Wine Maker Notes
The Spanish Quarter wines capture this spirit of mañana – giving time-honored traditions a modern twist by combining native Spanish grapes with international varietals. The resulting blends are both exotic and familiar – the perfect introduction to modern Spanish wine. As fun to discover as having a friendly Spanish local show you the hidden treasures of his town, or happening upon a once-a-year village festival and being invited to take part. Whether it’s our rich Chardonnay-Albariño, or our silky Cabernet Sauvignon-Tempranillo, our wines are ideal for dinner parties, picnics, or raising a toast to good times and good friends, while putting everything else off until … mañana. ¡Salud!
The Spanish Quarter white grapes are harvested by night to keep the fruit cool and to preserve their aromatics. After harvesting, the grapes are de-stemmed, pressed, and then each variety and lot is sent to separate stainless steel tanks to undergo fermentation. After blending, the wines are kept in tanks until bottling to retain their full fruit character and aromas.
