When you think Spanish wine, the first thing that pops into your head is probably something along the lines of Cava and Rioja. And while you there is good reason for that, there are definitely plenty of other Spanish regions to pay attention to. And there is no better place to start than with Ribera del Duero and Goyo Garcia. Goyo comes from a rich winemaking background, but in 2003 he decided to break off and produce his own naturally made wines. He farms single plots in the heart of Ribera del Duero. One of the things that sets him apart is how he plants his vineyards: instead of planting them in different plots separated by  grape varietal, he interplants almost all of his plots with small amounts of white grapes mixed in with the red. His goal is to allow each vineyard plot as opposed to an individual grape variety express itself. He works with very old, traditionally head-pruned vines, with the primary focus at harvest being on acidity. This Joven de Vinas Viejas is a great introduction to Goyo Garcia’s wines. This is one of the few wines he makes that is 100% from one grape variety; in this case, Tempranillo. It is his only unoaked red wine, and comes from high elevation wines, making this a fresh and pretty take on Tempranillo, with the spotlight being on varietal character instead of oak. Grapes are all hand-harvested and fermentation is done with native yeasts in stainless steel. If you’re a Temprnaillo geek and you want one you can drink during the summer, this is your wine.
