I first spotted this producer at El Celler de Can Roca, which has twice been the world's best restaurant, after requesting that they serve me new wines and surprises from Spain.

Máquina & Tabla is the personal project of Oriol Illa and Susana Pastor; they produce wines from old vineyards and local varieties in Bierzo, Toro, Rueda, Gredos and Castilla y León. The wines I tasted over-deliver for the prices asked.

I was particularly taken by one of the new-wave Spanish whites by Máquina & Tabla; Hugely pungent. Despite the long time on skins not remotely aggressively astringent. Honey, spice and absolutely enough acidity. Quite full bodied and with masses of character. This is quintessential new-wave Spanish white.
