El Montanista is a project from winemaker Pancho Bugallo. He has taken over old vineyards with an average age of over 80 years. In the past vineyards weren‚Äôt played with one single variety ‚Äì and here the wine is a blend of different varieties, co-planted together in the same vineyard giving a unique take on the region‚Äôs soils, climate, and old-vine heritage.
All in all, this is a unique place to grow grapes, and combined with the old vine heritage, this gives a unique and characterful wine. It reminds me of some of the alpine wines of Europe ‚Äì with hints of alpine flowers, lovely mineral freshness, notes of fresh herbs, and a touch of savoury character giving added complexity.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
