Spanish White Wine
White wine is the result of the alcoholic fermentation of grape juice, from skin and seed free grapes. By removing the skin and seeds from the grapes, the transferring of natural dyes from the grape to the wine is avoided. This allows red grapes to be used to make white wines, although green grapes are most commonly used; from which, godello from the albariño variety or verdejo variety are stand outs.
The elaboration process of this wine starts with the pressing of the grapes and their must or juice extraction. This must or juice, free from suspended solid particles, is then introduced in the fermentation casks, where the alcoholic fermentation occurs. When the grapes come form humid areas, they may have a certain amount of malic acid, in that case is necessary for the malic fermentation to happen in the absence of bacteria or yeasts; this process must take place right after the alcoholic fermentation or at the same time
In any case, the end of the fermentation process is marked by the quantity of sugar in the wine, which is usually superior to two grams per litter, except in the very dry white wines. The complete fermentation process does not usually last more than fifteen days, and once finished, a period of transferring and clarification takes place to completely eliminate any solid residuals that may be in suspension. From this moment, the wine is bottled and it is ready to be consumed. Generally, white wines should be consumed within a period of six to twelve months after they are bottled; thus, the option of buying wines online is highly recommended.
Spanish White Wines
Spain has a vast white wine variety, and there are many denominations of origin(DO) which have achieved great recognition for the quality of their wines.
Therefore vino de Rueda(DO) is very well known for its white wines, among them the most representative is verdejo, made with at least 50% verdejo grape. The region of Rueda located in the Valladolid province, has achieved a high degree of specialization in their white wines, characterized for their controlled acidity, their fruity aromas, their slight bitterness and their excellent harmony.
Rias Baixas (DO) is another representative denomination from Spain. These white wines from the Galician region, are very dry, fruity and with a highly controlled acidity. A particular stand out is albariño wine, it has a slightly higher alcoholic content than the rest of the white wines from the same denomination of origin; and it is characterized for its lovely golden color, its softness, and its intense fruity flavor
As part of Vinos del Bierzo (DO) in the León region, wines made with a high proportion of godello grape are found. Cellars that make Godello wines from this denomination of origin, have achieved excellent wines, with a very characteristic personality and an aromatic profile that presents a certain complexity.
This wines have a certain aging ability when they go through barrels.
Spain has many other white wine denominations of origin; which means white wines of great quality can be purchased online, from the regions of Catalonia, Alicante, as well as the numerous options offered by the wines from Andalusia.
While not long ago, white wines were destined to be consumed as aperitif or paired with seafood or fish; today the new concept of white wine pairing, has changed widely and noticeably. And so now, it has become habitual to drink a verdejo with bird meat, a sophisticated marinara pasta dish, or simply allow each diner to choose the white wine of their preference.
