Spanish Wine

Spain is one of the word’s largest wine-producing regions. It comprises most of the Iberian Peninsula with a divergence of cultures, climates and, por supuesto, types of wine. There are many notable styles from all over the country, ranging from traditional viticulture to modern and methodical, to rustic, value driven and food friendly young table wines to well aged prized vintages. Not to mention some venerable expressions of methode champenoise and the range of dessert, sherries and fortified wines from salty, dry Manzanillas to candylike Pedro Ximinez soleras. 

Spain currently has 70 government approved wine regions such as Catalunya, Rias Baixas, Ribera del Duero, Priorat, Rueda, Jumilla, Bierzo, Cava and Jerez. Popular indigenous red varietals include Tempranillo (which has many local derivations), Cariñena, Garnacha, Monastrell and Mencia. Popular indigenous whites include Albariño, Verdejo, Macabeo, Xarel-lo and Paralleda (the latter three comprising the ingredients Read more »

  • Terra d'Uro Finca La Rana 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Good floral accents to black cherry, raspberry and spice. There is chocolate note late and the body, though full and impacting is not heavily tannic but is a tad bit tart. Food wine - Paul 89 points Read More

  • Besllum Monstant 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Never had anything by this producer and to be honest I should have waited - but thank the Lord that I have a good aerator and a wide body decanter...this needed both. Inky purple with a clear ring. Lush, heavy nose of violets, blackberry, currant, vanilla, smokey oak (nuanced) with dark cherry. The palate - this is a powerful, teeth & tongue coa... Read More

  • Celler Can Blau "Can Blau" Montsant 2009

    Snoothrank:

    In a word - DAMN! All the hype said outstanding (Just the label gives it that..,thinks 60's party.) Loads of blueberry, blackberry, forest accents, cocoa and anise with a light citrus around the edge. A minor woody note and warm spice round out the nose - well not the nose, but the aromas. The mid-palate is juicy wet with sweet tannins that are ... Read More

  • Bodegas Alto Almanzora Red Blend Almeria Este 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Decent nose to this garnet colored wine. Chocolate, dark cherry and red berry fruits with spice notes. The round gripping tannins pull the fruit and spice to a juicy acidic aftertaste dominated by the well framed fruit. The aftertaste is medium long just like the body. The mid palate is best, picking up a sweetness to the dark cherry backdrop. I... Read More

  • Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This was really good (and cheap)!! Black cherries, currant, plenty of spice, earthy tones with medium tannins, great acidity and a mineral signature at the make one wonder if you are not drinking a pinot noir instead. Excellent with cheeses and breads. Drink now - Paul 90 points Read More

  • Vina Zaco Rioja 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This was a disappointment in comparison to the '08. Could be that it sat to longer. The fresh berry notes were muted and the wine seemed out of balance. There was an uncharacteristic burn at the end also. Good, but nothing to write home about - Paul 83 points Read More

  • Ladera Sagrada a Portela 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Good, but a with a watery pinot style of body this was full of diluted red fruit, pepper and spice. 82 points Read More

  • Bodegas Montecillo Rioja Viña Cumbrero Crianza 2010

    Snoothrank:

    At first I was a little disappointed but as the wine opened the cherry, spice and honeyed notes started to rise up and with a little swirling it got going at the it developed into the Top 100 WS wine that it should. The honey note was particularly satisfying at the end - drink or hold. Paul 90 points Read More

  • I am trying to track down where I can buy Vina Corosa Vino Tinto wine. Probably one of the best wines I have tasted while in Mexico. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  • I discovered the Bodegas Lozano wines during a wine tasting in Belgium and love the Gran Oristan Reserva. I am an American living in Seville area for the next two years and look forward to discovering even more great Spanish wines.

  • Portugal is not Spain!!! Portugal is a country since 1143! The first branded site vineyard in the entire world was Douro region, in Portugal. Update your site, please! Your data are wrong!

  • Woops, I incorrectly stated below that the region was Lleida. Lleida is simply one of the larger towns close to Tomas Cusine winery. The wine region is actually Costers del Segre. Either way it's a very nice spot and I would recommend it to anyone!
