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 »

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of oak and berry on the nose and deep, spicy cherry on the palette that reveals itself more and more when decanted for 12+ hours. Easy to drink wine...a real bargain! Read More

  • Tres Ojos Garnacha 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This smells fresh and exciting with transparent black fruit allowing notes of soil, tar and anise to peek through. Absolutely bursting with fresh fruit in the mouth this has zesty acids and just the right level of soft fruit tannins to give this a lovely, refreshing mouthfeel. A great value and perfect wine for those days by the Barbecue or simp... Read More
