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 »

  • Pintia Toro 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I unfortunately no professional reviewer. I love this wine. It has a nice colour and texture; smooth. It has a lovely flavour, sweet but not overpoweringly sweet like an iced wine can be. It's able to complement desserts without drowning them out, or enjoyed after dinner on its own. Read More

  • San Vicente 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Rich dark red, intense blackberry flavours with vanilla notes, velvety mouth feel with long smooth tanins Read More

  • Veroton Bodegas Alto Moncayo Bodegas Alto Moncayo Espanha Aragon Tinto 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I've had 3 bottles of this in the last year and have been very impressed each time. Super smooth with chocolate notes and expressive berry with a touch of jam. Feels like a superb Australian Shiraz, but love that it is a Spanish Garnacha. Wow'ed many friends at a neighbor's party and, by request, went back home for another bottle! Read More

  • Bodegas Ateca Atteca 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Soft and supple tannins rounding out a good balance between acidity and sweetness. Cassis and blackberry intermingle with Indian spices on midpalate. Finish is somewhat lacking in my opinion. My wife loved this bottle though. I agree that the cellaring potential is very limited. Read More

  • Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Oh, tannin bomb. Oak, berry, black, rich on the nose. Jammy taut, veggie on the tongue. May be good for oily foods as it would cut through butter with its bitterness. Was priced at $10.99. Try it if you can get it for less. Read More

  • Torres Gran Coronas Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

    Snoothrank:

    SAQ 20$vin riche, mais pas si tannique. Bon pour viande rouge et mets un peu épicés. Bio.Robe de teinte grenat profond. Nez puissant qui dégage des arômes de cèdre et d’aneth. Le tout est complété par des parfums de prune et de torréfaction. Laissant percevoir une agréable fraîcheur ce rouge est muni de tannins charnus. À cela s'ajoutent des sav... Read More
