No new pic for me, but I'm sure that dozens of WB members haven't been able to sleep for two months, so the answer of this one was La Syrare - Domaine Gallety, the old label [cheers.gif]

That particular bottle was a Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Auslese ***

But if I'm not mistaken it's the same label on all Christoffels.

Ok, a little back-story on this fun, extraterrestrial label:
Click to see spoiler:

Q&A with the winemaker, Alberto:

Q. Talk about this wine, The Martian. I mean, it's certainly one of the most creative labels, but the wine itself is fantastic.

A. This label, this wine, is a crazy wine because in a short time it has become known all over the world, thanks to this label. This label is an expression of Sierra de Gredos, in particular where the wine is from, Navarredondilla. Navarredondilla is a village at the top of the mountain with 1,200 meters of altitude, granite soil, and a big rock with plants growing in the middle of the rock. It is a very pretty area. The area is famous because it is a hot spot for viewing UFOs, Martians, and everything else related to this. On this wine label I show how I go very early to work in my vineyard and I discover two Martians working in my vineyard and I say, "Sorry, what are you doing in my vineyard?" This is a little history of the label.

Q. Illegal immigrants, right?

A. Yes.

Great! I've always wanted to know the story.

I love the wine. I guess the grenache benefits from the granite and the altitude. It reminds me a bit of Clos Bellane's Cotes du Rhone from Valreas, where the vineyards are at a similar altitude on limestone. (That's 50-50 grenache-syrah, though.) Both have a brightness to them, and good structure.

Here's the full El Marciano label for those interested.

Rats! I forgot you'd easily nail this! champagne.gif that's from the Monte Velho, their entry level (the progression being Monte Velho - Colheita - Reserva - Private Selection - Torre). In most other bottlings the logo is engraved directly in the glass below the neck.

This is the actual tower it represents. I have fond memories of driving across the humongous estate under scorching heat and seeing it emerge in the horizon. I believe it dates back to the 15th century.
