The Cup & Rings Albariño Sobre Lias, Rias Baixas 2016

White Wine from Spain
An innovative take on Spain’s now famous white grape albariño. The innovation is in the winemaking whereby the wine has been left ageing on its lees (“lias”) for over three years. This retains freshness and vitality in the wine whilst adding a bready complexity to the flavour and a softness of texture which is the result of bottle age.

El Escocés Volante

Literally translated as ‘the flying Scotsman’, El Escocés Volante is the brainchild of Spanish resident and Scottish winemaker Norrel Robertson MW. He learned working from the cellar up, including placements in Chianti, Portugal, Australia, France and Chile, eventually completing a postgraduate viticulture and oenology course at Lincoln University in Christchurch, New Zealand, graduating with distinction.

Norrel produces wines from across some of Spain's more obscure wine regions: his speciality is garnacha, in particular from Calatayud, but he also makes excellent wines in Galicia, Murcia and Andalucía.
