Impressions of Spain

September 18, 2013

Few countries offer the range and diversity of grapes, regions and styles that mark the wine map of Spain. In the past 12 months, Wine Spectator has reviewed more than 1,000 Spanish wines—from crisp, minerally whites to big, ripe reds, along with lively sparklers, refreshing rosés and complex Sherries. (See our tasting report in the Oct. 15 issue.) While the country's stalwart producers and regions consistently produce the most exciting wines, an explorer could happily wander the back roads and never drink the same wine twice.
