Bodegas Tamaral Crianza 2015, Ribera Del Duero Spain
Bodegas Tamaral is located in the Ribera Del Duero, Spain. Founded in 1997 with four generations of winemakers in the family, the estate has been producing many top quality wines. Tempranillo is the grape of the region. Here it is picked and exposed to a long maceration period to extract as much colour and fruitiness as possible. It is then aged in both American and French oak barrels to enhance the complexity of the wine and make the resulting wine as soft as possible..

La Xispa Selecció 2017, Terra Alta Spain£29.50 More info & buy It is reserved at first, then after a little aggravation in the glass it is clear that this is a special wine. It's ripe but never juicy, rich but never heavy. Clever winemaking indeed. Only 175 cases were made in 2017 and La Xispa offers balance, length and complexity well above its price point.
