In this article, we’ll be looking at 10 affordable Spanish white wines to drink during lock-down. Spain’s aromatic white wines are perfect for springtime. The majority were white, and they were stunningly good: an eye-opening reminder that while Spain may be known best for its red wines, right now there’s tremendous energy and ambition to be found there in the white wine realm, too.
Dominio Del Rey Wine
Domino Del Rey Wine is an elegant effervescent wine that is designed specifically for hotter climates. Unlike most wines, Domino Del Rey Wine is engineered to drink with ice. This wine is produced in the Valdepenas region of Spain which is made by blending fine grapes. It has a light elegant aroma and a smooth strawberry finish.
Castillo Grande is a soft easy-drinking white wine, full of delicious ripe fruit flavors. Excellent taste with carefully selected flavors blended to make the best taste for your pleasure.
Mustiguillo Mestizaje Blanco
Merseguera may be a variety that no one in the U.S. (or even Spain) knows well, but based on this flinty, pear-inflected white from the area near Valencia, people ought to. The wine’s an absurdly good bargain, too.
Herència Altés Benufet Garnatxa Blanca
Peach and melon flavors are lifted by intriguingly exotic herbal notes in this old-vine (very old—up to 100-plus years) white Grenache from Spain’s high-altitude Terra Alta region.
Portal Garnatxa Blanca
The promise of Spain’s Terra Alta region is again evident in this lime-zesty, spicy white. Old vines, limestone soils, dry farming, and no use of oak barrels all contribute to its elegant expressiveness.
Parés Baltà Cosmic
The Xarel-lo grape is one of the three varieties used for Spain’s sparkling Caves, but here, winemakers Maria Elena Jiménez and Marta Casas turn it into crisp and very appealing table wine.
Fillaboa’s gorgeous Rías Baixas estate rolls down to the banks of the Tea and Miño rivers. Winemaker Isabel Salgado takes advantage of that cool, misty climate to fashion this stony, grapefruit-scented white.
Godeval Valdeorras Godello
The name of this Galician region, Valdeorras, translates as a “valley of gold.” Whether or not it was the original idea, that could now apply to the many lightly golden Godello wines—like this lemon-balmy one—made here.
Valdesil Valdeorras Godello Sobre Lías
Valdesil owns the oldest Godello vineyards on earth, some dating back to 1885. With them, they make this fragrant white that is full of apricot, sweet citrus, and lightly earthy notes.
Gaba Do Xil Valdeorras Godello
Winemaking star Telmo Rodríguez helms this project in Valdeorras. Together with young winemaker Jorge Saa, he makes this lightly peppery, poised white from organically farmed Godello grapes.
