Bodegas Paternina - Haro

Founded in 1896, Bodega Paternina is based in Haro, the epicentre of the Rioja wine trade. The Monte Haro is soft and
elegant with good red fruit flavours and now has a screw cap. The Banda Dorada white has crisp citrus fruit. Banda Azul
and Banda Roja are both classics that have benefitted hugely from the bodegas massive investment in new oak over the past decade.

Bodegas Navajas - Navarette

The wines of Antonio Navajas are going from strength to strength. He has started blending oak-aged wine in with his Tinto to give it more body to balance the fruit. We started shipping his Crianza over ten years ago now and have been delighted with the response: this wine offers sensational rich plummy-oak flavours at a very reasonable price. Also on the list comes the excellent Reserva, aged in oak for three years.

Marqués de Murrieta

A superb range of Riojas from the great Marqués de Murrieta’s 300 hectare Ygay estate at Logrono. The  Marqués de Murrieta Reserva
is benchmark Rioja that has been aged in American oak for over 20 months – a perfect example of modern-style Rioja, and the classic
Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva
has fabulous complexity having spent 40 months in American oak. For a real treat, try the Dalmau  Reserva 2004,
their flagship, modern-style reserva that has 10% wine from 90 year old Cabernet Sauvignon added into the blend, creating a wine with great intensity
of black fruit. The Pazo de Barrantes Albarino is owned by the Creixell family of Marqués de Murrieta and is a wine that has wonderfully aromatic and exotic fruit overlays.

Ribera del Duero and Rueda

The MoMo white from Rueda is a delicious blend of Verdejo and Viura with lovely zesty, citric freshness.
The Alion Reserva is indisputably one of Spain’s finest red wines, combining elegance, grip and fabulous damson-black
fruit. Alion comes from Vega’s neighbouring estate and is 100% Tempranillo.

Catalunya - Castillo Peralada

Some of our favourite wines on the list come from Castillo Perelada in the Costa Brava. The superb Castillo Perelada 3 Fincas Crianza
is a blend of Garnacha, Carinena and Tempranillo that has spent 12 months in American and French barriques giving it the classic
vanilla flavours that balance the forest fruits. The 5 Fincas Reserva is a big reserve wine that has spent 18 months in oak and has
broad sweet tannins and a superlative depth of plum and damson fruit. The superb Gran Claustro – their flagship blend of Cabernet,
Merlot, Carignena and Garnacha – was rated top Spanish red in Wine Magazine. Their taster noted: ‘Deep, dark and richly fruited with a gorgeous aroma.’

Priorat - Red

The wines from Perelada’s Priorat Estate – Spain’s most fashionable wine region - are unreconstructed blockbusters:
huge structure, heady plum fruit, hoofing alcohol content.

2012/13 Vi de Vila Porrera Priorat
Price: £19.99 
Bin No. SP17


The Guelbenzu family are probably the greatest makers of wine in the Navarra region. The Azul is made from the Tempranillo grape
and aged for 9 months in French and American oak whereas the stunning Evo is a blockbuster red that is made predominantly
from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape after 12 months aging in French oak barriques.

Rest of Spain


Castillo La Paz Tempranillo is an award-winning rich red from one of La Mancha’s top wineries. Two superb wines on the list
Calandria Prieto Picudo
(not a grape that I had ever heard of!) comes from the north-east of Spain and has an elegance and soft
red fruit; Set Tota La Vida is an astonishing red packed with dark cherry fruit and a hint of mocha made from Garnacha, Syrah
and Mazuelo (Carignan) in the fabled Monsant region to the south of Priorat in Catalonia.
