I liked this wine because it’s an authentic example of the variety. It offers a very unique and expressive bouquet with lots of herbal notes, citrus, almonds, grass and green apple. In the mouth, there is a hint of bitterness and a refreshing acidity, both giving a very interesting tasting experience in the palate. This uniqueness and rusticity is very appreciated if you look for a different white to wake all your senses up! It can perfectly match chicken, fishes and pasta with any savoury creamy sauce.
(By Marina La Forgia) Among the wonderful Spanish grape varieties, the Albariño has found in the Galician Rias Baixas appellation one of its best terroirs. If you don’t believe me, here you have a great example! I got absolutely seduced by this 100% Albariño from Bodegas Millenium - Bodegas Gallegas which has everything you can expect for a unique and delicious dry, fresh and aromatic white. All the typical white fruit notes such as pear, apple and peach are very present in the nose and they become smooth and enveloping in the mouth. All this fruity character is complemented by a refreshing acidity and a particular hint of minerality, becoming a very delicate and interesting wine to taste. If haven’t done yet, and if your budget at SAQ stores is less than 16 CAD, this is the kind of Spanish blanco that worth discovering! It can superbly accompany a sea food paella or a simple but multiple savory tapeo apetizer.
(By Marina La Forgia) What a perfect white to pair with the freshness of pure Canadian winters! Happy to discover this certified organic wine from Spain (La Mancha) made by Bodegas Latué which will be available at SAQ stores only and exclusively for 3 months . For its price (less than 10 CAD), I was gladly surprised and seduced by the expressive floral parfum of the Airen in the nose and the crispy acidity of Sauvignon Blanc in the palate. This nice blend is round, generous and easy drinking. Don’t miss it out. It’s a great white for starters! Salud!
