A little over 15 years ago, Bodegas Habla set out determined to realize a particular vision. They wanted to create wines that were an unmistakable expression of the specific characteristics of their particular terroir. They wanted to capture the subtle and unique characteristics that the geography, geology and climate of their land embodied.
They spent years researching to find the exact location where they would establish their winery. They spent even longer meticulously nurturing their grapes. They even developed their own innovative techniques for producing their distinctive vision of wine.
Finally, in 2008, their first vintages came to fruition. The world was finally able to taste the Habla vision.
What the world experienced was the pure fruit of the soil as defined by a specific moment in time, a specific trajectory of climactic conditions, and a specific development process. A combination of time, place and space that by definition can never again be repeated.
Bodegas Habla drives this point home emphatically: since 2008, each Habla wine was given its own number. These are unique, limited editions. When they’re gone, they’re gone. The next one will be different, although unique in its own right.
Bodegas Habla also assigns pointed descriptions to each edition, choosing words they feel best capture the essence of each (the following are Habla’s words, not ours):
Habla No. 1 – Intense, Complex, Prodigious
Habla No. 2 – Sensual, Voluptuous, Delicate
Habla No. 3 – Subtle, Feminine, Elegant
Habla No. 4 – Virtuosity, Emotion, Delirium
Habla No. 5 – Rationality, Passion, Depth
And so on…
Bodegas Habla has quickly earned a reputation for creating distinctive, even avant-garde wines that seem to surprise the senses of everyone that has tried them.
The Spanish Red is scheduled to visit their facilities soon, and we’ll certainly post a full report when we do.
