Which White When?

Article by VinoList

You stop into a tapas bar and you’re handed a long list of Iberian white wines by the glass. What are you going to pick? A light, crisp Vinho Verde? A richer Spanish Albarino? Maybe a limey Rueda would do the trick, or a simple white Rioja. What about the rare 10-year-old white Rioja on the list? Check out these tastings and you’ll get a better idea of how each of these wines compare.

Alvarinho vs. Albarino

A Portuguese Vinho Verde such as Quinta da Aveleda, Adega de Moncao, Quinta da Pedra, or Casa de Sezim

An Albarino from Spain such as Palacio de Fefinanes, Pazo de Senorans, or Laxas

Here are two wines from the same grape, same area, but each with a different accent. You might be able to tell the difference by sight alone: Often Vinho Verde is as green-tinged as the Verde in the name suggests. If not, though, smell each of them. The Vinho Verde should practically snap your nose to attention, like a squirt of lime would, while the Spanish Albarino beckons with promises of smooth, marzipan riches. Taste them. One’s jazzy, bright, and acidic; the other so smooth the acid seems hidden in comparison. Which is your type of wine?

Light Spanish Whites: Rueda and Rioja

A Rueda such as Belondrade y Lurton, Marques de Riscal, or Martinsancho

A light white Rioja such as Marques de Ceceres, Valdemar, or Faustino VII

Barrel-fermented Rioja like Muga, Conde de Valdemar Fermentado en Barrica, Baron de Orla Blanco, or Faustino V

Have someone pour one of each of these for you and present them without telling you which one is which; the differences are so noticeable, you’ll ID them in a cinch. Check out the colors: As with most barrel-fermented wines, this one is so much darker than the others it’s as if you can see the oak in it.

Smell them. Smell the vanilla oak in the barrel-fermented Rioja? Smell the bright herb and lemon scents of the Rueda? See how light the plain Rioja is in comparison?

Taste them, starting with the plain Rioja, then the Rueda, and then the barrel-fermented Rioja. Taste how they get richer?

Bonus Flight: Unusual Aged Iberians

A Vinho Verde from a producer like Palacio da Brejoiera

An older white Rioja from a producer who specializes in the style such as R. Lopez de Heredia Vina Tondonia or Marques de Murrieta with its Castillo Ygay white

These wines are tricky to find and cost a little more than most Vinho Verde and white Rioja, but their nutty, spicy, caramel-apple flavors make them favorites among fans of the style. A traditional style,it’s fading quickly in favor of lighter, brighter, cleaner wines, so check them out before the style disappears.
