conditions both in respect to control and handling, with high-tech facilities
that are well insulated and free of all micro-organisms.
Alcanta Blanco Merseguera/Macabeo 2008 (750mL)
Macabeo is mostly planted in Spain's northern regions, in the Mediterranean
coastal region of Alicante the profile is slightly more floral in
character with fine breadth and medium richness with low acidity
and an almost saline character on the finish. Therefore, it makes
perfect sense to pair the Macabeo with the Merseguera grape, which
gives good acidity but by itself it does not lend too much flavor.
You'll find a clean, almost saline-quality, delicate green apple
scents that lead to crisp and bright flavors of lime flesh, green
apple, and mineral with a refreshing finish. This will be perfect
with tapas like olives, salted almonds, mussels and even anchovies.
Tempranillo 2007 (750mL)
A medium-weight Tempranillo with good clean, bright red fruit showing
aromas of cherry, plum, faint notes of black pepper and a touch of earthiness.
This is a great everyday red that is not over manipulated, well-restrained
and balanced. The texture is satisfying with a pleasant framework of
tannins. It shows no signs of heat (alcohol) on the finish; instead,
it has an uplifting acidity that brightens the wine.
Nature Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (750mL)
The wine shows a lovely fullness with a natural bouquet, clean aromas,
with hints of wild thyme, basil, together with a touch of sage which
expresses the nature of Alicante. Laudum Cabernet Sauvignon is a
young organic red wine with a powerful aroma of red currants and
raspberries mixed with dark, and spices notes. Located in the southern
part of Spain due south of Valencia where the soil most limestone
with small amounts of clay and alluvial material.
Nature Petit Verdot 2006 (750mL)
The grape really has made itself at home in southern Spain, showing
big fruit, warmth, power, structure and complexity on the finish. Laudum
is Bodegas Bocopa’s top-quality range. The wine is made from grapes
that come from traditional grown vines of 20+ years old with very low
yields. A wine that is almost black in color with intense notes of prunes,
licorice, smoke, leather and blackberries mixed with notes of wild herbs
