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 »

Spain on Snooth

  • Señorío de Rubiós Robaliño Albariño Rias Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly floral honeysuckle and rose petal aromas with pleasant minerality and lemon and lime fruit notes on the nose. This has a playful and expressive mouthfeel with buoyant acidity and sweet spice alongside pink grapefruit, lime and a cooling finish full of creamy hazelnuts, green apple, honeydew melon and clean citrus fruit. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Santiago Ruiz Albarino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Assertive spice and zesty citrus on the nose with sea foam slate minerality. Tart and lemony in the mouth, this manages to be both zesty and soft, with creamy almonds playing against honeysuckle and Meyer lemon and a fresh wave of vanilla spice shooting through on the finish and giving way to floral apricot and toasted melon. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Condes de Albarei Albariño Rias Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Aromas of mineral peach, green apple and orange blossom with hints of buttery melon. Juicy and firm in the mouth with good body, more melon and fresh grapefruit notes, even a touch of pineapple coming through on the mid palate with a pleasant sandy salinity filtering through towards the finish just before releasing a touch of tangerine and cream. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Valminor Rias Baixas Albarino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh salty ocean air, seaweed and spicy lemon balm notes on the nose leading to a slight buttery character with grapefruit flavors. Continuing the theme on the palate, this wine tastes like a refreshing day at sea with salty lemon zest and lively, bouncy acidity in front of a tart citrus and ripe green apple finish. Excellent body, texture and ... Read More

  • Pazo de Senorans Albarino Rias Baixas 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Light refreshing mineral notes of lemongrass and lemon zest with a hint of mint and white pepper. Generous flavors of ripe peach, melon, persimmon and lemon on the palate with a perky acidity and a hint of effervescence through the midpalate. Finishes light but long with a nice creaminess and more mineral salinity. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Altos de Torona Albariño Sobre Lias 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Focused salinity, stony minerality and ocean air on the nose are classic and expressive. Opens nicely on the palate with bright grapefruit, lime and melon fruit, tart acidity and more minerality coming through. This is canonically Albariño, freshly fruited and nicely balanced. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Vionta Albarino Rias Baixas 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy lemon meringue notes with toasted hazelnuts and sustained fresh lemon underlying the complexity. Pleasantly crisp and fresh in the mouth on entry but with an earthy toast and creaminess supporting the fruit and rounding out the textured mouthfeel, finishing clean and light once more with melon and lemon fading into a toasty memory. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial


  • Martin Codax Albarino Rias Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Sweetly floral on the nose with excellent minerality, sea breezes, sunflower seeds and lime zest. Gentle citrus notes on the palate with a stony backbone, green apple and lemon fruit filling the center and a tart acidity towards the finish that plays nicely against a creamy nuttiness. Read More

    Wine review by Jim behr


  • A knowledgeable wine merchant told me: "if you want to know Garancha, this is it". I found it in Bielsa Campo de Borja Garancha, 2008. Great extract, aromas and mouth feel with pepper always following, this young wine was ripe fruit with balance. A great value out of the Zaragoza province near Aragon.

  • My husband and I recently returned from Spain. We especially loved the table wines, but learned when inquiring about shipping a case home that the shipping costs would be prohibitive. Are any of these young, inexpensive wines available in the US?
