Old name for white wines with madeirisiertem
Clay (Madeiraton) or oxidative Sherryton
, It is probably derived from the Spanish "Spaniōl" for a known snuff brand. Produced from the year 1800 in the snuff factories of Seville, this tobacco was prepared from ground-grinded Havana leaves, spiced with various spices and dyed with red soil. The Spaniol had the typical taste of oxidatively developed wines after tobacco and dried fruit. It was marketed throughout Europe and quickly became immensely popular. But it could also simply be a corruption of "espagnol" (Spanish), because wines with such a taste are usually associated with "come from Spain".
