Barranco Oscuro 2020 Granada V de Valenzuela

This is one of the most fascinating Spanish whites I've tried this year, from very old vines of Vijariego Blanco. It's funny, everywhere I search about this grape, I am told by the internet that it's exclusive to the Canary Islands, a rare Canary variety. In fact, as I learned from the folks from Barranco Oscuro, Vijariego (they call it Vigiriega here) is originally from Andalucia, in particular the region around Granada. There is an oxidative lean reminiscent of Canary offerings I've had, lovely texture, and a long mineral finish. A special wine from a special grape! -EL

Bodegas Akutain 2020 Rioja Cosecha

Akutain is an estate that we have fallen in love with here at Chambers Street. The Reserva and Gran Reserva were revelations for us, and this Crianza is the perfect prelude, truly resembling a Reserva in style. Mostly Tempranillo with some Garnacha, indigenous yeast fermentation, and aging for 1 year and 9 months in old oak and 1 year in bottle. Leathery tannins, elegant, earthy tones, all around a total winner, and sure to be your new favorite Rioja, especially at this price point.

Bodegas Cota 45 2016 Agostado Cortado

Ramiro Ibanez is making very exciting wines in Sanlucar de Barrameda. This is his oxidative white wine, made with the ancient varieties Perruno (from Trebujena)  and Uva Rey and a small amount of Palomino Fino (from Arcos de la Frontera). Compare it to Palo Cortado sherries, but this is unfortified and the balance between biological and oxidative aging is a product of terroir in the bodega (cellar) and in the pago (vineyards). First, the hand harvested grapes are dried in the sun (this process, the aoleo, is traditional in Jerez but increasingly uncommon) then fermented with indigenous yeasts and pressed whole cluster into  very old 500L Botas. There, the wine rested for 26 months, four of them under flor. The resultant wine is full-bodied and oxidative in character, with aromas of salt, earth, white flowers, melon, citrus, and butter pastry. The palate is structured and intense, alive and powerful, showing a deep and intensely saline earthiness coupled to bright white floral notes, sweet spice, bright citrus and melon. This is the sort of wine that lingers vividly on the palate for minutes, transforming in expected and unexpected (but thoroughly pleasant) directions. As good with crackers, nuts and cheeses as it was with turkey this thanksgiving. Uniquely memorable and satisfying, I am in awe. Ben Fletcher

Bodegas Cota 45 2017 Ube de Uberrima Maina

Cota 45 is an exciting project of still and fortified wines from near Jerez. The Maina is a breathtaking Palomino, certainly one of the best unfortified Palominos we've ever tasted. The plot is a bit more inland than the Miraflores vineyards, and higher elevation, with denser soils. The result is grapes with thicker skins, and a wine that is denser and deeper, with a long subtly nutty finish. A beautiful, slightly oxidative wine that expresses the bleached white soils and heat of Southern Spain.

Can Majoral 2019 Pla i Llevant - Mallorca Butibalausi Negre

Can Majoral was the first certified organic estate in Mallorca, and they are among a small group of winemakers who are passionate about preserving local varieties. This medium-full bodied red is primarily made from the Callet grape, which is indigenous to Mallorca (it's possibly a cross between two other indigenous grapes, but the DNA is unique). The rest of the wine is filled out with Syrah, Tempranillo and Montanegro. Though I usually prefer fresh light bodied reds, there are times when the mood calls for something a bit more supple and generous, with black fruit and richness. Butibalausi delivers just that, and with so much elegance and finesse! The tannins are very integrated and subtle, making this a very easy wine to drink, even though it is ripe and full bodied.  Black berries, leather, soil... highly recommended!  -EL

Castellroig NV Penedès Corpinnat Brut Reserva

Castellroig is one of the finest values in sparkling wine and a great example of the wines of Corpinnat: it is farmed organically, harvested by hand, aged at least 18 months on the lees, and fermented with native yeasts. Marcel Sabate and his team have a remarkable understanding of their vineyards and have mapped out every minute shift in terroir on their estate; this fanatical approach to quality shows in the bottle. The focus of this cuvée is Xarel-lo, a favorite among the grapes of the Penedès for its refreshing mineral qualities and notes of mountain herbs. A light-on-its-feet bubbly for everyday occasions.

Celler Tuets 2018 Penedes Garnatxa Blanca

A little digging in the crates of Selections de la Vina inventory revealed that they still had some 2018 Garnatxa Blanca from one of our favorite Spanish Catalan producers, Tuets. We promptly grabbed some and couldn't be happier with the density, length on the palate, and medium weight of this Mediterranean white. Easily paired with cheeses and snacks, but also full enough to hold up to cream based sauces and any form of poultry or fish.  -EL

Envinate 2020 Tenerife Palo Blanco 1.5L

100% Listán Blanco from centenarian vines in the black volcanic soil of the Palo Blanco vineyard, in the Valle de la Orotava of northern Tenerife. This area is humid despite the substantial elevation (600m above sea level), and the vines are trained in the braided Cordon Trenzado method to promote airflow. All grapes are hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete before aging in a mix of foudre and used barrels for 10 months. Bottled without fining or filtering, and with only a touch of sulfur. This vintage of the Palo Blanco is exceptional. If there is any indication or confirmation, the Envinate folks themselves consider this to be the best vintage yet of this wine. Notes of petrol, mint,and lemons, with subtle fleshy character and savory density. Not to be missed1

Finca Torremilanos 2020 Ribera del Duero Montecastrillo Tinto

This 100% Tempranillo wine from Ribera del Duero is a fantastic value, from  Demeter certified Biodynamic vineyards.  Coming from vines aged between 10- and 20-years-old, the wine is aged 80% in stainless steel and 20% in oak. This is a classic, fuller-bodied expression of warm climate Tempranillo: dark fruit, earth, a bit of leather and medium tannins are in balance with freshness and some herbal character. A great wine for a party or with steak, lamb and anything grilled this spring and summer.

Goyo Garcia Viadero 2021 Ribera del Duero Joven de Viñas Viejas

Goyo Garcia Viadero produces small amounts of elegant, minimal intervention Ribera del Duero from high elevation plots planted with old vines of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo). The Joven is a great introduction to Goyo Garcia's unique style. From a single vineyard of 35 year-old vines at about 860 meters of elevation, the grapes for the Joven are hand-harvested, destemmed, and then fermented with indigenous yeasts in steel tank. There is no fining or filtration before bottling, and no added SO2. For a Joven wine, this is strikingly serious and thoughtful without being heavy or extracted. Red and black fruits, with spice and violet show expressively on the nose after 30 minutes open, while the palate is a bit darker and more savory, with taut acidity, pretty tannins and a long finish that would pair nicely with sausages, lamb, or beef.

Guímaro 2021 Ribeira Sacra Tinto

Pedro Rodriguez is one of our favorite winemakers in Northwest Spain, and the wines from Guímaro are consistently interesting and exciting. This is the most approachable and affordable red wine from the estate, made with hand harvested grapes from precariously steep vineyards of mainly Mencía within the Ribeira Sacra appellation. Fermented and aged without exposure to oak, this wine is red fruited and almost juicy, balanced by bright, clean acidity and a deep mineral core. This is an appealing expression of Mencía, approachable and friendly to food. -Ben Fletcher

La Perdida (Nacho Gonzalez) 2021 Valdeorras Meu

Meu is a field bland of red (Mouraton, Garnacha Tintorera, Mencia) and white grapes (Palomino, Godello, Dona Blanca, Colgadeira) from an old vinetard in Vladeorras that Nacho is currently rehabilitating, like the original vineyard his grandmother handed down to him. Destemmed and fermented in open top wooden vats, with skin removal over the course of fermentation, and aging in stainless steel. Totally delicious, medium bodied, with a fragrant nose of flowers, spice and garrigue, and a zippy finish. Plenty of acid here to see the wine into adult life, though it is particularly enjoyable now.

La Zafra 2019 Alicante Tinto 'Nuet' Monastrell

La Zafra is putting Alicante on the map, and crafting fresh, balanced wines from this hot and arid climate. Monastrell is the red grape here, otherwise known as Mourvedre in France. To me, a good Monastrell smells like roasted meat, leather, and hundreds of wild herbs, and this one delivers on every count. Thanks to the Mar and Ignacio's approach - they search for freshness by farming organically and doing short macerations - this is a wine with loads of character ("garrigue" comes to mind), that is a joy to drink.  A great middle ground between light and full bodied. As appropriate with a light chill and snacks as it is with grilled meat and BBQ  -EL

Luis Perez 2019 VDT Tinto Cadiz 'El Triangulo'

Luis Perez makes wines in Jerez mostly, and is a partner in the La Riva project with Ramiro Ibanez. 'El Triangulo' is a red he produces from the local Tintilla grape in Cadiz. Also known as Tintilla de Rota, because it is almost solely found in and around the town of Rota, this grape is apparently related to Graciano (from Rioja/Navarra), and is known for its pigment and acidity. It produces a dark and dense looking wine which surprises on the palate with lift and freshness. The vines here are in Balbaina, on chalky soils. A delicious, dark red, with blackberry notes, and medium body. Perfect for a summer BBQ!

Pedralonga 2021 Rias Baixas Albariño

From 7.5 ha of organic and biodynamically farmed vines, this Albarino is full of energy! Pedralonga means "big rock" in Gallego, which refers to the chunks of granite that protrude from the vineyard soils and create the textured, mineral core of the palate. With flavors of citrus, green apple, white flower, briny sea spray, and light herbs, the wine is delicious and bright.

Raventos I Blanc 2020 Conca del Riu Anoia de Nit Reserva Rose

Pepe Raventós stepped outside of the Cava appellation in 2012 to create the Conca del Riu Anoia designation. The de Nit rosé was the first Conca wine and continues to sate and impress us with its lively expression of calcareous soils, rich with marine fossils. This is an incredibly versatile sparkler that has crisp, pretty stone fruit and light raspberry fruit with a gorgeous minerality. Made mostly from white grapes Macabeu and Parellada, with a small percentage of Monastrell, this is a very pale rose, barely pink at all (almost peach-hued). Don't hesitate to place this in any role that a more expensive Champagne might have filled...you won't be disappointed!
