Winery: Tiza & El Ganador

The Tiza El Ganador Estate
These wines originate with a Spanish family based in Navarra. The grapes come from hand-harvested vineyards situated in Lujan de Cuyo. The winery uses a Marzola Basket Press, which has a solid reputation for quality. The press is hydraulic with an electric engine, and the plates are stainless steel with the bottom plate slanted to allow for maximum drainage. Basket walls are constructed of waterproofed wooden slats joined by stainless steel rings that can be switched out, allowing for continual filling and pressing. The computerized control panel can be programmed in various speeds and pressure, allowing the operator better control for extracting juice.  Tiza is a lot specially selected by the importer. 2,500 cases produced, 2,500 cases imported.

The Tiza El Ganador Vineyards
The 220 acres of vines are planted to Malbec (first vines date back to 1912). The vineyard is situated 1,000 meters above sea level and is planted on alluvial soils with subsoils made of stone and sandy/limestone sediments. The quality of the soil together with the high density of vines per hectare contribute to produce very low yields with excellent fruits.

Gaudrelle Monmousseau Clos le Vigneau Vouvray 2017

Clos le Vigneau Vouvray is made from 100% Chenin Blanc

The wine is off dry in style with honey, earth and apricot notes. Wines from the town of Vouvray have been known to age well for 40 years. This particular bottling should hold for at least 5-7 years. This Loire Valley white wine from France is perfect on a warm spring day.

Review:

"The 2017 Vouvray Clos Le Vigneau comes all from a single lieu-dit (Clos Le Vigneau) and is 100% Chenin Blanc brought up all in tank. This medium-bodied, rounded, off-dry white offers up beautiful notes of peach, honeyed apple, and citrus-like aromas and flavors. I love its purity, it has good acidity, and it’s a brilliant white that’s going to shine for at least 4-5 years, and I suspect much longer. There’s no need to delay gratification though."

Johann Michel Saint-Peray 2017

Made from 50% Marsanne and 50% Roussanne

Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc has a shining golden yellow color. 

The wine is aromatic with white flowers such as acacia and honeysuckle. In the mouth, you will find some lanolin flavors as well as apricot and yellow ripe peach.
The finish is long, delicate and balanced.
It is waxy and very White Burgundy like.

Average age of the vines is 15 years old. 

Johann Michel owns 0.5 hectare (1.24 acre) of Saint Peray.

 

All planted on Granitic soil, with some schist vein. Aromatic with white flowers such as acacia and honeysuckle. In the mouth, you will find some lanolin flavors as well as apricot and yellow ripe peach. The finish is long, delicate and balanced.
It is waxy and very White Burgundy like.
 
Waxy and Burgundy like being the most important part of tasting wines in Saint-Peray. Most whites are thin and lacking interest. 
 
Great with fresh oysters, Grilled fish, Bresse Chicken cooked in a creamy sauce with morels ...

Review:

"The 2017 Saint-Péray Blanc from Michel checks in as an even split of Marsanne and Roussanne that was brought up all in neutral oak. It’s an outstanding wine as well as a terrific value. Notes of orchard fruits, honeyed minerality, white flowers, and hints of brioche all give way to a medium to full-bodied concentrated, yet elegant Saint-Péray that has good acidity, notable balance, and a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming decade."

Mellot Reuilly Blanc 2017

The first nose is expressive and opens up to notes of acacia, citrus (lemon, grapefruit). Full on the palate with lovely freshness. This wine boasts nice balance and good length.

The vines are 15 to 20 years old and are located on the left bank of the Cher River, southwest of Quincy. This vineyard enjoys good exposure to the sun and overlies hillocks composed of sandy alluvial deposits and gravel dating back to the Quaternary Period. Each terroir is managed with minimal intervention in an environmentally friendly approach. Vinification: Slow pressing. Fermentation took place under controlled temperatures (18°C).The wine was aged on fine lees for a minimum of 4 months. It was filtered only once before being bottled.

Pair with crustaceans, asparagus, or goat's cheeses.

After pouring, allow the wine to breathe for a few moments in the glass before enjoying so that it may fully release all of its aromas.

Review:

"The 2017 Reuilly Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) is more straight and focused than the Quincy, offering a touch of flinty minerality as well as outstanding notes of lemon and citrus fruit, white flowers, and spice. It has notable elegance and is a balanced, vibrant white to drink over the coming 3-4 years."

Rosé de saignée (bleed technique) with a vibrant ruby color, complex and elegant, notes of crushed strawberries and rose petals.

Tavel Le Cretace Rose gives up vibrant wild strawberry, watermelon, crushed flowers and hints of spice to go with a medium-bodied, layered and seamless profile on the palate. A classic rose from this appellation, enjoy this beauty with food over the coming year or two.

Review:

"The medium to full-bodied 2017 Tavel Le Crétacé is a plump, dark hued rosé, as required by the appellation. Berries and melon aromas and flavors mingle easily, while the finish picks a distinctly chalky sensation. It should drink well through the end of 2019. - Joe Czerwinski"

Review:

"(13% alcohol): Bright ruby-red. Inky scents of blackberry, cassis, smoked peppers and chalky minerality. Enters the mouth with a refined texture and restrained sweetness, with its flavors of red and darker berries, salty minerality, pepper and spices conveying a slightly wild quality. I like this Malbec's light touch and inner-mouth verve. Less floral and more peppery and spicy than the Ayni Gravas bottling. Not hugely concentrated but quite savory and easy to drink. Spreads out nicely on the subtle, bone-dry finish, leaving no impression of weight. - Stephen Tanzer"

A melting pot of creative energy, gourmet fare, farm fresh produce and the vibrant, uncomplicated lifestyle of the people, Short Street captures the essence of the Swartland, where passion, creativity and simplicity are distilled into a captivating experience.

Made in a rich, full-bodied, wooded style, this has an intense aroma of ripe apples, lime and pears with hints of tropical fruit, beautifully enhanced by subtle tones of well-integrated oak. 
Although upfront and bold, the secret of this wine is in its exceptional balance.

Only free-run juice was settled and was inoculated with selected yeast to ferment in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks between 13-14 degrees Celsius. After fermentation the wine is matured in French oak for 3 – 6 months to integrate flavors and enhance a luxurious mouth-feel.
