The Wines of Spain
6th October 2011 in the fabulous Cellar Room under The Old Ship Hotel in Brighton
We tasted our way through some fantastic wines from Spain with our guests in the Cellars of the Old Ship Hotel.
Here's a reminder of those we tasted:
Pasada Pastrana Manzanilla, Bodegas Hidalgo-La Gitana @ £13.95 a bottle
Cava Brut Reserva NV, René Barbier @ £9.00 a bottle
Conde de Valdemar Blanco 2010, Rioja @ £8.25 a bottle
Casal Caerio Albarino 2010, Rias Baixas @ £14.50 a bottle
Conde de Valdemar Crianza 2007, Rioja @ £12.25 a bottle
Ribero Tinto Meses 2009, Ribera del Duero @ £10.25 a bottle
Roda Reserva 2006, Bodegas Roda, Rioja @ £25.75 a bottle
Roda I 2006, Bodegas Roda, Rioja @ £45.50 a bottle
Pedro Ximenez Triana, Bodegas Hildago - La Gitana @ £15 a bottle
All of which showed beautifully!
The venue was superb and has a fantastic history dating right back to 1559, apparently it is haunted!
The Tapas were superb and beautifully presented - they complimented the wines wonderfully. But as one of our clients pointed out - the salted almonds went well with each and every one of the wines.
Karl continues to deliver a superb service and his tremendous wine tastings at the Bird Cage Walk at Fiveways bring a genuinely informative and much-needed service to the area.
