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 »

  • The words 'higher quality' seem a little subjective to me. In Rioja in Spain or Chianti in Italy the words 'reserva' or Grande reserva' indicate time the wine has spent in oak barrels which is a matter of fact rather than opinion Read More

  • The Marques de Riscal bottle is a comforting sight in many countries I've ... staying for long periods in Spain at houses with groups of people ended up buying cases of the stuff.

  • Campos Reales Canfora Reserva Especial 2010

    Snoothrank:

Dusty, dry and austere in the mouth, this relies on structure and texture to tell its story, with fruit playing a support role but having a solo of ripe black currant and black cherry on the mid palate before yielding to brambly earth, espresso and a long ...
