Young wine makers

ANDREW J. LINN

He and his partner, Raúl Acha decided to make a career locally out of ... winemaking. When the Vintae Group came into being at the turn of the century the partners employed unconventional methods to build one of the country's most dynamic bodega conglomerates. As Richi explains, "Sometimes the wine business is boring, so we try to ... communicate through avant-garde presentations and across social media.

Future wine

ANDREW J. LINN

Back in 2002 a US supermarket chain launched a wine known as Two Buck Chuck. The price ($2) was unprecedented, and 800 million bottles were sold. Customers never knew where the wine came from, only that it was made from grapes. WINE OF THE WEEK ... Viña Ardanza Reserva 2009 Possibly one of the best-known 'quality' Riojas, this wine has been around for 75 years, and is from the La Rioja Alta bodega. Unusually for a Rioja it has a high proportion of Garnacha grapes and it is aged in oak for three ... years. Wine Spectator rated its 2005 vintage as one of the world's 100 best wines. Around 20€.

War of the rosés

ANDREW J. LINN

We don't really consider rosé wine as being the real thing. The initial reaction of most dedicated tinto fans, when they see someone drinking rosado, is that there goes an amateur wine drinker. It is usually considered more of an accessory to wine ... culture rather than an essential feature. At least that is the macho view..... WINE OF THE WEEK Los Aguilares Pinot Noir What other wine could feature here this week other than the world-beater from Ronda? The excellent Pinot Noir from Cortijo ... Los Aguilares bodega has beaten every wine (nearly 2,000 in all) in the PN Challenge in Switzerland. It is a grape best suited to cool climates but winemaker Bibi García has pulled off another sensation. Around 26 euros. It is best not to enter into the

The magic key

ANDREW J. LINN

In most wine-producing cultures, the age of a particular red wine is a key element that usually decides its price. There may be differences of opinion about whether a wine could be or could have been at its best, or even past its best, but these are ... more matters of personal taste than factual markers. And anyway Spain is a paradise for those interested in old wines, and websites like eBay, MilAnuncios, and particularly Vinovintagesantander.com are good for hours of surfing in decent company. WINE ... pinot grigio-type wines that are mere shadows of what a full-bloodied rosado should be. From the famous Protos stable, this Ribera del Duero is not to be ignored. Around 6.50 euros. Most people cannot understand why a bottle that contains a wine so old

Our local wine region

ANDREW J. LINN

We on the Coast are very lucky to have Ronda as our nearest wine-growing area. The phylloxera bug wiped out the Malaga vineyards in 1878, and it was not until the arrival of outsiders like Alfonso von Hohenlohe and Frederic Schatz 30 years ago that ... vineyards started to flourish again in the Sierra. WINE OF THE WEEK Chinchilla Doble Doce 2013 From the above-mentioned Doña Felisa bodega in Ronda, this blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon has 15 months barrel-age in French oak. It won a gold medal ... in Paris recently as the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the World. Around 19 euros. Hohenlohe's bodega still exists but is unrecognisable, as is the wine it makes. Schatz's organic varieties are widely acclaimed. Currently there are many bodegas in the

No more Parker points

ANDREW J. LINN

There can be few wine aficionados who have managed to enjoy drinking their own selected wines without the interference of the most notorious critic of all time, Robert Parker. wine of the week: Opta In most of the El Corte Inglés main stores ... the wine department has a section with bottles under ten euros, which is worth exploring. This red from Castilla is made from Tempranillo, Garnacha and Syrah grapes, and is barrel-aged for twelve months. You will certainly not regret spending ten euros ... on it. Parker was a small town lawyer when he discovered he happened to have a good nose for wine, and an early trip to France led him to realise something that in the USA was not obvious back then - food was better if accompanied by wine rather

Michelin muddle

Almendralejo is an Extremaduran town famous for not much, although this excellent, traditionally made wine using Chardonnay grapes, is worth trying. Around eight euros from OpenCor/El Corte Inglés.

Heavy wine

A. J. LINN

In the festive season wine consumption increases, not meaning that we regular drinkers consume more (ahem!), rather that people who would normally pass on it enjoy a glass or three. We do not realise how lucky we are. Wine has been produced for the ... last 6,000 years, but it is only in 3% of that entire period that we have been able to drink it as a refined pleasure. For the previous 97% of those six millennia, wine was drunk not for pleasure, but because water was polluted. Wine, and beer in some ... countries, was the only liquid refreshment, sweet wine being the preferred tipple as it kept longer. Quantities of Bavarian steinwein still exist from 1540, the driest year on record when the Rhine ran dry, and wine was used for building due to lack of water.
