Welcome to Drinks Tube I’m Omar Allibhoy and I’m here to tell you why Spanish wines are the best. This is wine wars! Spanish wine, it’s the killer. Spain is just full of vineyards. It has more area covered than any other country in the world, with over 3 million acres. We make some of the best wines imaginable, and I want to share with you my personal favourites. So first up red wine, or as we call it Spain Vino Tinto. I’ve chosen this to represent my country which comes from Alicante, Eastern Spain. Blackcurrents, blackberries, really fruity. Lots of spices, chocolate, this is the wine that my generation brings. I can see myself in a little bodega in Madrid where I come from, having one or two of these with my friends, with some lamb, some tapas to share. And probably as well it could even go very very well with shellfish, which is unusual. If you’re familiar with Cabernet Sauvignon I would recommend you to get a bit adventurous and try this. This young but full bodied wine will go very well with meaty flavours and if you’re in to cooking I recommend you to try my potato and chorizo stew, clicking over here. Ladies this one is for you. Let me introduce to you El Novio Perfecto, the perfect boyfriend. This one is very seductive on the nose. So floral, tastes like jasmine reminds me of Thailand for a second, even though it is from Spain. Very citrusy, it’s half dry so it’s slightly sweet. So it makes the perfect wine to share tapas and combine different flavours whether it is meat, vegetable or fish. I can see myself in Valencia where it comes from, with my friends sharing some tapas laying on the beach with the sun high, difficult to describe! This one is for the riesling lovers, it has a lot of similarities yet a complete different complexity. To represent my home country I have chosen this rosa wine, rosado. You can go to lots of extremes with food and tapas, cheese, ham, deep-fried squid and with those red wines and white wines hardly ever match all of them. Rose wine tends to be the one that washes down all the mouthfuls and connects all the different flavours between each other, making it a very pleasurable sharing experience. This beautiful juice is made from garnacha, or as you know it as grenache. But it is a native Spanish variety, the French stole it! Lots of red berries, flavours, cherries, strawberries and it has a lot of acidity to the nose. One of the things that comes to my pallet is the caramel flavour. As well I can feel all the strawberries and very cinnamon aftertaste. The more french style rose which is more salmon in colour, subtle with loads of acidity but very smooth in flavours this is totally opposite. Very bold, intense in aromas, full of energy and very refreshing as well. It will go very well with spicy food, like beef skewers for example, or everything really it’s that good! So next time you are having wine try these, they are all amazing. Let me know what you think in the comment box below.
