1970 was a fabulous vintage in Rioja and the wines received a unanimous thumbs up from critics around the world. It was important because the Spanish wine industry had been struggling and here was their chance to re-establish themselves. Consumer interest in Spain's wines was reignited and it's incredible to think that forty years on we still have the chance to drink the wines that put Spain firmly back on the vinous map.
