Some records estimate that over 600 grape varieties are planted throughout Spain but 80% of the country's wine production is focused on only 20 grape varieties. The most widely planted grape is the white wine grape Airén, prized for its hardiness and resistance to drop. It is found throughout central Spain and for many years served as the base for Spanish brandy. Wines made from this grape can be very alcoholic and prone to oxidation. The red wine grape Tempranillo is the second most widely planted grape variety, recently eclipsing Garnacha in plantings in 2004. It is known throughout Spain under a variety of synonyms that may appear on Spanish wine labels-including Cencibel, Tinto Fino and Ull de Llebre. Both Tempranillo and Garnacha are used to make the full-bodied red wines associated with the Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Penedès with Garnacha being the main grape of the Priorat region. In the Levante region, Monastrell and Bobal have significant plantings, being used for both dark red wines and dry rosé. As the Spanish wine industry becomes more modern, there has been a larger presence of international grape varieties appearing in both blends and varietal forms-most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot and Sauvignon blanc. Other Spanish grape varieties that have significant plantings include Cariñena, Godello, Graciano, Mencia, Loureira, and Treixadura.

Dark black cherry colour. Pungent, berry nose with hints of spices and oak. On the palate, the wine is full flavoured but elegant with dominant fruits of wild red, black and blue berries combined with balsamic, cedar wood and well polished soft tannins. Just the right balance of acidity and tannin on the finish to complement the fruit and give the wine...
A lovely pale lemon-gold colour in the glass, Medievo’s Blanco casts classic white Rioja aromas of lime juice, pear, vanilla, smoke and beeswax. Full and waxy on the palate, the Medievo Blanco bursts with notes of lemon curd, pear, and honeysuckle accented by barrel notes of smoke, toffee and vanilla. Full-bodied yet refreshing, the Medievo Blanco...
Lively, deep colour with a touch of deep, violet undertones. Powerful, clean bouquet of cherries, ripe blackberry and blueberry with hints of brioche, mocha, toasted almonds and hazelnuts. These rich red fruit and chocolate notes transfer to a silky smooth, mouth-wateringly juicy rounded palate with soft tannins leaving a fresh aftertaste.
The nose is powerful and unctuous, with well defined dark fruits of cassis and redcurrant. There is a noticeable note of smooth vanilla from the quality oak, with slight chocolate underlying it. The palate is similarly powerful, with dark blackcurrant and a touch of red fruits and a rich, smooth note of mocha coffee and vanilla. The wine is well balanced,...
