The world of wine has evolved dramatically over the past few decades, but I can’t think of a place that has changed more than Spain.
Across the country, manufacturers are reviving old traditions, inventing new styles and, in general, raising quality to levels never seen before. They are highlighting the grapes that have been removed and the expressions that have been removed. Spain offers so much wine that I find it interesting.
Much of the work is done by a new generation of farmers and producers, who, influenced not only by local traditions but also by the worldwide wine conversation, have created communities. community is linked by like-minded ideas.
This month, we’ll explore three red wines from new wave Spanish producers. As with the orange wines we drank in the last month, here are different examples, from different regions of Spain and made with different grapes. However, I think the wines will exhibit a few characteristics in common.
One of them is their importer, Pastor Jose, who have done a great job bringing manufacturers like this to the United States. He’s not the only one doing very well in Spain – Choose De Maison, European wine cellar and Choice de la Vina are three more things that immediately come to mind.
I would recommend many of these three imported wines, although they do not all fit into this new wave category. But coincidentally, these three were all brought in by the Pastor. They are:
Envinate Ycoden-Daute-Isora Benje Tinto 2020 (Pastor José’s Pick / Llaurador Wine, Fairfax, California) $29
Goyo García Viadero Ribera del Duero Joven de Viñas Viejas 2019 (Pastor José’s Choice / Llaurador Wine) $30
Laura Lorenzo Daterra Viticultores Camino de la Frontera Viño Tinto 2019 (Pastor José’s Choice / Llaurador Wine) $32
Like I said, they all come from different places. Envínate hails from Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Goyo García from Ribera del Duero in northern Spain and Laura Lorenzo from western Spain, near where Portugal meets the southeastern edge of Galicia.
Consider these as bright reds that will be best served cold.
