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 »

  • Casa Castillo "Las Gravas" Jumilla 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This is as good a "low key" wine as there is. There a little red berry fruit, a little whisp of smoke, coffee and a little mocha. The mid-palate is fleshy with out a lot of definition but pleasing none-the-less. The finish sees modest tannins matched with equal acidity. Drink now. Paul 89 points Read More

  • Can Blau Monastrell 2013

    Snoothrank:

    I really don't know what to say - I've had great success drinking this wine, but this was just plain flat - almost like it had entered a "dumb" stage. Except for dark cherries, very mild spice there wasn't much else, a big disappointment. Paul 78 points Read More

  • Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Carinena 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is a wonderful value red that is red with purple hues upon the look and has great clarity! Fruit forward aromas of cherry, strawberry, and blackberry/blueberry warmth, along with black soil and some spice in the background. Flavors follow the aromas nicely and this is very juicy! The ripe berry character comes through very well and provi... Read More

  • 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?
