T he Cork & Flame newsletter this week provided a bit of education: “One of the things that makes Spanish wine special is that many Spanish wineries age the wine for you, in oak barrels and in the bottle. This means you get a chance to taste cellared wines that have aged to the point of tasting their best without investing in storage space at home. When you look at a Spanish wine and see the terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva, or Gran Reserva, they’re telling you about how long the aging was: those Gran Reservas have been cellared the longest, and a bottle with ‘Joven’ on the label didn’t spend nearly as much time resting at the winery.” Now’s you chance to educate yourself with some Spanish wines.
