TOP 100 WINES OF SPAIN 2021

TOP 100 WINES OF SPAIN 2021

Just over a month ago, we finished our tasting of 1,500 Spanish wines, and from those we whittled our list down to the Top 100 for 2021. Above all, it shows that the country is currently at a crossroads of change, with innovative, young producers joining and sometimes surpassing their well-versed and traditional cohort in making superb wines in a mosaic of styles from revived vineyards, cooler terroirs and forgotten grapes.

Best Catalan wines of 2021

Best Catalan wines of 2021

At the end of each year, I like to look back at all the wines I’ve tasted and pick out those in Catalunya that were either outstanding or represented something notable within various regions. This was a busy year for tastings and between the reports of: DO Tarragona, DO Terra Alta, DOQ Priorat, and Corpinnat as well as various tastings with winemakers, I was more or less on pace and tasted over 1,000 references from Catalunya. Keep in mind that it’s still a bit slow going given that we are still very much in a pandemic and bigger tastings are something we just can’t be doing yet although many are anyways.

Why the Tiny, Tenacious Terra Alta Wine Region Should be on Your Radar
22 December 2021 14:06
Why the Tiny, Tenacious Terra Alta Wine Region Should be on Your Radar

One hundred miles from the filament-lit natural wine bars of Barcelona rises Terra Alta, a region few have heard of and even fewer can place on a map. Its name alone, “highlands” in English, conjures images of a magical faraway land. Weathered gothic arches, a once thriving medieval saffron trade, and centuries-long rule by the Templar Knights confer its mystique.

Wine Grape Growers Take Leap To Make Fine Wines In A Spanish Wine Region Dominated By Icons

Wine Grape Growers Take Leap To Make Fine Wines In A Spanish Wine Region Dominated By Icons

Crouched down near the ground, a sharp pain went up his knees and lower back as weathered hands reached out to old grape vines, around 50 years old, to harvest the few bunches of concentrated Tempranillo grape bunches that looked like they hung on a skeleton of a bush plant with its thick, gnarly trunk. The sun beating down on top of his head forced his eyes to squint to combat the glare and the dirt on his face and hands lessened the brutal effects of the sun as he picked his precious fruit. His wife and children were there to help; his ten-year-old son already a seasoned harvester with his skill and speed; his parents, who were advanced in age, would still stubbornly insist on helping out even though many times they would only be able to get through a few vines by the end of the day – each vine only producing a relatively small amount of fruit.

Rioja’s prime single vineyards, where terroir is king
14 February 2022 19:43
Rioja’s prime single vineyards, where terroir is king

In four years’ time, Rioja will celebrate its 100th birthday as a denominación de origen. One of the most widely known names in the world of wine, it has a stylistic expression that tends to veer on the side of creamy indulgence and sensual satisfaction. Happy days, one might think. And yet Rioja is in the throes of an identity crisis – and the grumbles of discontent are getting louder. They are fuelled by philosophical aspiration and political ambition, each pulling in a slightly different direction, each built on the apparently solid axiom that Rioja is one of the very greatest wines in the world and should, finally, be hailed as such.

Top Wine Region In Spain Using Old Technique Of ‘Layering’ Century-Old Vines

Top Wine Region In Spain Using Old Technique Of ‘Layering’ Century-Old Vines

José Antolín grew up in a small village in Spain, home of only a few hundred people during the 1930s to 1950s; even today, only around 250 people still reside there. Like many of their neighbors, his family was dirt poor as there was very little work and just simply putting food on the table was a constant weekly challenge. Almost an hour away, in the historical city of Burgos, there was an opportunity for the Antolín family to open a garage to repair cars and tractors as many wheat farmers surrounded the town as well as a booming industrial economy existed where many inhabitants were making a good living. In 1950, José and his brother invented the rubber-metal steering joints in automobiles helping to prolong the life of this component; fast-forward to today, the family's company, Antolín Group, a Spanish multinational company that designs and manufactures parts for the interiors of cars, has sales that are in the billions of dollars as well as has their components in nine of the ten best-selling vehicles in the world.

Rioja: An Icon Adapts

Rioja has been associated for decades with red wines of style. But for more than 15 years now, the region has implemented a number of regulations, planting, and allowance strategies that are directly impacting new trends in well-established markets like the UK and US.

We have identified five major trends taking the spotlight:

1. Approval of resurrected native and international grape varieties—resulting in the growth of white wine sales.
2. Establishing the phrase “Viñedo Singular”—a designation of a special vineyard to reveal a sense of place.
3. Approval of the production and sale of Rioja sparkling wines.
4. Growth in rosé wine production.
5. A marked return to the heritage of old vines.

Let’s dive into these trends.

Why Spanish Winemakers Are Exploring the Still Side of Cava
31 May 2022 19:34
Why Spanish Winemakers Are Exploring the Still Side of Cava

Cava, the widely recognized sparkling wine of Catalonia, Spain, is produced in the traditional method from a unique blend of both native and internationally sourced grapes. The local varieties, most commonly Macabeo, Xarel-lo, and Parellada, are some of the most widely planted grapes in Cava producing regions, yet we rarely see them in their still form. With Cava’s whirlwind rise to popularity, winemakers are taking a step back to consider the region’s indigenous grapes and potential beyond bubbly, creating a unique category of exciting still wines.
