The land of windmills and Don Quixote happens to be one of the largest wine-making regions in all of Europe, possibly the world, with vineyards taking up over 192,000 hectars of land. It occupies a massive expanse of central Iberia, and touches on Comunidad Valenciana and Murcia in the east, Extremadura in the west and Andalucia (Andalusia) in the south, as well as the areas around Madrid. The region is mostly flat with big extremes in temperatures that are flaming hot and dry in the summer and bitter cold in winter. 
 
The white grape Airen is the most widely planted and makes a light, crispy refreshing dry wine. Second behind that, but in far fewer plantings is Macabeo. Reds are produced mainly from Cencibel (Tempranillo), with blends of Garnacha, Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon and/or Merlot. These wines are becoming increasingly more artisanal and have begun to make quite a name for the region.

  • Acantus VdT 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I have the 2013 version. Way better than I expected, for a bottle under $7 in price at my local grocery store wine section. Best at cellar temperature, definitely. A little austere, i.e. not too bold and fruity, and that pleases me very well. Though not as stridently so as a great Bordeaux, which are my favorite wines. Just a good wine to have o... Read More

  • Venta Morales Tempranillo Made With Organic Grapes 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Still really, really good. I remember when I ordered this and others drank it early. Plenty of dark cherries, herbal notes and both blue and blackberry nuances. Mellow tannic profile joins good acidity to a slightly sweetened aftertaste. Laying this down worked. Paul 88 points Read More
