    La Zorra, Spain
    La Zorra  Winery Image
    The Sierra de Francia, near the Portuguese border due west from Madrid, is an area mostly known for its incredible ham and as a weekend escape for people from Salamanca. Rugged and mountainous, it is a place of incredible beauty. Much of the area is protected as a national park and as a biosphere reserve.

    But the Sierra de Francia also holds another treasure: the Rufete grape, a rare indigenous variety that can also be found across the border in central Portugal.

    This grape is at the heart of the Sierra de Salamanca D.O., a tiny viticultural area and one of the youngest Spanish D.Os, located in the Sierra de Francia mountains. Within this denomination, La Zorra stands out as the most quality-driven, forward-thinking winery.

    Agustin Maillo is dedicated to elevating the native grape of his home to the status it deserves. The owner of a restaurant in the small town of Mogarraz, his family has always made a little wine, but it was only a few years ago that Agustin decided to start working on a commercial scale.

    From 60+ year old vines on granite and slate soils, he carefully crafts three cuvées. The Teso Rufete is designed to show off the characteristics of the grape grown on granitic soils. La Zorra is a 50-50 blend of Rufete and Aragones (the local name for Tempranillo), this blending being typical of the area. And the Teso Blanco has the particularity of being made with Rufete Blanco, a rare old indigenous variety about which very little is known.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

    Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

    Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

    Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

    There are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles.
