Ross’s Trip To London for The Annual Entoria Wine Tasting

“The Annual Entoria wine tasting was held in the very impressive Saatchi Gallery off Kings Road in London this year. Last week I went to London to attend the event. Travelling up and down to London in one day is never easy, but it always softens the blow knowing you are going to taste some great wines.

Some of the notable standouts from this year will be appearing on The Torridon wine list. From the town of Leon in Spain, La Osa Vine Yard uses the white indigenous grape called Albarin and the red grape of Prieto Picudo to create their wine. They yield very small amounts of only 4000 per annum!

Another great wine I got to taste was from the Balearic Island of Mallorca and is made using Biodynamic methods using another indigenous grape called Prensal. Wow – What a wine! It really has taken on those coastal salty flavours and so it would pair perfectly with seafood.

The final wine and, for me, by far the best wine producer who attended the tasting called Anselmi, was from a 70-hectare winery located on the slopes near Verona in the North of Italy. They use a combination of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and the Italian grape of Garganega. These beautiful golden looking bottles did not fail to deliver! We already have Anselmi on our list at The Torridon, but we will be adding the superb dessert wine called Capitelli.”
