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.

TASTING NOTES

The nose immediately strikes with beautiful perfumed violets. Rich notes of ripe plum fruit complements this aromatic profile. The palate is full bodied but not over bearing, instead there are soft, gentle tannins that carry the structure superbly. A wonderfully complex herbaceous profile is revealed and dominated by fennel and lavender. The rich purple fruit contains echoes of port and...

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

Our customers love this Albariño for its fresh, aromatic nature and superb food matching qualities. The palate has plenty of varietal tropical fruits like pineapples and mangoes with hints of ripe melons and quince. The flavours and creamy texture pair excellently with seafood. Think monk fish with lemongrass pea purée for your next dinner party with this aromatic white.
