and Romaneira ports and newly-added Madeiras from Justino‘s. With styles ranging from the delicate and aromatic Verdejo via ripe and concentrated Rioja to the sweet, tawny ports, there really was something for everyone‘s Christmas wine list.
