    Winemaker Notes

    This crisp, clean wine exemplifies what has made Verdejo a value powerhouse of the new unoaked style favored by millennials and Gen Xers. With aromas and flavors of green apple, pear, mango and a touch of honey, this wine is well balanced with refreshing acidity, making it an ideal apéritif or accompaniment for hors d'oeuvres, salads, vegetarian dishes and seafood.

    Camina, Spain
    Camina Winery Image
    Camina, a label under Bodegas Cristo de la Vega, is located in the heart of the La Mancha appellation, in the small village of Socuellamos. Bodegas Cristo de la Vega was founded in 1955 by 25 vine growers. Over the last decade, the winery has invested heavily in high-tech equipment to precisely control every step of the winemaking process from harvest to bottling to ensure quality vintage after vintage.

    La Mancha is located on a plateau in central Spain and is one of the largest and oldest winemaking regions in the world, starting in Roman times. La Mancha has an extreme continental climate. Summer daytime temperatures regularly exceed 104 degrees F but drop dramatically as darkness falls. Winters are cold, with sub-zero temperatures and frequent frosts. The finest vineyard areas in La Mancha are those with high limestone and chalk content in the sub-soil. These semi-porous stones retain precious moisture and help to even out the vines’ water supply. 3,000 hours of sunshine a year ripens the grapes without difficulty.

    White grapes are used in two famous types of Spanish wine, Sherry and Cava, but we will limit this discussion to still whites. Let’s begin with perhaps the best known and most highly regarded internationally, Albariño . Produced in the region of Rías Baixas, just above Portugal in northwestern Spain, Albariño typically sees no or little oak and is medium to medium-plus in body. Aroma and flavor notes often include citrus and peach, often with subtle floral notes and a suggestion of sea spray, giving the wine a zesty feel. Often bottled as a single varietal, Albariño is sometimes blended with other indigenous grapes like Loureira and Treixadura. Try one of these Spanish whites from Forjas del Salnes.

    Let’s look at a few other Spanish white wines. Godello also hails from northwestern Spain and presents a profile of grapefruit, minerality and a slight smoky quality. Enjoy a bottle from Bodegas Avancia. The region of Rueda, northwest of Madrid, is home to Verdejo , which makes refreshing, un-oaked white wines whose herbal vibrancy recalls Sauvignon Blanc . Protos makes a tasty version. Up north in the Basque region, we find the wine called Txakoli (sometimes called Txakolina). Pronounced “sha-ko-LEE,” it’s made from a local grape called Hondurrabi Zuri and is light, fresh, citrusy, dry … and with razor sharp acidity that makes it a fantastic partner with local seafood and tapas. Ameztoi Gertariako is a good Spanish white wine producer to check out.

    The Penedѐs region, best known for the oceans of delicious Cava it sends to the world, also produces still Spanish whites, sometimes from international varieties like Chardonnay , and often from the same grapes used for Cava. These include Parellada, Xarel-lo and Macabeo. Avaline produces a fine example of Penedes white. Finally, we visit the Rioja region. While it is historically and internationally famous for its reds, Rioja also produces fine Spanish white wines. These are usually based on Viura (the local name for Macabeo) and make good everyday sippers, although some aged versions can be stunningly complex. A good place to start is the white Rioja from Bodegas Muga.

    As you can see, Spanish white wines offer a vast opportunity for exploration!
