Sarah Jane Evans MW: My top 10 Spanish wines of 2023

Including fresh vibrant styles from native grapes, bottles from Rioja and Ribera del Duero and a 1975 amontillado Sherry, expert Sarah Jane Evans MW shares her favourite bottles of the year.

2023 has been a great year for lovers of Spanish wine. The choice of wines is terrific. For me, in particular, it’s been a year of properly returning to normal, being able to get out and about and meet producers across the country and the islands, walk the vineyards, taste their wines.

I have travelled this year to the USA, Greece and Japan, and co-chaired the global diversity of the Decanter World Wine Awards. However, I’m limited here to choosing just 10 wines from Spain only. How difficult that is!
