About Burgundy Wine in Philippines
spanish wine – red wine
• Valdeorras is a small area in the east of Galicia and its fresh-tasting reds – made from the native Mencia grape – are highly recommended.

• Toro produces extremely powerful reds – using a mutation of Tempranillo.

• Campo de Borja wines – made from the Garnacha grape – must attain a minimum 13% alcohol content, resulting in some stunningly alcholic reds!

• La Mancha – located in arid plains stretching from Madrid to Valdepeñas – produces classy reds from the Cencibel (Tempranillo) grape.

• Valdepeñas is famed for Tempranillo reds that have been cask-aged and labelled “Reserva” or “Gran Reserva”. Oakey and full-flavoured.

• Rioja is one of the best-known areas for wine. Its red wine has a thick, creamy texture and fruity flavour. Grape varieties of this region, production methods and names of wine are too many to list, but a good guide to quality is the length of time matured.

spanish wine – white wine
• Rías Bajas – in the region of Galicia – has a reputation for fragrant, floral, dry white wines produced from the grape variety Albarino.

• Ribeiro – meaning “riverside” – produces excellent whites with strong overtones of orange blossom.

• Rueda produces white wine only – some of Spain´s most agreeable, light dry whites.

• La Mancha also grows the Airen grape, producing a refreshing, lemony white wine.

• Valencia is renowned for its Moscatel de Valencia – a sweet white wine. This wine doesn´t undergo normal fermentation, but is made by adding grape spirit to freshly-pressed Muscat juice.

spanish wine – rosé wine
• Navarre – located on the River Ebor – is know for its fresh, fruity rosada or rosé wine.

• Cigales principally makes dry rosados and a little red, using the two main grapes of Rioja.

spanish wine – sparkling wine
• Penedès – near Barcelona – is the centre of the Cava industry and base for the mighty House of Torres. A prolific region, it also produces a wide variety of good quality red and white wines.

• Asturias is famed for its cider – both sparkling and flat – locals pouring out their cider in a very unique way.

spanish wine – label
• Bottles labelled Joven (Young) are the juniors.

• Crianza is aged for one year in a barrel and one year in a bottle before release.

• Reserva spends one year in a barrel and a further two in the bottle.

. Gran Reserva is aged for a minimum of two years in wood and held in the bottle for three.
You may also notice the initials DO on a bottle.
It stands for Denominación de Origen – literally meaning “Denomination of Origin”, portraying where the wine comes from.
This now has an “upper level” for the very best wines – Denominación de Origen Calificada – or DOCa.
Rioja was the first region declared a DOCa, in 1991.
However, as with everything else in life, the main thing is to choose the one you, personally, like best.
¡Salud! ¡Qué aproveche!
