Spain is reinventing itself a very different place from where it was 20 years ago. Even in Rioja, which has held fast to its traditional winemaking methods, is producing wines a little fruitier with more balanced oak. Winemakers all over the country are giving a fresh face to many hitherto relatively unknown regions a few years ago. In that spirit, I have selected 4 wines embracing both traditional and modern styles for our next tasting.
From the Ribera del Duero we will taste Moro’s 2006 Tempranillo. Close to the Mediterranean is the wine region of Priorat and the home of Melis 2005 Elix, a Garnacha blend. Going east to Jumilla, the third red will be Bodegas Oliveras, 2008 Altos de la Hoja, a Monastrell.
Our fourth wine will be a surprise. You will have to come to find out! Join us Wednesday, February 16, from 6-8 pm. at the Boiler Room in Omaha.Pages
