Spain is one of the most exciting wine making countries on earth and was recently tipped by American Wine Guru Robert Parker to be the country to follow over the next few years. The case I have put together, reflects the modern sexy Penelope Cruz Spain it is full of luscious, rumbstious, downright naughtily drinkable wines. No dry dusty old red’s here.
There are two bottles of each wine in the case
Bodegas Borsao Tinto Garnacha, Campo de Borja 2012
Bodegas Borsao is a co-operative established in 2001. It is situated in Campo de Borja a region to the south east of Rioja. This wine could hardly be more drinkable and has won numerous sommelier awards for being the perfect house wine.
Borsao Selección Tinto, Campo de Borja 2012
70% Garnacha, 20% Syrah, 10 % Tempranillo. Simply one of the most dangerously drinkable wines I sell it bursts with lovely ripe fruit. There is a hint of mocha and just enough grip to keep it
Manon Tempranillo, Bodegas Mano a Mano, Alhambra 2010
From a state of the art winery that harnesses both traditional techniques and modern methods to produce a wine of great elegance. Lovely ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit, supple smooth tannins and good length
Bodegas Juan Gil Pedrera Monastrell , Jumilla 2012
Monastrell is known as Mourvedre in France and it produces wines of great depth of colour and intense fruit as those who are familiar with the French versions might know. Here you get some chocolate notes along with the dark fruit and easy tannins.
Pasión de Bobal, Bodegas Sierra Norte, Utiel Requina 2011
Made from the unfamiliar Bobal grape this wine is as its name suggests a heaving torrent of vinous lust, spicy exotic fruit sprinkled with incense, soft silky tannins and come hither flavours that just will not say no. It will certainly spice up an evening!
Urbina, Crianza Rioja 2006
Well a Spanish selection would not be complete without a Rioja and this is a classic example of what people expect. All sunshine, baked fruit and leather notes, it is a blend of 95% Tempranillo with 5% Graciano & Mazuelo from 30 year old plus vines. Aged in American oak casks that leave a sweet touch of vanilla and it is undoubtedly the star of the case.
