One of the fastest selling $50 wines of all time for us here at winestore. came into port for the first time in December of 2019 and it went wild from there...
So let's just say when we were offered the opportunity to buy in at this price, we did not hesitate.
What is up with the wine?
Many of you know and love "Escorlada" - the $20 showstopper from one of the first families of Spanish wine that we brought into the United States (the wine with the ships on the label).
Well, that wine has a big brother...and by big brother, we mean BIG.
This Spanish powerhouse comes from nearly century old garnacha vines, yielding some of the lowest tonnage yields I have ever heard of, and is aged in 100% new Taransaud French Oak (think the Ferrari of the barrel world).
When talking about low yields, let us take the Musigny vineyard for example - one of the top spots for Grand Cru Burgundy (Pinot Noir), where bottles start around $300. Le Musigny typically in a good year will yield some 3,500 liters of wine per hectare. The yields from the Garnacha vines that go into the Ladron yield just 700 liters per hectare (that means every 2.5 acres of vines at this site only yields 933 bottles of wine).
In Napa these bottles would cost $500 just based on that alone :)
The first time we tasted it we were floored - one by the color and the flavor profile (think the wine equivalent of the movie Roadhouse) - but also by the price we were offered. It only further reinforced to us that some of the most outstanding values in all of winedom continue to come out of Spain.
First come, first served. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
