Spanish Wine Fame

Catalunya and the rest of Spain really benefit from the fabulous sunshine.  The product of this being extensive vineyards that blanket the local countryside. A wide variety of wines and cavas are produced from these vineyards.

The reputation of Spanish wine has been changing quite dramatically over recent years. There was a time when Spanish wine meant cheap ‘plonk’, and the only Spanish vintage to have any international acclaim was Rioja.

However, these days, Spain has many different wine-growing areas, producing an extensive range of increasingly high-quality wines.

Mediterranean Grapes

For those savvy wine connoisseurs of you out there you’ve probably heard of some of the Mediterranean grape varieties which are amongst the best in Catalunya.  Amongst the red grapes, these are the Garnacha and the Carignan, and white grapes varieties are the Garnacha Blanca and Xarel-lo amongst the white grapes.

The heavy-weights grapes of; Tempranillo, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon area are also harvested throughout Catalonia, in addition to the white varieties of Macabeo and Parallada, which are also used for making the infamous Spanish sparkling wine, ‘cava’.

Catalonian wines tend to be full-bodied and high in alcohol, due to the region’s Mediterranean weather ­conditions and the varieties of grapes. But Catalonia’s best wines also feature ­intense mineral properties due to some vineyards being planted on granite, chalk, and fractured slate soils.
