El Escocés Volante
Literally translated as ‘the flying Scotsman’, El Escocés Volante is the brainchild of Spanish resident and Scottish winemaker Norrel Robertson MW. He learned working from the cellar up, including placements in Chianti, Portugal, Australia, France and Chile, eventually completing a postgraduate viticulture and oenology course at Lincoln University in Christchurch, New Zealand, graduating with distinction.
Norrel produces wines from across some of Spain's more obscure wine regions: his speciality is garnacha, in particular from Calatayud, but he also makes excellent wines in Galicia, Murcia and Andalucía.

I can never consider serious garnacha without a reference to El Escocés Volante – Scottish winemaker Norrel Robertson MW – who here combines garnacha with syrah and mazuelo...I can never consider serious garnacha without a reference to El Escocés Volante – Scottish winemaker Norrel Robertson MW – who here combines garnacha with syrah and mazuelo (carignan) in Calatayud, where his talents are probably best known currently. Dark with minty aromas, [this] brings us smooth cherry and raspberry flavours with traces of allspice and cola density, limited tannin, good acidity and attractive all-round richness.
