Among all the revolutions that have taken place in wine in the last few decades, the most startling is undoubtedly Spain’s. The Spanish wine industry has changed rapidly and comprehensively, moving away from the old emphasis on bulk production and over-oaked reds to embrace new approaches, forge new styles and regions and create a dazzling array of new stars. The main problems for Spanish producers are the heat and the dryness. Irrigation is now permitted and those that can afford it use it to good effect. With such heat, maintaining acidity is vital, so most Spanish vineyards are planted at very high altitudes where they benefit from the cool air. Spain is one of the most exciting, dynamic countries for wine at the moment and it is impossible to single out any one region. Wherever you look, there is always something new to try.
