2017 to be a vintage year for wines made in Spain

Mallorca wine

CONNOISSEURS  of Spanish wines can mark 2017 down as a vintage year.

Not only will stocks arrive two to three weeks earlier but the wines will be more alcoholic and of a higher quality, say experts.

However, due to soaring temperatures and less rain, there will be less vino to go around, meaning prices are likely to be higher.

“The high temperatures and the drought have caused an accelerated maturation of the fruit,” explained Antonio Camacho, President of Corporación Vinoloa.

“There has also been a more personalised treatment in each plot to ensure quality,” he added.
