POTENT: Cadiz’s Vara y Pulgar complements meat and bean dishes

The Granito de Cadalso is made from grapes grown on granite slopes to the west of Madrid. Described as ‘lively and vibrant,’ a bottle can be picked up just under €17.

The grapes that make up the Grancanario Fronton de Oro are cultivated on high terraced vineyards in the Canary Islands. A bottle can be got hold of for just over €15 and it sits nicely alongside red meats like lamb.

The Cadiz Vara y Pulgar is the most expensive of the Spanish wines on the list, coming in at just over €17. It originates in the Andalucian region of Cadiz, an area better known for its sherries than wines. Juicy but potent, it complements hearty meat or bean stews.
