GOODMAN: review of the Spanish wine collection
Spain is famous for the ancient history of winemaking and can compete with France and Italy for the world leadership in the wine production. In fact, Spain is the largest wine region in the world, with a vineyard area of over 1 million hectares, but not record production level, with an average of 20 hectoliters per 1 hectare.
Huge area under vineyards and varied climate of the country allow Spain to produce a variety of wines with unique tastes. The most well-known Spanish wine regions, producing top-quality wines are Rioja and Priorat (these are so-called Vinos con Denominaciones de Origen Calificadas, DOCa/DOQ).
Vasil Negin, our talented sommelier, this week introduces the steak-house GOODMAN guests to the most outstanding representatives of Spanish wines from our wine list.
As an aperitif I would like to mention Jeres (sherry) Fino by Alvaro Domecq, the wine has a bright straw color with a sharp and delicate bouquet, filled with various nuances, which reveals the characteristic tones of flair, almonds, apple with a balanced buttery taste. Sherry is dry and spicy, it is in harmony with fish and meats, vegetable and spicy soups.
Exquisite, refined Reserva Raiza (Rioja) by Vincent Gandia is a wine for special occasions. In the aroma of wine are felt balsamic tones, tones of vanilla and berries. The flavor is delicate, balanced. Finish is fruit and mineral. It goes well with red meat and game meat.
Immaculate Pago de Los Capellanes from Ribera del Duero is recommended to serve with lamb and steak. Balanced taste of the wine is filled with strong ripe tannins. In the palette you can find the notes of ripe fruit, berry jam, wood and spicy notes of smoke and coffee.
You are welcome to taste the above-mentioned and all the variety of wines from the extensive wine collection of steak-house GOODMAN!
