Somontano, Spain

Buy Now:


As you'd expect, very lush, ripe and generous, with oodles of tropical fruit, honey and juicy peach flavours, and interesting flickers of ginger and lychee on the finish. A fuller white, with buckets of sunny charm!

Try with stir-fried pork in sweet plum sauce or lamb tikka masala.

Glarima Blanco Roble is made from 100% Chardonnay that's matured for 4 months in a selection of French oak barrels. Whenever you see "roble" on a Spanish wine label it means the wine has been aged in wood for a fairly brief period, generally less than 6 months.

Sommos is among Spain's most modern bodegas, from its futuristic main building, which features interlaced cubes, to its 27-metre high winery, which was designed to use just gravity to move wine around, thereby avoiding the damage that traditional pumps cause - Sommos even uses the intelligent Cartesian porta ovis robot ("Explorer Robot") to carry out basic tasks such as filling/emptying barrels, stacking pallets etc! Grapes are harvested during the cool of the night to emphasize the wines' fruitiness.
