So, having covered the rest of Spain without much mention of Rioja before the lockdown, I thought I would dedicate this month’s column solely to the best known of the Spanish wines
Hello again, and welcome to the “new normal” – although I have to admit it still seems fairly alien to me
Following on from a look at the white wines of Spain, this time around I’m going to tackle the reds – everything but Rioja which deserves a chapter all of its own
This time around, I thought I would change it up a bit and, instead of talking about one grape variety around the world, focus on wines just from one country – in this instance, Spain
I thought this month I would take a look at Cabernet Sauvignon – for many the king of all red grape varieties
Last time we saw that the higher the ABV, the drier the wine, so let’s look at region styles around the world
This time around I thought I would start to talk about one of my favourite white grapes – Riesling – with some general information in this issue, and some recommended regions and styles in the nextThe Grapevine
This month I thought I would talk about Chenin Blanc. Somewhat overlooked, this grape variety makes a plethora of wine styles, not too dissimilar to Chardonnay in that matter .
Last time I talked about Old World Syrah/Shiraz, and now we’ll look at the brave New World… .
I thought that this time around I would have a look at the mysterious Syrah, or Shiraz, grape.
