"Sum up Spain? Easier to map the movements in a beehive. At the turn of the century, Spain’s vineyards were humming. They still are, with unprecedented investment in the field and especially in bodegas …" - The World Atlas of Wine Sixth Edition, Hugh Johnson & Jancis Robinson

The 2011 Vinas de Gain red is pure Tempranillo from Laguardia made from vines averaging 30 years of age, fermented in open vats and aged in barrique for one year.

Sandeman Royal Corregidor Rich Old Oloroso Sherry Aged 20 Years
Aged 20 years doesn’t really tell the whole story here. Sandeman Royal Corregidor Rare Old Oloroso Sherry is actually based on a solera established in 1894, a prized portion of the legacy and tradition of the House of Sandeman in Jerez de La Frontera. Aromatically intense, Royal Corregidor combines the complexity of old Oloroso with the richness of Pedro Ximenez in splendid balance. Attractive mahogany color; sophisticated aromas that clearly bear close and careful consideration, suggesting a whole range of aromas like roasted nuts, raisined fruit and singed caramel; rich, finely polished, velvety feel in the mouth, just dry with deep and appealing flavors recalling all of its aromatic complexity and stimulating the senses with a long, contemplative finish; for some among us wine-loving souls, this is surely an elixir of almost ethereal proportion.

Lustau East India Solera Sherry
In centuries gone by, casks of sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies as ballast and were found to develop an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style of sherry in the East India Solera wine, an inspired mingling of about 85% aged dry (20 years old) Oloroso with about 15% aged (10 years old) sweet Pedro Ximenez blended then aged an additional 5 years in the warmest part of the bodega, la sacristia. Raisined fruit, candied citrus peel, macerated cherries, caramel and roasted almonds are common descriptors that we might put forward, but somehow there is something left to be described – an ineffable – as if a benevolent form of alchemy were having its way with an already wonderful raw material. Richly textured and flavorful; just sweet; assuages the tongue whilst giving all its wonderful complexity of flavor.
