Spain

spanish-splash.png

Spanish wine culture is just as ancient and sophisticated as that of its neighbours, France and Italy, even it doesn't get as much recognition. Indeed, Spain has more land area under vine than any other country in the world. Many people have heard of Rioja and Sherry, but the diversity of grape varieties and terroirs goes well beyond these famous regions. And Spanish wines offer incredible value for money!

La Rioja Alta 2011 Gran Reserva 904 750ml

$130.34

I usually prefer the 904 to the 890, but there will be no Gran Reserva 890 until the 2010 vintage (from the last vintage I tasted, 2005). So, the only one of the extended-aging Haro-style reds I tasted this time was the 2011 Gran Reserva 904, which had a...

Abel Mendoza 2017 Rioja Jarrarte 750ml

$45.13

The regular 2017 Jarrarte—produced with Tempranillo and matured in used oak barrels for 12 months—should not be confused with the younger and unoaked Maceración Carbónica. 2017 was super challenging and early, and the wine shows...
