Some great Spanish wines reviewed in the current edition of Decanter Magazine:

Clos Mogador Priorat 2016 (92/100) – “Full of rich fruit with a balancing layer of savoury oak. Has chalky and rigorous tannins, yet it’s taut and imposing in character overall.” We still have some of the 2015 left, which is even better!

Mas La Mola Priorat 2016 (91/100) – “Luscious, polished and appealing, the Garnacha giving a burnished charm to the wine. Baskets of flowers and red berries with a long, vivid finish.”

La Bascula Casta Diva Moscatel Dulce Alicante 2013 (92/100) – “An expert in Moscatel, Felipe Gutiérrez de la Vega made the wine for the king of Spain’s wedding feast. This bottling is based on that astonishing, golden original, small quantities of which are bottled as Reserva Real.”

Suertes del Marques 7 Fuentes Canary Islands 2016 (92/100) – “A superb introduction to the wild joys of Tenerife reds, this Listán Negro and Tintilla blend is as light, feathery and red fruited as Pinot Noir, with herbs, pepper and a compulsive drinkability.”

4 Kilos Vinicola 12 Volts 2017 Mallorca (91/100) – “Ex Anima Negro winemaker Francesc Grimalt and musician Sergio Caballero’s exciting project always hits the spot with this blend of local and international varieties (Callet, Fogoneu and Syrah). Dark berry fruit is lifted by spicy freshness.” We still have some of the stunning 2016 in store.

Celler del Roure Safrá, 2018 Valencia (91/100) – “A classic ‘vino de sed’ or ‘vin de soif’. Made from 100% Mando, it’s juicy with lovely acidity. Drink it cool, perfect with sausages. Grown organically, fermented and aged in tinajas (amphorae) buried underground.”
