Albamar 2020 Rias Baixas Albariño

Xurxo Alba is making a number of expressions of Albariño and other local Galician grapes in Cambados, in the Rías Baixas DOC in Galicia. His farming and winemaking are innovative and experimental, as he pursues organics and biodynamics in this challenging climate, ferments his wines exclusively with native yeasts, and adds little to no sulfur during production. This is an extremely Atlantic-influenced area, and the wines show that influence clearly. The entry level cuvée is made from grapes sourced from multiple sites with mainly sandy soil. The fruit from each parcel is vinified separately (some in stainless steel, some in barrels) gaining structure and complexity of flavor from six months spent on the fine lees. This is a very good, classic expression of Albariño with plenty of saline minerality and joyous notes of stone-fruit and sea air.  -BF

Bodega Cauzon 2020 Cortes y Graena (Granada) Cauzon

Ramón Saavedra produces this Tempranillo from high altitude (800-1000m) vineyards in the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Granada. Ramon's approach is to emphasize freshness and intensity of fruit character through short maceration times and vinification in stainless steel. Here, the result is a wine with animal, garrigue, and red fruit notes on the nose. The palate is alive and changing: look for black cherry, red raspberry, game, and a pronounced mineral finish. There's body here and some nice, friendly tannins balanced by tense acidity that makes this wine gastronomically very friendly.  -BF

Bodegas Akutain 2015 Rioja Crianza

Akutain is an estate that we have fallen in love with here at Chambers Street. The Riserva and Gran Riserva were revelations for us, and this Crianza is the perfect prelude, truly resembling a Riserva in style. Mostly Tempranillo with some Garnacha, indigenous yeast fermentation, and aging for 1 year and 9 months in old oak and 1 year in bottle.  Leathery tannins, elegant, earthy tones, all around a total winner, and sure to be your new favorite Rioja, especially at this price point. -EL

Bodegas Akutain 2018 Rioja

Juan Peñagaricano Akutain worked at CVNE and La Rioja Alta before planting his own vineyard in Rioja Alta in 1975. Ever since, he and his son, Jon Peñagaricano, have sought to produce classicly styled Rioja wines at a smaller scale, sourcing grapes from their own plots, which they work without chemicals and harvest by hand. Since 2015 they have produced this wine, a Cosecha (unaged) Rioja, fermenting Tempranillo and a little bit of Garnacha in fiberglass and resting the wine in the same container before bottling without fining or filtering. The 2018 shows the terroir of Rioja Alta without any distractions: it is a wine of pure fruit and earth. Notes of ripe cherry abound on the nose, interspersed with notes of green tobacco and earth. The palate follows, with similar pretty cherry quality and a long and broad clay-y minerality. This is a cosecha Rioja, without oak or long aging, and as a result it is much lighter than the wines that many think of as Rioja: it is perfectly suited to drinking with a slight chill into the summer.

Bohigas 2020 Catalunya Xarel-lo

The Bohigas family are long-time farmers and winemakers in Catalunya, farming organically and producing sparkling and still wines from the local grape varieties . This still white wine is a great, affordable introduction to one of the most interesting white varieties in Spain: Xarel-lo. Xarel-lo is the most important white grape in the production of Cava and other sparkling wines in Catalunya, and a great grape variety for producing crisp and mineral still wines. The grapes for this wine were harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel before bottling: it is bright, crisp and mineral with notes of salty stone and citrus. A new daily drinker, perfect for  lighter food or just drinking on its own.

Borja Perez Viticultores 2018 Tenerife Artifice Blanco

100% Listán Blanco from multiple parcels in Ycoden Daute Isora (northern Tenerife). Fermented separately, the wine is then aged for 8 months - a portion of the wine in concrete tanks on the lees and the other in 500 liter barrels - before being blended and bottled with minimal addition of sulfur. This iteration of the Artifice Blanco sees some skin contact, which adds subtle structure. Tropical aromatics blend with golden fruit and a touch of nuttiness. These wines just get better and better every year: Borja Perez is definitely one of the most skilled winemakers in the Canary Islands! Eben Lillie and Ben Fletcher

Can Majoral 2018 Pla i Llevant - Mallorca Butibalausi Negre

Can Majoral was the first certified organic estate in Mallorca, and they are among a small group of winemakers who are passionate about preserving local varieties. This medium-full bodied red is primarily made from the Callet grape, which is indigenous to Mallorca (it's possibly a cross between two other indigenous grapes, but the DNA is unique). The rest of the wine is filled out with Syrah, Tempranillo and Montanegro. Though I usually prefer fresh light bodied reds, there are times when the mood calls for something a bit more supple and generous, with black fruit and richness. Butibalausi delivers just that, and with so much elegance and finesse! The tannins are very integrated and subtle, making this a very easy wine to drink, even though it is ripe and full bodied.  Black berries, leather, soil... highly recommended!  -EL

Valle del Rio 2014 is a luxurious single vineyard expression calling forth the image of fresh mountain herbs growing in a thick patch of ripe blackberries.

A treat for lovers of Castellroig, the Rosat is a refreshing rosè sparkling wine made from organically farmed Garnacha and Trepat grapes, fermented with native yeasts, and aged a minimum of 18 months on the lees before disgorgement. A lovely, rosy watermelon hue, dry and frothy, with deep and delicious flavors of raspberry, cranberry, orange rind, sea salt, and Mediterranean herbs.

Cati Ribot / Ve D'Avior 2019 Mallorca Son Llebre Negre

A native of Mallorca, Cati Ribot inherited a plot of old vines and has begun to produce wines from local indigenous grapes on the island. This is majority Callet, with Escursac, Callet Negrello. The evidence of the volcanic soils is clear here, with lovely smoky notes and great mineral length. Several of our favorite winemakers from Spain, among them Oriol Artigas, have helped Cati with her project, advising with vinification, as she was intent on making natural wines with minimal or no added sulfur. We have been thoroughly impressed with her first vintage that reached the US, and are looking forward to many more to come! -EL

Celler del Roure 2019 Valencia Cullerot Blanco

Celler del Roure is making very interesting wines  with local grape varieties in the Valencia area. Many of these old, indigenous varieties are largely forgotten and Cullerot highlights three of them (Verdil, Tortosina, and Merseguera) together with Pedro Ximénez, Macabeo, Malvasía,  and others. In addition to their focus on indigenous grape varieties, Celler del Roure is employing traditional vinifications methods: hand harvesting, fermenting with native yeasts in stone lagars, and aging in very old clay amphorae. Cullerot has a bit of skin contact, and is medium bodied with notes of stone fruit, tropical notes, apple skin, and clay-y minerality.  - Ben Fletcher

Envinate 2020 Tenerife Benje Blanco

Listán Blanco from high elevation (1000-1200m) vineyards on the sunny, dry and continental north-west side of Mount Teide, near the town of Santiago del Teide. The vineyard was planted 70-100 years ago, and the soils are sandy and volcanic. All grapes are harvested by hand and a small subset macerate on the skins for about seven days. The grapes are fermented with native yeasts, mostly in concrete, with a small percentage of used French oak, some of the wine ages under flor for several months. 2020 was the earliest harvest ever for this wine, due to heat in the area, but depth is here, without any sense of under-ripeness. A great success, given the challenges of the vintage!  -EL

Fedellos do Couto 2018 Ribeira Sacra Conasbrancas

 "Conas brancas?" means "what to do about the whites?," referring to old vines of white grapes that were planted among the Mencia and Merenzao vines in the vineyards worked by Fedellos do Couto. For many years these grapes were too abundant to blend into the red wines, but not vigorous enough to bottle on their own. Eventually, this bottling became the answer: a field blend of Godello, Dona Blanca, Albariño, Treixadura, Lado, and Torrontes that reflects the terroir and the local white varieties of Ribeira Sacra. About 75% of the grapes are fermented whole cluster, then macerated on their skins for 40 days, while the Godello is pressed into old barrels. Finally, these are blended to produce a vibrant medium-bodied wine  with notes of beeswax and pear but also salinity and bright acidity. This would be well-suited to the table at Thanksgiving, a friendly, medium-bodied white wine to pair with roast potatoes, stuffing, or mushrooms.  -BF

This 100% Tempranillo wine from Ribera del Duero is a fantastic value from  Demeter certified Biodynamic vineyards.  Coming from vines aged between 10- and 20-years-old, the wine is aged 80% in stainless steel and 20% in oak. This is a classic, fuller-bodied expression of warm climate Tempranillo: dark fruit, earth, a bit of leather and medium tannins are in balance with freshness and some herbal character. A great wine for a party of with steak or lamb.

Ignios Orígenes 2018 Tenerife Ycoden Daute Isora Vijariego Negro

This special red comes from a revived vineyard at 780m altitude in the shadow of Mount Teide  on Tenerife, planted to the distinctive local Canary Island variety Vijariego Negro (better known to Spanish wine lovers as Sumoll). Vineyards were planted in 2006, and grapes are destemmed, with wine being aged 13 months in used barrels. Truly a treat on the nose and the palate, with notes of spicy red and black berries, savory herbs, "Tenerife funk," and a dense underpinning of mineral-infused volcanic earth. A really elegant, albeit young, wine. Should age beautifully, given its tannic structure and mineral depth. Years ago, Borja told our colleague Ariana Rolich that this vineyard would soon produce his top wine. Though the Baboso is a pretty unforgettable red, this bottling of Vijariego is beginning to prove his words true!   -EL

La Perdida (Nacho Gonzalez) 2019 Valdeorras A Chaira

A Chaira is entirely Doña Blanca from the old O Chao vineyard that Nacho Gonzalez has been working since 2013. The vines are old and low-yielding, planted on steep slopes. The Doña Blanca grapes for A Chaira are harvested separately, ferment with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, then age in tinaja, the traditional local amphora. This year's A Chaira has a deeply mineral cast. The nose shows granitic spice and citrus fruits, while the palate has abundant bright mineral texture and notes of lime, apple, mountain herbs, and salt. This is probably the leanest and brightest of the white or orange wines from Nacho Gonzalez this year, and may, as a result, need the most time to harmonize and flesh itself out in bottle. I'd like to check on it in 6 months: my guess is that this wine will fill out with some resting time and show more white fruit and spice.

La Perdida (Nacho Gonzalez) 2019 Valdeorras O Poulo

O Poulo is the biggest and boldest of Nacho Gonzalez's red wines. 95% Garnacha Tintorera, with 5% Palomino,  this is a dark and brooding natural wine. The grapes come from a small, old vineyard near Larouco, the grapes were destemmed, then cofermented in a single 400L open-top tinaja, before pressing into an old 400L French oak barrel to rest for a year. Production is tiny. In the glass, the wine is nearly ink-black, but the nose shows great promise: smoke, pork fat, blackcurrants and granitic spice. The palate is structured with tannins and acidity wrapped around a cooling, granite minerality. The fruit here is a bit restrained at the moment, but my experience with the wine in other vintages suggests that this will change: 2018 O Poulo opened in November showed macerated blackberries, plum skin, black pepper and salt. I adore this wine, but I'd wait to open it until those very special aromatics start to emerge: probably about 9 months to a year from now. And don't be afraid to decant.

La Senda (Diego Losada) 2020 Bierzo Tinto 'Vindemiatrix'

Vindemiatrix is Diego Losada’s most affordable and approachable wine, from 7 plots of mostly Mencia on Bierzo’s valley floor (around 500m above sea level). Soils are mostly clay and limestone, and vinification follows Diego's low-intervention approach: hand-harvesting, fermentation and brief maceration in concrete tanks, and then 7 months of resting in the same vessels, and finally racking into bottles. An incredible value from one of the most exciting winemakers in Bierzo! Ben Fletcher

La Senda (Diego Losada) 2019 Bierzo El Aqueronte

El Aqueronte is  a single vineyard red, mostly Mencía (80%), with 20% Grand Noir, a grape that is most likely a cross between Aramon and Petit Bouschet. This area’s soils are mostly clay, but here, at the top of the hill, there is a substantial portion of limestone mixed in. This is the driest and most remote of the vineyards that Diego Losada works with and one of the oldest, with vines averaging 70-90 years.  As with his other wines, Diego bottles without fining or filtering, and there is no sulfur added to wines. El Aqueronte shows notes of dark berries, anise, fresh earth amid other herbal and spice notes. Recently arrived to the US, we recommend letting the wine rest in bottle and drinking in 2022.

The new kid on the block! A skin contact expression from 50-60 year old vines of Messaguera, a local grape from the Alicante region. Maceration is over 4 days, with daily punchdowns, and aging is in stainless steel. Stone fruit and earth on the nose, with nice acidity on the palate, and a touch of texture from the maceration. For a wine with no addition of sulfur, I am thoroughly impressed with how clean and balanced it is. Bravo to Mar and Ignacio. For a relatively young project, there is a lot of promise from this estate. Only 374 bottles produced.  -EL

La Zafra 2019 Alicante Tinto 'Nu'

Of all the fantastic natural wines produced in Spain, Alicante isn't exactly the main player as regions go, but La Zafra is putting Alicante on the map, and crafting fresh, balanced wines from this hot and arid climate. Monastrell is the red grape here, otherwise known as Mourvedre in France. To me, a good Monastrell smells like roasted meat, leather, and hundreds of wild herbs, and this one delivers on every count. Thanks to the Mar and Ignacio's approach - they search for freshness by farming organically and doing short macerations - this is a wine with loads of character ("garrigue" comes to mind), that is a joy to drink at 13% abv. This is truly a red that tastes bigger than it is, and thanks to the lower alcohol, its given us a perfect way to enjoy a "fuller" natural red during these cold months. No sulfur used at any point.  -EL

A tasty, fresh Rosado that is perfect with food, especially hearty Fall and Winter feasts. Maceration is for 1 day, and aging is in stainless steel. The big detail is that this is Monastrell from Alicante, so there's color and so much character, especially for a rosé, and thanks to the careful touch of the winemakers Mar and Ignacio, nothing seems over the top. To some degree, this shouldn't even be in the rose category, as it's much more savory and "light red" in style, but why not! No sulfur is used at any point, but I would have never guessed from tasting. Only 598 bottles produced. -EL

Oriol Artigas 2018 Alella La Rumbera Blanco

Oriol Artigas organically farms 7.5 hectares of very old vines in Alella, just north of Barcelona. His approach in the vineyard is  low-impact, influenced by biodynamics: he does not do much pruning, encourages the growth of supportive plants among the vines, and follows the lunar calendar. La Rumbera comes from a selection of vineyards of old-vine Pansa Blanca, which are hand-harvested together. The grapes are destemmed, crushed, and allowed to ferment with 20% skin inclusion in stainless steel. There's no use of additives or sulfur in Oriol's small, manually operated cellar. The resulting wines are full of character: influenced by the chalk soils and marine air, and showing a slight skinsy body, there's a tension between textural richness and mineral-driven freshness. The 2018 vintage shows a delicate touch, with the palate and the nose highlighting the salt, sea air, and chalky mineral character of Pansa Blanca, with just a touch of citrus.  Ben Fletcher

In this case, the Crianza comes from the El Codo, El Llano” and Finca Iscorta vineyards, from vines of mainly Tempranillo with small plantings of  Garnacha and Graciano interspersed.  The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and fermented with native yeasts before aging for two years in used American Oak barrels, then bottled unfined and unfiltered and rested for an additional 18 months before release. This shows all of the most classic Rioja characteristics: red fruit, dill, earth and toasted wood. Ben Fletcher

This wine, from Vera de Estenas in Utiel-Requena (near Valencia) shows the fresh and joyful side of plummy Bobal at a great price.
