Spain has dozens of wine regions stretching throughout the country in every direction. And as many regions that exist, there are just as many wine styles - ranging from opulent to staunchly traditional. Many modern Spanish wines focus on accentuated fruit and the overt oak influence of new casks. Other producers prefer a style that captures the profile of indigenous grapes - where the influence of new oak is much less pronounced. These wines tend to reflect a region’s climate and soil as much as the winemaker’s own production methods. The most traditional Spanish wines celebrate local grapes, natural yeasts, soil-types, and distinct terrain as opposed to any particular style a winemaker would otherwise impose - besides the intense physical work required in the vineyards. With its wide spectrum of wine styles, Spain offers up the best of both worlds - Old and New.
