The Spanish Wine Box
Two incredible Spanish wines, specially selected for their ability to match food this Christmas season.
Monte Xiabre Albariño is a crisp and refreshing white wine from the Rías Baixas region in northwest Spain, made from the Albariño grape variety. It has a bright and pale yellow color with greenish reflections and an inviting aroma of ripe citrus fruits, green apple, and hints of white flowers. On the palate, this wine is light to medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and a refreshing minerality. It has flavours of juicy peach, lemon, and grapefruit, with a touch of salinity that is characteristic of wines from this coastal region. The finish is long and zesty, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Monte Xiabre Albariño pairs well with a variety of dishes, including seafood, grilled vegetables, and light salads. It also makes a great aperitif to enjoy on a warm summer day. This wine is best served chilled to enhance its refreshing qualities.
Rea Costana Reserva meanwhile is a classic Rioja red wine, featuring a deep ruby-red color and a complex aroma of ripe red fruit, vanilla, and spice. On the palate, it offers a medium-to-full body with integrated tannins and a blend of red and dark berry flavors, accompanied by notes of cedar and tobacco. The extended aging process gives it depth and a satisfying, long-lasting finish. It pairs beautifully with roasted meats, lamb, and aged cheeses, making it a fine example of Rioja winemaking tradition.
