Ostras Pedrin and Uva Pirata are the first two wines of the new winemaking project by Vicente Gandia.
At the headquarter’s of the Valencia Regulatory Council of the Appellation of Origin has taken place the presentation of the new oenological venture of Vicente Gandia, Peculiar Wines. Each wine that makes up this range is mentored by a winemaker of the winery who have been commissioned to carry out that project he/she had always dreamed of performing. Oenological creativity at its finest that offers micro-elaborations that recovers areas and peculiar varieties. A wine experience with a story behind each wine and has envolved with a packaging design that leaves no one indifferent..
The two first Peculiar Wines are the ones that have been presented in Valencia: Ostras Pedrin by Luis Garcia Severino and Uva Pirata made by Fernando Freire. Both wines are under the Appellation of Origin Valencia.
Ostras Pedrín eis the personal adventure of our winemaker Luis Garcia Severino who has rediscovered the Alto Turia, a 1,100 m high region where he has found a treasure in the variety Verdosilla. A signature white wine that shows a bright straw yellow color. The nose displays aroma of pear, melon and syrup. The palate is friendly, sweet, elegant, lively, fruity and with a long finish. A perfect accompaniment to shellfish, fish, white meat, poultry, rice and cheese. The label has been designed by the Pixelarte group and is inspired by comics of the ’50s.
PFor the next wine creation, our winemaker Fernando Freire has deployed his most pirate side, sailing the wine seas to “hijack” the French Petit Verdot grape which has given rise to Uva Pirata. A signature red wine with cherry red color and violet tones. The palate is fruity, elegant, spicy, mineral, full-bodied, balanced with a long finish. The nose gives off an aroma of red fruits, berries, caramel, vanilla and mocha. An ideal companion to a good steak, cured cheese (such as Stilton) or game meat. The Uva Pirata artwork has been made by the Valencian artist Coté Escrivà inspired by an urban, scoundrel and pirate environment.
Peculiar Wines will expand its range in the future with more wines developed by the rest of the winemaking team of Vicente Gandia.
Vicente Gandia createsan innovative new way to enjoy a glass of wine
Not everything has already been invented and our Sandara Wine Mojito is the proof of it. A perfect combination of flavors and cultures; the best of our wine tradition joined with the joy and freshness of the Caribbean sveamlessly integrated by small and delicate bubbles. An innovative and natural winemaking process blending our wine with natural lime and spearmint.
Sandara Wine Mojito shows an attractive lime green color with hints of lemony yellow. The nose displays a range of citrus and green apple aromas, with refreshing hints of mint and spearmint. The taste is balanced between its sweetness, its fine acidity and elegant fine bubbles that power the citrus and prepares the palate for a long aftertaste of mint.
Ideal for Cocktail parties and other celebrations as the main drink or accompanying light and spicy snacks. A unique experience, ready to drink, just add ice.
Bodegas Vicente Gandía attracts the UEC (Spanish Union of Sommeliers) and was awarded with the “Baco de Oro”.
UEC (Spanish Union of Sommeliers) carried out their most important competition of young wines in Spain. This competition in which there are no restrictions, accept all kinds of wines (white, red, sweet or rosé wines). More than 60 professionals (journalists, sommeliers, oenologists and directors) get together for a blind tasting of all of the wines that are registered. Only one restriction: Harvest 2015.
The albariño wine “Con un Par” has been awarded with a “Baco de Oro”. We recommend with salads, white meat and small game. An ideal wine for sharing with a couple of friends over a couple of lobsters. Con un Par, an exceptional Albariño wine.
Straw- colored yellow with green reflections, clean and very bright. With aromas of tangerine, orange blossom, fresh pastry, pear and white peaches. A deliciously zesty and punchy wine. Pears, melon and citrus fruits are all evident in the front to mid palate. The palate is two- fold experience: characters of Italian pinot grigio pedigree with weight and texture and then the back palate is all racy and Riesling-like with wonderful acidity.
Bodega Vicente Gandía continues to surprise, this year it has been awarded many times.
