(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!
(By Marina La Forgia) Let me introduce you to this very pleasant white wine from Bodegas Ontañon made with Viura, indigenous grape from Rioja. Vetiver is a good mix of terroir expression and winemaking. It combines intense tropical fruits aromas with some buttery and smoky notes that make it very original, onctuous and rich without losing any elegance and delicacy in the palate. Yes, it's a 2014 vintage which means "an aged white", and it really resumes the authentic Rioja style. However, at the same time this Vetiver is an innovative and audacious type of wine that I really loved to discover. It's good to get out of the comfort zone sometimes, wine tasting speaking...right?
