How do you approach a tasting with 20 or more different varieties from all across Spain? In our case, with pleasure and anticipation. The aim of this tasting was to showcase the exciting range of native red varieties to discover in Spain. The tasting revealed the mosaic that is Spain: in terrain, in climate and in landscape – and in diversity of varieties.

Our overriding verdict from the tasting is that Spain is the country for explorers. Step outside your usual choices on the wine list, and you will be charmed. Half the wines here scored 90 points or above, and 13 of them were rated Outstanding (see below).
