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 »

    Wine review by erickafilm


  • Milcampos Tempranillo Vinas Viejas 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very fine Ribera del Duero wine for the price. Although a bit slow to open - even after aeration and decanting - the nose does reveal bright raspberry and dipped cigar. On the palate, there is a smooth yet slightly tannic, entry with less raspberry and more cherry - even blueberry poking through. The wine has a lengthy, pucker-like f... Read More

  • Pazo Torrado Albarino Rias Baixas 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Honey, candied lemon peel and green apple aromas. Lemon rind on the palate with peach, pleasant acidity and a touch of yeasty toast on the finish. Read More

  • I think I need to take a harder look at Spain in 2015 as an early New Years resolution. Along with Hungary and a few more Germans as well.Re: Rusack, that's interesting Fox. A good memory I have of my dad and I was that we had a grand old time in Catalina dining at their new resort (at the time). I remember having such a nice dinner, bantering w... Read More

  • Well, I have to say that in NYC you have more access to more wine than just ... enough to find it even from Spain! The grape was almost extinct until a few growers took a chance on it and the best ones can be pretty good, but as EMark said, I don't think most growers have cracked the code yet.Anyhow, speaking of not quite cracking the code, la...
