Description

Angel Rodriguez farms 25 hectares in Rueda in the Castilla y Leon department of north west Spain and is said to produce the best wines in the region. The estate has been in the family since 1794 and Angel is credited with the single-handed revival of the indigenous Verdejo grape which has been grown in the area since the 11th century but became almost extinct in the 1970's. Martinsancho is a single-vineyard that was planted with Verdejo in 1976, the vines from cuttings taken from a one-acre site of pre-phylloxera vines which has been cultivated since the 17th century. Today, the origins of most of the Verdejo vineyards in Rueda can be traced back to Martinsancho cuttings and for his work Angel was recently honoured by King Juan Carlos of Spain. This particular Verdejo is floral and aromatic and pairs well with spicy seafood dishes.

A pale yellow in colour with green flecks. On the nose, scents of pear, stone-fruit and honey. On the palate, stone and orchard fruit with some citrus and notes of tropical fruit. The finish is mineral with salty hints. A very approachable and food-friendly wine. Try with grilled swordfish and a green herb salsa, steamed fillet of sea bass on a bed of fennel with tarragon sauce or spiced clams with chilli, ginger, turmeric and lots of crusty bread!

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.
