Xose Lois Sebio Hush Ribeiro 2015

The Hush red wine from Xosé Lois Rebio is complex and intense with lush blackcurrant, mocha and spice flavours, fleshy, opulent and textured.

Producer Note - Winemaker Xosé Lois Sebio has produced this stunning eponymous collection of wines as a result of a personal quest: to find wines with unique personality from more risky processing zones and with a very marked identity. This original and quirky range is made from high quality grapes in areas which are often neglected or simply different; vineyards that are difficult to farm due to the high costs of conventional viticulture. Away from fashions and conventions, the sole intention is to respect and express the soil, variety and area; producing wines with soul and personality. The wines are vinified with minimal intervention and low sulphur. These are collectable wines for lovers of the authentic and different.

Vintage - 2015 was an almost perfect vintage. A cold winter, mild spring and a summer with abundant sunshine and little rainfall, resulted in grapes with optimum phenological maturity. The balance between the maturity and freshness found in the grapes was impeccable and they had the lowest pH in recent years. The vines were harvested in perfect health and the resulting wines are capable of great ageing.

Vineyard - The vineyards are situated in the heart of DO Ribeiro in north western Spain. Consisting of several indigenous varieties to Galicia, including Ferrol and Sousón, the vines vary in age from 70 to 90 years and are planted at a density of 1.25 metres by 1.25 metres. These old vines are low yielding, with deep root systems that impart complex flavours and result in soft, sweet tannins in the wine. The vineyards sit at an altitude of 180 to 350 metres and the soils are a mix of clay and schist. The harvest took place manually.

Winemaking - The grapes were carefully selected and vinified in stainless steel open tanks. In order to respect the fruit, the cap was manually punched down using a 'bazuqueo', a wooden disc used to plunge the solids through the juice to extract the colour and flavour. This was followed by a light pressing using a manual spindle press. Malolactic fermentation started in vat and was completed in barrel. The wine was matured for 14 months in 500 litre barrels, previously used once for white wine.

Tasting Note - A complex nose with an array of aromas from violet, lilac, black pepper and ripe berried fruits to delicate mineral tones. Harmoniously balanced with a rounded palate full of fresh, sweet and opulent fruit, this is an elegant wine with fine tannins and a long, intense finish full of character.

Serving Suggestion - Perfect with lamb.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
