Spanish term for a young wine (red, rosé and white) marketed in the first year after the harvest and matured only briefly (maximum six months) or not at all (sin crianza) in the barrel. These wines are intended for immediate consumption. Such wines correspond analogously to the French Nouveau (Primeur). See also under Crianza and the wine legislation in Spain.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
