The stars of the month: Single-varietal wines

Wine trends are changing. Now, we want to know more about the history and production, the winery and the winemaking, the vineyards’ location and, of course, about the grape varieties. We are less brand-loyal than ever before and enjoy experimenting across styles. As trend seekers and winelovers we couldn’t miss the opportunity to show you some of our single-varietal collections.

Current varietals leading with consumers include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, followed by Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

A single-varietal wine (monovarietal) is made from a single grape varietal, as the name suggests. Lately some of the most important wineries have decided to focus their attention on the grape variety. This has led to consider it even more important than the Appellation of Origin or the Region where the grapes come from.

Monasterio de Palazuelos Sauvignon Blanc

This wine’s complex and highly varietal perfume is a delight for the senses. The Merlot appears in a cherry red colour with purple hues and has a structured, sweet and fruity mouth. It brings a sweet flavour consisting of blackberries, mixed with a liquorice and violet aroma. It is a perfect companion for meats. To be served at 15 to 18°C.

Last week the 31st Salón de Gourmets took place in Madrid, the major European event of delicatessen products. It is catalogued as the largest annual showcase of high quality food and beverage products from the Agro-industry branch.

Corridors full of wines, fine charcuterie, cheese, pantry, sweets and snacks. Here you can watch a sneak-peek of our experience:

Inspired by all the wines that we had the opportunity to taste, this month we have included two new types of Campo Viejo, white and rosé. Two varieties of the top-seller foreign wine in the United Kingdom that has always been a part of our collection.
