Spanish Wine - Wines of Northwest Spain
Northwestern Spain is for white wine lovers. Particularly good white wines from the region are made from Albariño and Verdejo grape varieties.

If you like Riesling, you'll love Albariño— a Spanish wine made from a grape of the same name. It's aromatic and crisp yet delicate, reminiscent of green apples and herbs, and resonates with layers of other flavors such as coconut and pineapple depending on the winemaker. Adegas Morgadío makes one with aromas of pineapple, peach, orange, coconut, and a general palate-pleasing sumptuousness. Captivating.

Rias Baixas in Northwest Spain is known for producing excellent Albariño wine.

Martin Códax makes a very fine Albariño from Rias Baixas called Burgáns. The 2004 is everything this style of wine should be—full and fresh with clean lemon oil, apricot, and green apples on the palate and a long, graceful mineral finish.

Verdejo is a good quality white wine grape from the Rueda region in Northwest Spain. Verdejo-based wines taste of lemon, herbs, and nuts and are often blended with Sauvignon Blanc for body.

Verdejo offers very good value for the price with many bottles costing less than $10. A reliable producer is Marqués de Riscal; their Rueda Blanco is 85 percent Verdejo and 15 percent Viura and reveals sprightly lemon fruit with hints of spiced nuts.

Another shining example of Verdejo from the Ruedo region is Palacio de Menade 2004, which is aromatic and crisp, long, and focused with flavors of gentle herbs, lemon, and tropical fruit. Outstanding value at under $10.

Despite the fact Northwest Spain sings to white wine lovers, there are some decidedly tasty reds. Descendientes de Jose Palacios, a biodynamic property in the Bierzo region, makes an intense and serious sipper named Petalos del Bierzo. It tastes of red bell pepper, forest fruits, herbs, and spice, delivering a lengthy finish of black pepper and smoke. This is a very handsome wine at a remarkably reasonable price.

Spanish Wine - Wines of Northwest Spain
The wines from Descendientes de Jose Palacios are made by Alvaro Palacios, the celebrated winemaker who put Priorat on the map in the Northeast of the country by making such sought after wines as L'Ermita and its sister wines Finca Dofi and Les Terrasses.

All wines by Alvaro Palacios are organic, dark, wild-eyed beauties, but you won't see the "o"word on the label because he thinks a wine's quality should speak for itself.
