for this region?


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.

  • Altozano Verdejo & Sauvignon Blanc 2011


    Quire pure on the nose with hints of herb stem and earth framing sweet cognac tinged notes of earl grey tea and raspberry compote. The oak gains a little more intensity but aromatically this remains wonderfully focused and bright. On entry there a big rush of raspberry fruit followed by bristly yet well covered tannins and a nice dose of earthy... Read More

  • Opera Prima Pink Moscato NV


    Nose: First scent I pick up is floral, violets, perhaps? Beneath that you can definitely smell some peach/fruit, but it's muted in comparison to the abundant smell of alcohol, which I feel is the most abundant flaw in an otherwise fine bottle.Taste: Very light,but no obvious astringencies that the pungent alcohol aroma would lead you to believe....

  • Viento Aliseo Viognier 2012


    This modest pick - an organic Viognier wine from La Mancha -stands tall and correct without a label depicting windmills; the sweet honeysuckle, peach and ginger nose is very Mediterranean and inviting; on the palate the pale straw liquid is smooth and balanced with just a hint of orange peel. Great value! 87 points. Read More
