“Wines the Way They Ought to Taste”
“What makes the world of wine so interesting, compelling and even romantic is the diversity of vineyards, grapes, producers and wines, not homogeneity or sameness.”
Eugenio Merino of Bodegas Crescencia Merino in the family vineyards in Corcos del Valle (Valladolid)
that he works so hard to tend, allowing him to produce one of the truly great rosados of Cigales.
And we discourage barrel fermentation in new oak and aging wines in improperly prepared new oak, either French or American, all of which tend to obscure both the taste of the grape variety and any terruño (terroir), or unique sense of place, that a wine may possess.
We believe that wines subjected to the harshness of too much improperly conditioned new oak
taste more like a the product of a saw mill than of a vineyard. Photo: Gerry Dawes©2009 / firstname.lastname@example.org
