An amazing red wine made by Bodegas Borsao in Campo de Borja using a superb blend of Grenache, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Colour:This wine has a very clear appearance with an intense cherry
red colour with touches of violet.
Nose:On the nose a deep aroma of ripe berries with floral tones comes through.
Taste:On the palate it is a full bodied wine with pleasant tannin in perfect harmony with its acidity giving a wine that is rich shades of red berries with spicy undertones that are typical of a quality Garnacha.
Spaniche Wines Malta’s first own label wine, our first vintage.
This red wine has been designed especially for warm climates, a red wine that is very easy to drink, very fruity and can be served slightly chilled if need be. If you love your red wines but think that it being summer means you can’t enjoy them anymore, try this. Maro Carinena Tinto 2018 is a blend of 70% Garnacha and 30% Tempranillo.
No oak, just very smooth and easy to drink. As one of our regular customers says, it is a wine that just keeps giving!
Colour: A beautiful garnet
Nose: Highly aromatic with ripe, pure blackcurrant and blackberries.
Taste:The palate is super juicy with the same black clustered fruit and a lick of floral tones. Smooth and elegant tannin, medium-bodied and well integrated. The finish is semi scented with fruit and a touch of spice. All in all totally smashable. Serve at cellar temperature, around 18 degrees for full enjoyment.
Laus Tinto Barrica, is an aged red wine from Bodegas Laus in the region of Somontano, using Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah and rested in mixed oak barrels (staves of American oak and French oak bottoms) for five months.
Colour:Red wine of intense cherry red colour, with purple and red nuances that mark its youth.
Nose:Full and intense nose. Highlights aromas of red fruits with a touch of nuts (hazelnuts, roasted almonds), smoked, toffee and spices.
Taste:In the mouth it highlights its soft and fruity attack. Wide and sweet step in the mouth, where we find toast, spices, cloves and a sweet and soft tannin that leaves a very pleasant aftertaste.

A newsletter is a regularly distributed publication generally
Spaniche Wines Malta has been established since 2017 and in that time has expanded and diversified its operation from solely importing Spanish wines, to now importing and distributing wines, spirits, beers and mixers. One thing hasn’t changed though, we insist on finding quality at good prices which we can then pass on to our clients.
Spain undoubtedly produces the best wines in the world when it comes to quality versus price. There are cheaper wines on the market, that is for sure, but when you compare the quality, Spanish wines are head and shoulders above the rest. As an example, try a bottle of Maro Carinena 2018 for €7.
The wines come from small, mainly family-run wineries in different regions such as Ribera del Duero, Navarra, Rioja, Priorat, Rueda, Rias Baixas and a few more.
Our mission is to offer the most comprehensive range of Spanish wines in Malta and Gozo. We already import the largest number of gins on these islands, along with three ranges of tonic waters and mixers to complement each gin.
