2014 Priorat Blanc, "Joan Gine" (Buil & Gine)

Buil & Gine, Priorat "Joan Gine", Priorat, Spain, 2014

40% Garnacha Blanca, 36% Macabeo, 20% Viognier, 4% Pedro Ximenez

RIPE MELON & GARDENIAS, UNCTUOUS & FRESH

Wine is like a grandfather in many ways. We all think ours is the best. In this case, we're right. As unyielding and characterful as our grandfathers tend to be, the Joan Giné is named for the winemaker's grandfather. The rationale was probably more endearing, but it is a timely personification of the poor, slate/quartz soils of Priorat that fetch the region its fame and fortune. After Xavi's vines have sifted through these soils, the juice then wises up for 8 months in new French oak barrels. It's fleshy and juicy with mature layers of tropical fruits, white flowers, and stack stone minerality.

Serving Suggestion: Lobster rolls in the tradition of Maine. Lemon risotto with or without pan-seared scallops and garnished with arugula pesto. Almond-vanilla rice pudding.

Vermut "Priorat Natur" (Buil & Gine)

Buil & Gine, Vermut "Priorat Natur", Vermut, Spain, NV

Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez, Garnacha Blanca

CARAMELIZED HAZELNUT, GENTLE BITTERNESS, SWEET SPICES

Due to its high average temperatures, Priorat is mostly known for its powerful red wines. As our friend Andoni says, “Making good white wine in Priorat is like trying to grow a flower in hell.” Whoa. Luckily, the winemakers of Buil & Gine have succeeded not only in producing incredible white wine, but have also done something special with this delicate, nuanced vermouth. Macabeo, Pedro Ximenez, and Garnacha Blanca are vinified with skin contact, then aromatized with cumin, rosemary, fennel, and vanilla. The base vermouth is aged solera-style for a minimum of two years, then blended with older vermouths for an unparalleled depth of flavor.

Serving Suggestion: Serve chilled alongside Manchego, Marcona almonds, and thinly shaved country ham. Also excellent in a Manhattan!
