Four lovely wines at The Remedy: Hungary, Sicily, Germany, Spain

Had a lovely evening at The Remedy, one of London’s most interesting wine destinations. And, on Monday, a decent selection of wines at half price! Four memorable wines consumed.

Pósta Borház Kadarka 2012 Szekzárd, Hungary14% alcohol. Kadarka is such an interesting red variety. It’s a bit like Pinot Noir, a bit like Saint Laurent. And in warm-ish climates it can still make very fresh red wines. This is vivid, fresh and peppery with lovely black cherry and plum fruit, and some nice grainy structure. It has elegance but it also has edges. 92/100

Barraco Catarratto 2013 Sicily, Italy
12% alcohol. This is an amazing white wine, grown close to the sea, and with an almost salty tang to it. It’s complex, mineral and salty with lovely citrus and grapefruit characters. Lively and multidimensional, and also extremely drinkable. It keeps changing in the glass. 93/100

Shelter Winery Spätburgunder 2012 Baden, Germany
This is a lovely Pinot Noir. It’s fresh and floral with bright red cherry and plum fruit, with a sappy edge. Juicy, bright, sweetly fruited and showing admirable purity. Such a joy. 92/100

Escoda Sanahuja El Bassots 2012 Conca de Barbera, Spain
14% alcohol. This skin contact white is one for the brave. It has a bit of a volatile nose, with lively flavours of apples, pear and spice. It’s tangy and lively with structure and a bit of bitterness, as well as some spicy phenolic notes. A massive, intense flavour experience. It’s not for everyone, but I really enjoyed it. 91/100

  1. Shelter Winery.. they make an inexpensive Spatburgunder called Lovely Lily or something like that. Earthy and good for under 20 dollars in the USA.
