Spirals Graciano, Azul y Garanza, 2018
Spirals Graciano, Azul y Garanza, 2018, Azul y Garanza
Graciano, the grape variety, is often used as part of the blend in top-end Rioja. But here we get to see it what it can do on its own. It's soft, velvety and smooth with black fruit, smoke, and hints of spice all balanced by lots of freshness. A great all-rounder on the table, but perfect with a fatty cut of beef.
Spiral is a project from specialist wine importer, Modal Wines. We work closely with Modal as one of the leading suppliers of authentic, natural wine in the UK. Each year they produce a Spirals wine in collaboration with a different winery, where 100% of the profits are donated to an organisation that they believe in. Here they have partnered with Azul y Garanza to produce a special Graciano from the 2018 vintage. The wine sees a 10 day maceration with the skins and was aged in concrete with no fining, filtration or additions.
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.
