Exciting new wave wines from Spain

The Viñateros tasting in London highlighted the work being done by Spanish winemakers to create distinctive wines with a unique sense of place. Julie Sheppard recommends a selection of their bottles from across Spain to try...

Well known for its classic wine regions such as Rioja and established icons like Vega Sicilia, Spain is also home to a huge number of innovative producers who are pushing the boundaries of viticulture and winemaking in the country.

The Viñateros tasting in London was a showcase of their talents. In Spanish the term viñatero signifies a wine-grower, and a focus on viticulture and wines with a sense of place was a theme that united the diverse selection of producers at the event.

The line-up included leading names such as Telmo Rodriguez, who since the 1990s has been focusing on recovering old vineyards across Spain – from Malaga to Valdeorras – and notably resurrected the tiny 1.9ha Las Beatas vineyard in Rioja’s Labastida, to glowing acclaim.
