SPAIN

With nearly 1.16 million hectares under vine, Spain boasts the largest surface area of vine cultivation in the world that dates back to Roman times. There are 67 appellations, many of which perhaps live in the shadow of the better known appellations of Rioja, Cava, Sherry and the Ribera del Duero.

The country has a varied climate from the cooler, greener north to the parched Mediterranean south, but the growers cope with the heat by planting vineyards with an average altitude of 2,000 feet. The hot climate produces ripe, rich and powerful wines that can compete well with New World reds, but with additional appeal from a host of excellent indigenous grape varieties.

The nose opens with warm earthy tones. Appealing spice sits alongside dried peel notes and hightoned fruit over a hint of leather The fruit is forward, and a touch juicier than in the past, underpinned by the same spicy notes found on the nose. A keen freshness knits everything together and the balance of this wine is impeccable. Drink from...

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.

TASTING NOTES

“The Viña Arana 2009 is a wine with that smooth, polished red colour typical of classic Riojas. Clean and bright in the glass, with light orange notes on the rim. Outstandingly intense nose, with light balsamic tertiary aromas of tobacco, caramel, incense and spices against a background of ripe fruit. Consistent and well-balanced in the mouth, with fine, elegant...

A blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat giving a fresh and aromatic wine with plenty of citrus flavours and peachy, floral hints. The Chardonnay gives a great rounded, creamy texture which lends the wine to pairing with creamy cheese.

TASTING NOTES

The best classic style of Garnacha and Tempranillo pulling together joyful fruit expression and serious depth. In the mouth it is amazingly complex, and unique. A benchmark Rioja blend.

A delightful bouquet of crushed blackberries and damsons is accompanied by perfumed, spiced notes of violet, pot-pourri and black pepper. The palate is full and rounded with fine velvety tannins and a fantastic freshness that lifts the wine, providing an elegant and striking backbone. The finish is floral and persistent. This excellent value wine from a well-regarded organic producer would...

Very bright cherry red colour, with a medium-high robe. Fresh and clean to the nose, with hints of ripe berries (blackberries and gooseberries), roasting and tobacco. After agitating the glass, they give way to hints of walnuts, cinnamon and sweet liquorice. Direct on the palate, with a good balance between alcohol and acidity; marked tannins leave an elegant aftertaste with...

TASTING NOTES

An introduction to the quality of Gramona’s wines and what a beautiful entry-level Cava. 18 months ageing on lees has imbued some subtle toasty, autolytic notes but this NV is primarily about the refreshing, defined citrus and stone fruit. A touch of minerality and laser-like acidity round off the richness here with aplomb. A wonderfully more-ish Cava that would be...
