White Wine


Giró Ribot

Paul Cheneau “Lady of Spain” Cava, NV

Penedes, Spain


Giro Ribot Paul Cheneau "Lady of Spain" CavaGiró Ribot is Spain's most prominent family-owned and operated producer of Cava. The Giró Ribot portfolio encompasses two distinct brands: Cava Paul Cheneau and Cava Masia Parera.

The ancestors of the Ribot family, a noble lineage, are closely tied to the Penedès region over several generations of wine, Cava and spirit producers. This union has been key to the development of Paul Cheneau.

The Paul Cheneau line can be best described as elegant Spanish sparkling Cavas with French influence of styling. Paul Cheneau is classically traditional in the methods of production as well as in the grape varieties used.

Cava was first introduced in 1872 and, by the turn of the century, Cava was the wine of choice among the chic patrons of Barcelona’s elegant art nouveau cafes and Cava bars. As a tribute to the fashionable ladies who made Cava so popular, Paul Cheneau introduced the “Lady of Spain”.

The winery owns 100 hectares of vineyards of the indigenous Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada grapes, with which Cavas are produced.

The harvest is hand-picked in September/October. Wines destined for Cava will form part of the tirage mixture consisting of selected yeasts and sugar which, once in the bottle will generate second fermentation in strict accordance with the Traditional Method. The first fermentation is very slow and at low temperature in order to assist the generation of secondary aromas. It is only after a lengthy aging period that the disgorgement of Paul Cheneau will take place releasing its aromas and bouquet to full satisfaction.

This Cava is straw colored with greenish tints, steady effervescence, small bubbles and gentle crown. It shows a clean and elegant, fruity aroma with hints of toasted and yeasty background flavor, along with a touch of honey, almond and a trace of dried herbs. On the palate, it is appetizing, fruity, well structured, rich and mature. A slightly toasted background flavor with pleasant traces of lees finishes long and tasty!

Red Wine


2004 Leopard's Leap Shiraz

Western Cape Vineyards

Franschhoek, South Africa

 

2004 Leopard's Leap Shiraz

Named in honor of the magnificent Cape Mountain leopard, a symbol of pride and determination reflecting the natural heritage and beauty of the Cape, Leopard's Leap Shiraz is a typical South African example of this varietal, showing concentrated violet, black pepper and spiciness.

Well-structured with soft tannins and prominent dark fruits, it has a velvety, Old World Rhone-style elegance which will be enhanced by a few more years in the bottle.

The sleek and elegant palate makes it a great wine with fillet and other meat dishes.
