UK launch for spanish wines from the Viñedos Singulares Project
Manchester-based importer Morgenrot has added to its range of Spanish wines with the launch of two classic Spanish whites from the Viñedos Singulares Project.
Joining the Morgenrot portfolio is Afortunado (Lucky), a fruity and crisp Vedejo from Rueda, and Luna Creciente (Crescent Moon), a balanced Albarino from Rias Biaxas.
Afortunado is produced from extremely old vineyards, some of them existing for a century, at an altitude of 900m. The wine has impact, with aromas of tropical fruit, aniseed and new-mown hay and a long and enveloping aftertaste.
Luna Creciente is made using a traditional method to maintain the Albariño character. Whilst leaving a delicious sensation in the mouth, overall it offers softness, elegance and freshness on both the nose and palate.
After years of visiting countless wine-producing regions and producing and marketing wines, the Barrero brothers – Luis and Carlos – created the Viñedos Singulares (Singular Wines) project in 2008.
Through a careful selection of the main grape varieties from specially chosen Spanish regions, the brothers produce different wines in collaboration with wineries and winemakers. This ensures each wine under the label retains the character of both the terroir and winemaker.
John Critchley, commercial director at Morgenrot, comments: “We are delighted to launch the Viñedos Singulares Project wines into the UK. With the project’s strong following amongst some of Barcelona’s top restaurants, the wine’s great quality and fantastic packaging, we’re confident the range will be a big hit this year. As consumers continue to experience, search out and discover the intricacies between the Spanish regions, their cuisine and drinks, it’s a fantastic time to be launching this discovery label.”
