K-Naia Verdejo (Rueda)
Since the first vintage in 2004, Bodegas Naia has established itself as one of Rueda’s star producers. Winemaker Eulogio Calleja crafts wines with great depth which, like the striking labels, stand out from the crowd. While most modern Rueda tends to be in a simple, aromatic, technological style, here the maturity of the vines, strict grape selection and extended lees ageing give wines with delicacy, ripe yet restrained stone fruit characters, lovely texture and the ability to age. A nose of pink grapefruit, passion fruit, mandarin oil notes and lightly herbaceous characters. The palate is rich with minerality, racy lime zest acidity and a touch of stone fruit - giving a lovely texture and intensity, and just a touch of fennel on the finish. Fantastic with oily or grilled fish and new potato salads, or shrimps in garlic sauce. See more here
Guelbenzu Vierlas (Ribera del Queilas)
The village of Vierlas lies between Rioja, Navarra and Aragon and in this instance provides a great environment for Syrah vines. The wine is aged in a mixture of French and American oak for 6 months giving rise to flavours of black fruit and tapenade – an unusual yet surprisingly appealing combination. Interesting aromas of black fruit, tar, and an unusual yet appealing black olive character! The palate is vibrant and juicy with more ripe black fruit balanced by spice, toasty oak and bright acidity. Match with pasta and vegetable risotto, or white meats. See more here
Muga Blanco (Rioja)
In Muga, they always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity. To produce each of their wines, they continue opting for traditional procedures: Through the natural process of fining, they eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine. They carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity. They are also the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers. After macerating in the press for around 8 hours, this white wine ferments in new, French oak casks. After fermentation it is left on its lees for a further 3 months until ready for bottling. A lemon-yellow coloured wine with green glints which reveal its youth. On the nose, we find a clean, floral wine which is reminiscent of almond blossom, with citrus notes of American lime and faint underlying toasted nuances. On the palate the wine is fresh with very good acidity and a long finish, wrapping the mouth with reminders of white-fleshed Golden Delicious apples. Perfect match for vegetable dishes, rice, fish and shellfish, tapas. See more here
El Coto Crianza (Rioja)
El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker César Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand-picking into 350 kg crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes. A ruby-red colour and of medium density in appearance, the pleasantly fragrant nose exhibits fresh fruit aromas (strawberries) with touches of vanilla and oaky liquorice hints. Showing great balance on the palate, the wine is silky-smooth on entry and continues velvety, with an agreeable finish. Perfect with grilled lamb or roast beef dishes See more here
Altolandon Mil Historias Bobal (Manchuela)
As the lands start's to rise, inland northwest of Valencia, you will find Roselia Molina heading up Bodegas Altolandon. The property consists of 120 hectares with the winery resting right in the centre, not only making it aesthetically satisfying but also extremely practical. At 1,100 metres above sea level, the altitude serves to benefit the grapes with large diurnal variations which encourage even ripening and also helping retain their natural acidity. Organic methods are used to manage the vines utilising only natural fertilisers and some green pruning to further guarantee the quality of fruit prior to hand-harvesting. The grapes are vinified as naturally as possible with native yeasts and little other intervention. The wines are then aged in French oak and some in clay amphora to retain purity, but build complexity. This Bobal shows distinctive power, vibrant fruit, freshness with soft and ripe tannin. It is spicy and juicy with a well rounded palate with a fascinating crunchy-fruit freshness. The finish is gently tannic combined excellent depth. Best with richly flavoured meat. Roasts, cheeses and cold cuts. See more here

Bodegas La Val are based in Condado do Tea - away from the coast and just over the Portuguese border. Beautiful Albarino fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the lovely stone fruit characters and lean minerality the variety has become famous for, this is a white wine style which is rapidly gaining popularity around the world.
