Since 1978, Felipe & Pilar Gutierrez de la Vega have championed traditional winegrowing in the sun-soaked region of Alicante. Inspired by the historical wine styles of their area, the couple produce a diverse range of 14 wines, from dry to sweet, in their 19th century bodega and pay tribute to the novels, writers and composers which inspire their “vinos de autor” cuvées. The Gutierrez de la Vega family has brought a truly singular approach to fine winemaking in their region. The bodega is located in the small mountain town of Parcent, very close to the Mediterranean Sea on the Alicante coast. The estate vineyards are here in the Marina Alta, and they also work with vineyards in the Sierra de Salinas mountains higher inland. The hot summer days and cool nights of these coastal mountains are perfectly suited for the long growing season of Monastrell and the other indigenous varieties grown here. Tio Raimundo is the family’s small-production Moscatel de Alejandría that is aged under flor and named after Pilar’s father. The grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed and directly pressed into steel tank for primary fermentation, transferred to French oak barrels where it develops a veil of flor after about 1 month and remains under flor for 18 months, then bottled in 2017 without fining or filtration. This is a gorgeous vino blanco that evokes the Alicante landscape and the nearby ocean with flor-inflected aromatics of citrus, flowers, bread yeast, and sea salt, with linear, precise palate, and very long and persistent flavors on the palate. Perfect to pair with ocean creatures of any kind.
