For only the 5th time EVER and what will be the last time in 2023, the Gil Family have allowed us to buy into Escorlada and bring it to you on sale for $14.99 per bottle.
I get maybe more fired up than anyone about wines that fly off (in a good way) the quality to price ratio scale, and Escorlada is one of my favorites of all time.
I love everything about Escorlada. I love the wine, I love the packaging (honestly, it may be the best wine package I have seen), I love the box it comes in, I love the whole thing.
When it is on sale like this? Find me another wine that tastes this good, looks this good, and impresses like this, for $14.99. I'm not sure it exists.
The wine has been rated among the top 1% of all wines in the world by Vivino, was our 2019 Wine of the Year and is an all around ridiculous value at $14.99 per bottle.
What's the background?
Bodegas Lo Nuevo is crucial to the modern success of Spanish wine, especially wines from the Levante, the Africa-facing south. Here the Almansa region grows Garnacha, among other traditional Spanish red grapes, but unlike the oxidized, alcoholic wines of yore, the new wines are bright and sunny with all the original fruits from the grape preserved. Lo Nuevo has few peers in this grand evolution from the ancient and occasionally noble to something populist, fruity and modern. But they would be the first to insist that their success is conditioned upon old vines grown at high altitudes. Here the Garnacha is at nearly 3500 feet, where the otherwise relentlessly warm temperatures see nighttime cooling into the 40s.
These old Garnacha vines produce BIG and RICH red wines that don't require the same price points as some of the California peers because, quite frankly, the costs to make them in Almansa are simply not as big as they are in Napa.
So here we go, for six days only, maybe my favorite wine in the store for what is an absolutely silly price.
