Sangria “La Fiesta”

By pablo,

Lafiesta_Sangria
As a spaniard living in the US i get asked alot about Sangria. Now I have finally found a great sangria out of the package that I can recommend. Not sure if they have if they have finally found an importer for the US. I am looking to find out.

I love the packaging, the great graphic design, fun and young. Also drop it in water with a bit of ice an it will be cold in no time.

I really like the taste. Is a bit sweet but that is ok. I would recommend to add some fruits, apple, peaches, orange, and serve it really cold. Really cold, Enjoy!!!

This is in their own words:
Description
Mediterranean refreshing drink, made with traditional wines of Tempranillo and Grenache with a selection of the finest natural extracts of citrus and tropical fruits. No reservatives or artificial coloring, 100% natural.
Taste Note
The wine has a very high robe and powerful structure. Its intense citrus fruit aromas are mixed with those of very ripe red fruit, with hints of orange blossom evoking spring. The hints of raspberry and crystallized orange suggest a fresh, sweet and fruity drink. It has a pleasant, slightly sweet attack, with an agreeable finish which highlights the acidity of the fruit with very well integrated fortified touches. Sangría “Lafiesta” is a enjoyable summer drink which cleverly mixes two jewels that are linked

Kairos Wines

By janey,

Kairos 2012

This is one of those wines I am very intrigued to try. A tinny winery of the size of a garage that has a 90points on the Peñin Guide. If the care they took on the design is any indication, this wine has to be a very nice one to try.

The level of their beautiful design and their attention to detail convine with the fact that the wines are produce in an traditional process makes this wine one of my next targets on my visits to Spain.

The design and brand talks about pride and humility, of tradition and style convine. I feel that this label could work very well for retailers that look for a high quality, low production, organic product. I wish there was a bit more detail on the personal history of the winemaker and his family. I think on a wine like this the story is half of the reason to try the wine and the website just give us a hint but lets us hungry for more.

The winery refer to it as a “garage wine”. Made in a small space in a small town with little machinery on a most natural process. The wine is made with Tempranillo grapes, one of the most common grapes in Spain.

I will follow up once I track it down and taste it.
