Tremo Maceración Carbónica
Carbonic Maceration is a cutting edge winemaking method where a carbon dioxide rich environment is used to ferment juice inside the grape. This results in very fruity wines with very little mouth-drying tannins. While most popular in France, Bodega Luis Alegre is using Carbonic Maceration in Spain on masterfully grown Tempranillo and Viura grapes for a juicy wine with an aromatic nose of raspberry, cherry and slight violet notes. Soft acidity provides just enough balance for fresh fruit notes that meet licorice on the finish.

Granite Ridge Pinotage
Since the 1920s, vintners have been honing Pinotage, a genetic hybrid of Pinot Noir and Hermitage (or Cinsault) grapes that yields a truly unique light red wine. South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope has perfected the hybrid, with a Pinotage that brings out the aspects of both grapes. In addition to the notes of cherry from the Pinot Noir, and the spiciness from the Hermitage, you'll enjoy a nice juicy palate with balance, length, and a bit of spice, especially if you drink it slightly chilled.
Think of this ripe, Spanish-style red as the guest who takes the festivities to the next level. Raspberry, strawberry, plum, and black currant flavors start in the aroma and get everyone dancing through to the party’s satisfying finish. Open Kepe Tempranillo anytime and invite it by to enjoy your favorite foods like pizza, pasta, and grilled meats.
