One service that motivates us to give our clients is e-bodega.

From e-masovers and the hand of Dominique Abernethy (founder and organizer of the exhibition Arrels del Vi of Sant Martí d’Empúries), we want to recommend the best wines D.O. Emporda to enjoy at home.

Here we share the first recommendation of Dom:

summer selection 2014

Celler Hugas de Batlle

The family estate where they grow the vines is located between the road of Portbou and Cala Rovellada of Colera and it has a great influence of the Mediterranean Sea as it is only 150 meters from the beach.

The terraces of dry stone and slate as well as climate marked by the wind, are intrinsic characteristics of the town of Colera that also mark clearly the personality of these wines.

Replanting which began the commercialization of their wines are made in 2008 and really stand out 4.000 vines of Syrah and 6.000 of White Garnacha that surround the winery itself.

My choice this summer:

White: 30/70, 201330.70 Hugas de Batlle

A wine profile modern fruity without being sweet but; can be enjoyed with or without food, but yes, very cold.

30% Muscatel of Alexandria

70% White Garnacha

Perfumed nose subtly reminiscent of peaches, apricots and honey aroma of Muscat on a background of white flowers and herbs typical of White Garnacha. Wide mouth who knows heal the freshness and intensity of nerve to combine just about any type of cuisine summer. Delicacy of Garnacha, Muscatel fragrance and freshness and persistence of the whole.

Black: Coma Fredosa, 2010coma fredosa hugas de batlle

 

This wine has a lot of personality and is one of my favorite black of Empordà. It is highly recommended to enjoy it 14º.

63% Cabernet Sauvignon

33% Garnacha

Deep red and blue outline, dark as befits the Cabernet. From Garnacha emphasises the wine its perfume and fruitiness on the nose; memories of strawberry and strawberry jam, aroma of eternal youth in a wine which is clear slate minerality, elegance and honesty. Soft mouth, but consistent. Deep, although light.

Wine tourism

At the celler Hugas de Batlle offers tastings different from 7€ per person. It seems to me very interesting vertical tasting of Coma Fredosa (12 € / person).
