Wines by grape variety
 
Spain has more land under grape cultivation than any other country in the world. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country's wine production is from only 20 grapes; including the reds Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Monastrell; the whites Albariño from Galicia, Godello and Verdejo from Castilla y Leon, and the cava grape Macabeo.

Albariño (Alvarinho) is a green-skinned grape variety native to Galicia on the north Atlantic coast of Spain.

Albillo

 

Albillo is a white wine grape variety grown in northwestern Spain, notably in Galicia. It also grows further to the south and inland towards Madrid, and eastwards in Ribera del Duero where it may also be called Pardina. Although it is, at best, only lightly aromatic, Albillo produces wines with tropical notes and a rich mouthfeel. This makes it useful in blends with thinner Viura, Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains, or aromatic grapes such asVerdejo or Albarino, but it is most commonly used to make single-variety wines. [...]

Alicante Bouschet

 

Alicante Bouschet is a teinturier grape variety widely planted in Spain, Portugal and France, particularly in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. It has a long history in the wine world but lost ground in the later 20th Century in favor of more fashionable international varieties. However, Alicante Bouschet is enjoying a renaissance of sorts, with modern producers making some excellent examples at attractive prices.The variety is a crossing of Petit Bouschet and Grenache, and was first cultivated by viticulturalist Henri Bouschet in 1866.

Bobal

 

Bobal is a dark-skinned wine grape variety native to Utiel-Requena in southeast Spain. It is one of Spain's most planted grape varieties behind Tempranillo and Airen, despite its relative obscurity: Bobal grapes have long been used as a minor blending partner to the region's more glamorous grape varieties. Now, more producers are turning towardvarietal Bobal wines, which are dense and chewy with characters of chocolate and dried berries. [...]

Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir.

It is now the key grape variety in many first-rate New World wine regions, most notably Napa ValleyCoonawarra and Maipo Valley. Wherever they come from, Cabernet Sauvignon wines always seem to demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity and aromas of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices and cedarwood. [...]

Graciano

 

Graciano is a black-skinned wine grape from northern Spain, grown principally in Navarra and Rioja.

A relatively versatile grape, it is used in still, sparkling, dry and sweet wines. There are few universal truths about how Macabeo tastes; the wines can be fresh, floral and aromatic when harvested sufficiently early and aged in stainless steel, but weighty, honeyed and nutty when aged in oak and harvested slightly later.
