Terroir is how a particular region’s soils, aspect (terrain), and climate impact the taste of wine. The wine will have a unique taste and specific aroma based on the environment. Some regions are said to have more ‘terroir’ than others such as Rioja, Cava, and Jumilla.
The secret of Spanish wine
Rioja is a famous region of wineries in Spain. The region is best known for producing red wine, but historically it was known for their white wines. However, one of Rioja’s unique hallmark is the wine’s classification by length of ageing wine in oak.
Rioja makes wine from 5 red and 9 white approved grape varieties. With a traditional style of wine-making, they use French and American oak barrels. Then wait for a long time until it’s ageing perfectly. Can you imagine the taste of wine which has the effect of terroir and is aged in oak?
One of the brands that can bring this privileged Spanish wine is Barón de Ley, a winery located in Rioja. The winery’s history is steeped in tradition, it is located in a 16th Century Monastery where the Benedictine Monks made wine over 500 years ago. Awarded twice as “Spanish Producer of the Year” by the UK-based IWSC, it specialises in Reserva and Gran Reserva wines.
