Winemaker Notes

80% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 10% Garnacha, fermented with the natural yeast and aged nearly two years in fine grained new French oak. Manually harvested from estate vineyards over 40 years of age in the Rioja Alta villages of Uruñuela, Cenicero and San Asensio.

The Wine Advocate

The purple-colored 2007 Soros 80/10/10 is a modern style of Rioja with savory, spicy black fruits, a bit of complexity and enough structure to evolve for another 1-2 years. This nicely proportioned, well-priced offering will continue to provide pleasure through 2019.

Bodegas Martinez Corta
Bodegas y Viñedos Martínez-Corta was born with the effort and work of a family devoted to the world of wine for four generations.

The wines come from 70ha of vineyards they have been cultivating along several generations. These vineyards are located in La Rioja Alta, so their wines are produced from their own vineyards.

Both the design of the winery and the engineering of the winemaking process work together so as to produce high quality wines.

A picturesque Mediterranean nation with a rich wine culture dating back to ancient times, Greece has so much more to offer than just retsina. Between the mainland and the country’s many islands, a wealth of wine styles exist, made mostly from Greece’s plentiful indigenous varieties. Still suffering for centuries after Ottoman rule, the modern wine industry did not truly begin here until the late 20th century, after a mass influx of newly trained winemakers and investments in winemaking technology. The climate—generally hot Mediterranean—can vary a bit with latitude and elevation, and is often moderated by cool maritime breezes. Drought can be an issue during the long, dry summers, often necessitating irrigation.

Over 300 indigenous grapes have been identified throughout Greece, and though not all of them are suitable for wine production, future decades will likely see a significant revival of many of these native varieties. Assyrtiko, the crisp, saline variety of the island of Santorini, is one of the most important and popular white varieties, alongside Roditis, Robola, Moschofilero, and Malagousia. Muscat is also widely grown for both sweet and dry wines. Prominent red varieties include soft and fruity Agiorghitiko, native to Nemea; Macedonia’s savory, tannic Xinomavro; and Mavrodaphne, used commonly to produce a Port-like fortified wine in the Peloponnese.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
