A charming Galician Albariño!


(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.

Wine by Nature, naturally great!



(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!

Did you say Spanish Organic Monastrell?



(By Marina La Forgia) Made with only organic grapes, this wine from Bodegas Luzon is a must try! This genuine and concentrated red has  the authentic expression of unique Montastrell variety, which has found in Spanish appellation Jumilla one of its perfect terroirs. With strong and generous black fruits and spices notes in the nose, as well as in the palate, don't hesitate in letting it breath a little bit in the glass to extract the best characteristics. Vegan friendly and very affordable (available at SAQ for less than $15), is the kind of wine to go beyond the great value sky of Spanish traditional tintos! Salud!
