Albariño

Sea-fresh to sea-fish

from the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula. In addition to a floral scent and flavours of orange, citrus, peach and green apple, these wines often present a slightly iodine note. It is actually preferably drunk in its homeland with seafood: in Spanish Galacia with octopus, blue mussels or "percebes" (goose barnacles), which resemble little elephant feet and are fished by locals risking their lives on the Atlantic surf. Across the border in Portugal, the Alvarinho grape, as it is called there, is the main actor in the summer wine Vinho Verde. This pairs best with grilled sardines and the national fish, bacalhau. Albariño is traditionally enjoyed from flat clay cups.

Rias Baixas: with the crispness of the cool Atlantic

Whenever the Spanish wine country is mentioned, one usually thinks first of full, fruity red wines with a Mediterranean charm. In the Rias Baixas, however, on Spain’s north-western tip, distinctly crisp white wines result from the influence of the cool Atlantic. These are mainly vinified from the Albariño variety, but also from Treixadura, Loureira and Godello. The fruity crus harmonize splendidly with fish dishes and also with Asian cuisine.

Galicia: shaped by the cool Atlantic

Situated in the far northwest of the Iberian Peninsula, Galicia is like a tip which pushes west toward the Atlantic Ocean, north of Portugal. In keeping with this exposed location, wines made here, with their fresh, straightforward character, depart strikingly from the general style of Spanish wines. With four cultivation areas with DO status, Galicia is drawing noticeably more international interest. White wines from autochthonous varieties are mostly produced here.

Spain – Variety and perfection

“Somewhere in la Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember...,” begins Don Quixote's odyssey.

The most famous part is definitely when Don Quixote thinks windmills are his enemy and wants to fight them – until they nearly kill him. It’s possible there was a bit too much of the La Mancha wine at play. Spanish vines fight for their survival in rugged landscapes, battling fierce drought and rough soils. But they fight well.
