Critic reviews

World Wine – This is a remarkable wine. Texture, purity, aroma, line and length … it's punchy (lemon drops and all that), but soft with lovely golden release (green-grassy herbs, fennel, electric pollen, lemon jube): the wine is open-fermented and spends a couple of days on skins for textural evolution to avoid strictness, and gains a lovely sense of roll without losing any of the line and zap you want.

Description

Punchy nose of lemon drop and green-grassy herbs with a fennel pollen zap! The skinsy component adds a nice fat lemon jube texture without any cloy or caramel. Delicate overall, totally satisfying.

Produced from vines averaging 35 years old, Zarate's estate wine is based on minerality and acidity, the combination of Salnes valley Granite and Albariño's coastal zip producing a fresh, elegant, balanced wine. Fruit is hand picked, sorted by the bunch in the vineyard, and then berry plucked in the bodega. Fruit is gently pressed, giving a low-yield must which is settled and undergoes natural fermentation, spending 3 months on lees before filtration and bottling.

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.
