British 'Masters of Wine' choose their favourite Spanish white wine...
22 November 2019 @ 09:41

The recent London-based Wines from Spain Awards 2019 have just revealed the top 100 favourites among British experts – and three whites have been given prizes.

During a blind testing, oenologists or 'Masters of Wine', as they are known in the UK, including Tim Atkin, Peter McCombie, Richard Hemming and Victoria Burt, named three brands from as many bodegas from the 2018 crop.

And one of them is available 'on tap'.

The white which won 'best value for money' is the Castelo de Medina Verdejo 2018, from the Castelo de Medina wine merchants' and using the Verdejo grape variety.

'Best newly-discovered' white was Pansa Blanca 2018, from the Raventós de Alella bodega.

And best premium white was Malvasía Seco Colección 2018, which comes from the oldest wine merchants' in the Canary Islands – Bodegas El Grifo, in Lanzarote.

'El Grifo' translates as 'the tap', meaning the range known as 'El Grifo Seco' effectively means 'dry tap', but there is plenty of it flowing – it is one of the most-exported Spanish wines to the UK and is well-known throughout the Canary Islands and the mainland.
