Description

100% Garnacha, multiregional, carbonic maceration. You could file this under either Ribera del Duero or Madrid as it's actually a blend of fruit sourced from both regions. ‘The King of Glam’ started off as an experiment – to find out what would result from blending Garnacha from both areas and using whole bunch, carbonic maceration. The results were so damn delicious that Alfredo has now made it a permanent part of the range. Bright and juicy and packed with sarsaparilla, red jube and brown spice notes – there’s loads of sweet fruit and a vibrant clean finish. It is, to quote Alice Feiring, “Alfredo Maestro's glou-glou wine.”

The grapes are drawn (50:50) from the Peñafiel high country of Ribera del Duero and Alfredo's plots in the Navarredondilla part of the Sierra de Gredos mountain range, west of Madrid (200km apart as the crow flies). As with El Marciano above, there’s no oak, wild yeast fermentation and no fining or filtration.

Wines of Spain

With 2.9 million acres of land planted in wine grapes, Spain is the most widely planted wine producing nation and second largest producer in the world. Many styles of wine are produced in the country most of which are based on native grape varietals.

The two most famous regions are Rioja and Ribera del Duero for their Tempranillo production. Rioja Tempranillo (the classic) will be lighter and fresher with red fruit flavours as compared to those from Ribera del Duero that are often deep purple, higher in alcohol with more tannins and intense black fruit character. Rioja is also known for producing Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from the indigenous Viura varietal.

In the Catalonia region, Spain is recognized for making a sparkling wine in the traditional method but using native grape varieties. This is called Cava. Priorat, a subregion within Catalonia specializes in making still red blends of Garnacha, Carignan and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in a bold and full-bodied style. Together with Rioja, wines from Priorat have achieved DOCa/DOQ status signifying their quality.

Sherry is Spain’s famous fortified wine which can either be completely dry, lusciously sweet or somewhere in between. This is made in the southern region of Jerez.

Other notable Spanish wine styles include: Monastrell (AKA. Mataro/Mourvèdre), produced in the Jumilla region and refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo from north western Galacia.
