Not only have Spain and Germany bestowed upon us the gift of paella and bratwurst, we now have Figuero and Fritz Haag to be thankful for! Hailing from Ribera del Duero, Figuero has now become a household name to Tempranillo fans. Known for its prestigious grapes (even cult-following Vega Sicilia used to buy from them), Figuero produces wines of flavour, strength and longevity. This year, the esteemed Wine Enthusiasts has ranked Figuero 2016 Crianza 12 at #46 (and at 93 points) on their Top Wine List! What a momentous occasion for them! Fleshy and full, the Figuero 12 oozes of cassis, blackberry, coffee and chocolate goodness.
Equally delicious and near cult-following is the Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Auslese Grosse Lage 2017 from Fritz Haag, Mosel. Amazingly ranked #9 on the same highly-acclaimed Top 100 list at 97 points! Aromas of ripe pineapple and blossom perfume layered with sweet honey and stone-fruit flavours. Fresh now with huge potential of complexity to come, great for cellaring!
We suggest that you get your hands on these beauties before the word gets out!
