Hello, I’m Rob Hoult and here is our Taste Of Spain case. The easiest title for this case is ‘It’s not just bloody Rioja!’ Whilst Rioja is a wine region we all know and does produce some incredible wines, there are also so many other terrific regions which go a little under the radar sometimes. So, this case gives you a terrific introduction to every aspect of Spanish wine.

The wines we sell don’t come off a never-ending production line, so there is always a tiny chance that one of the wines in the curated cases drops out of stock. If this happens, we will replace the missing wine with a one of similar style and always a higher value; we don’t want you to lose out here. The tasting notes in the case will change accordingly, and you’ll still have amazing wine.

What's inside?

The white wines

Bodegas Ontanon Tempranillo Blanco, Rioja £15
An unusual wine in that the grapes are a rare natural mutation of Tempranillo, that means it’s a green grape, not a black grape. Only a handful of growers have fully recognised its potential, and Bodegas Ontanon have properly jumped on board, and the results are terrific. Delicate citrus and stone fruit aromas, white flower and a hint of orange blossom. The palate has minerality and balance with citrus characters, crisp acidity and an elegant, lengthy finish.

Bodegas Naia ‘K-Naia’, Rueda £13
Mostly Verdejo with a little Sauvignon thrown in to add a little zippy finish. Rueda sits at a slightly higher altitude and is perfect for producing tasty, fresh white wines. I think Spain is often thought of as a red wine country, but you can’t have that much sunshine and not want a refreshing, cold glass of crisp white. I’d be very happy in the midday sun with this and some big juicy prawns.

El Xitxarel-lo, Penedes £18
100% Xarel-lo in the most entertainingly designed bottle around. It features 100 images of Catalan slang terms and, best of all, a happiness meter, the more you drink, the happier you get, apparently! That bottle is not a gimmick it symbolises how much joy they have creating this wonderful drop. Fleshy, vibrant and very drinkable.

The red wines

Muriel  Crianza, Rioja £13
It’s taken me a long time to find a Rioja Crianza that actually tasted like I would expect it to. Too often they have been a little reedy and lacking in balance but this wine absolutely nails it. Lovely wild hedgerow fruits with a waft of creamy vanilla and a gently spicy, smooth finish. Proper old-fashioned and superb Rioja.

Paco Mulero ‘Prisma’, Jumilla £14
Proof that minimal intervention winemaking can produce friendly wines. This Monastrel from the very sunny south in Jumilla just wants to give your tastebuds a big cuddle. It’s soft, spicy and supple, yet complex and engaging—an absolute cracker.

Rippa Dorii Crianza, Ribera del Duero £17
Old vine Tempranillo, or Tinta del Pais as they call it in this region, aged in a mixture of French and American oak, results in a wine which has layer after layer of flavour. Bramble fruit with toast, cedar and spice and a heck of a long finish. It’s fabulously Spanish and would be sublime served with a slow-cooked lamb stew.
