Spanish Red Wines

We are actively beginning to specialise in boutique Spanish red wines and are working with some fantastic artisan wineries, importing their handcrafted wines into the UK for our customers. All these wines are tiny production, some just a couple of thousand bottles per year, made by passionate families. They're generally from family farms handed down from generation to generation, and the wines are still made the same way using traditional methods, with some modern improvements.

These Spanish red wines are low sulphite and great tasting, a very healthy lifestyle choice. They're also great value for money.

  5. Asterisco Pago de Cubas D.O. Toro

    Excellent artisan wine. Handpicked grapes of course, the wine is aged in French oak for 6-8 months.

    Bottled unfiltered to retain all the natural goodness, so there will be some sediment.

    This is excellent value.

  6. Incredulo Family Seleccion D.O. Toro

    This Family Seleccion is only produced in exceptional years. So here we have the 2014.

    The grapes are handpicked into small trays, then handsorted at the winery before being fermented in 500 litre oak barrels. The juice is then transferred to 225 litr litre French oak to undergo malolactic fermentation, then it is further aged in barrel for 20 months.

    As artisan a wine as you can get!

  7. Fe Organic Bodega Vagal D.O.P Valtiendas

    This is the third red from Bodega Vagal, first vintage just released. Biodynamically farmed and organically certified.

    It's a fantastic wine produced at altitude (940 metres) so plenty of fresh acidity. It spent four months in oak.

    This is the top wine from Rosa Maria Zarza, from her family vineyard with an average age of 50 years.

    Selected plots of Tempranillo were hand harvested, fermented and subsequently aged in oak for 14 months.

    This is a beauty!

  9. Malcaracter Roble D.O. Ribera del Duero

    This Malcaracter Roble is also a natural wine, farmed organically. The Tempranillo grapes are hand harvested and fermented with their own yeast. The wine is aged in French and American oak for six months then bottled unfiltered. Good fruit with a little spice, well balanced with a nice palate weight, ideal with cheeses or similar fayre. Excellent value.

  10. Tampesta Golan Prieto Picudo D.O Tierra de Leon

    This artisan Tampesta Golan is again Prieto Picudo, this time aged in oak for 26 months. It is delicious and natural. Although aged for 26 months in oak it isn't overpowering as some Reservas can be, it is far more balanced and elegant.

    The wine is made by expert Galician winemaker Luis Buitrón, vice-president of the Spanish Federation of Winemakers and president of the Association of Oenologists of Galicia. Highly recommended.

    This is a library picture of the Roble as there are no professional images available yet as this is a brand new wine. Presentation is very similar though.

    Bodega Vagal Ardalejos is their top wine (of the two they produce). 100% Tempranillo from 28 year old vines at 935 metres, farmed biodynamically (pending certification) , hand picked and fermented with the grapes' own yeast before being aged in French oak for 16 months.

  12. Herederos Rioja Selecion D'Autor

    Herederos 1808 Selecion D'Autor is the top wine from this excellent family winery. More gentle and sophiticated rather than powerful. Only 6 months in oak but then 20 months in bottle so not the heavier vanilla style of Rioja. More purity of fruit with elegance and structure.

  14. Tinta Rosa D.O. Toro

    Rosa Maria Zarza is one of Toro's most respected winemakers. You may recall we previously listed wines from two wineries where she was the winemaker (Pago de Cubas and Bodega Contadero).

    Well here Rosa is making two wines from selected plots in her 50 year old family vineyard. 100% Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro). For this wine the assorted lots were aged in oak for three months.

    Great wine, tasting notes to follow.

  15. Incredulo D.O. Toro

    Delighted to have just received stock of the 2014

    This is a big powerful wine, natural and pure with great overall balance. Big flavours with some vanilla coming thrrough on the finish - fantastic! Get some whle you can.

    This is a tiny winery of "friends" who make just two wines (plus the Family Seleccion in exceptional years) so we are very lucky to have got hold of some of this again this year!

  16. Herederos Rioja Crianza

    There's good fruit flavour with a hint of vanilla. The wine is very smooth with great balance, as it is made naturally without any acid rectification or other trickery. Herederos farm biodynamically and use minimal oneological products during the winemaking, producing a pure wine that tastes as wine should!

  17. Herederos Valcavada Rioja

    A fantastic new wine from this superb boutique winery in Rioja.

    The wine itself is beautiful. Plenty of body, super smooth and integrated as all Herederos's wines are. Like their other wines it is low in sulphites and additives as they farm biodynamically and use absolute minimal additives or manipulation.

    Great value. We predict this will be a big seller.

  19. Cuvee Joana Bodega Vagal D.O.P Valtiendas

    Bodega Vagal is a tiny artisan winery practising biodynamic methods (pending certification) roughly midway between Madrid and Logrono at altitude. They only make three wines and this Cuvee Joana is excellent. In fact I'd go further and say definitely try a bottle as it is something special. Beautifully made with power, grace and purity.
