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 »

  • Protocolo Tinto Dominio de Eguren 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice bright ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is classic tempranillo, with aromas of ripe berries, plum and leather and just a hint of mint. The taste is not as laden with jammy fruit as the nose would suggest, instead the fruit was subdued and quickly transitioned to some notes of iron and toasted oak midpalate... Read More

  • Castillo Catadau Gran Reserva 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Another Naked Wines one...Red Ruby with a bit of Brown translucent in the glass. Opens with thyme and cherry and other herbs, then ripe blueberry and green leaf of something...then cocoa, and boysenberry. Thick in the mouth, with a bit of alcohol burn, but loads of roasted berry fruit and oak. Balanced tannins and acidity, great now, this seems ... Read More

  • Turmeon Vermouth NV

    Snoothrank:

    Delicious aperitivo wine, and best Vermouth wine i have ever tasted. I can drink it at any time, refined flavours from the aged wine plus the complexity of the botanicals. Spectacular wine in the mouth with the spices and the figs flavours coming out, it touches your heart too. Very original label. Read More

  • Portugal is not Spain!!! Portugal is a country since 1143! The first branded site vineyard in the entire world was Douro region, in Portugal. Update your site, please! Your data are wrong!

  • Woops, I incorrectly stated below that the region was Lleida. Lleida is simply one of the larger towns close to Tomas Cusine winery. The wine region is actually Costers del Segre. Either way it's a very nice spot and I would recommend it to anyone!
