Rounding off a weekend of some very good wine, was this selection of wines drank in the Barcelona sunshine. Hard to pick a favourite but the honeyed, pure-fruited and persistent 'Groot Steen' Chenin Blanc from South Africa probably takes it. A special, small production wine (1500 bottles) that is only just coming into its own; if you're fortunate to have a bottle, give it another 2-3 years! - - Gravonia was it's oxidative, tangy, delicious self and Alvear's 'Cerro Macho' a delicate, saline contrast. Both are ridiculous value for money and really hightlight the breadth of styles in Spain at the moment. Vajra's Pinot Noir from his highest altitude vineyards in Barolo was a first for me. Soft and fruity with quite a heavy fruit profile. Tasty but not a patch on his Nebbiolo and Dolcetto based wines. Life is good! - - tagram

Today we visited a little known winery called Arterberry Maresh. The Maresh family farms Pommard and Wädenswil Pinot Noir from 1970, and 1974 plantings and own-rooted Chardonnay from the 1983 plantings. The wines were absolutely incredible. I ended up getting a tasting note I never thought I would get with Pinot Noir and that was red apple. I know, you just turned your head and said, what? It blew me away and I had to buy the bottle. The wine was the 2014 Arterberry Maresh Juliard Vineyard Pinot Noir. If you are ever in the Dundee Hills of Oregon, stop by and visit Steve Mikami and he will give you a great break down of the property. tagram
