Wine tasting on September 17 with the Spanish courses!
On September 17 at 19:00, all the students of the Spanish courses are invited to join the wine tasting and this time it will be red wines. These red wines come from Spain and France and the three wines have an intense aroma of red fruits. They will definitely send us on a tasteful journey.
Alquez Tinto Sommos – 2016
The Alquez Tinto is from the Calatayud region in Spain. It is a wine 100% garnacha elaborated with vineyards of more than 50 years and cultivated in more than 950 metres of altitude. Thus, it exhibits a profile that is intense, concentrated and with much potential, but at the same time the wine is easy to drink. This red wine has an intense cherry red colour with ruby tones, clean and shining. Its aroma is of good intensity and quality with aromas of ripe red fruits and cocoa with mineral notes originating from the slate soils of the "terroirs" where it is cultivated. In mouth this wine is tasty, fleshy and perfectly balanced. On the nose it is fragrant and complex, first it shows aromas of fruits of the forest (strawberry, blackberry and blueberry) together with very rich balsamic notes (liquorice and eucalyptus) and spicy touches. The Alquez Tinto goes well with red meats, game meats and stews.
Paysan Pago – 2015
The Paysan is a red wine that comes directly from the region Calzadilla in Spain. It is a wine made with red garnacha grapes, with sparks to drink at any time. The wine has a medium cherry red colour. In nose it shows red fruit in seasoning, redcurrant, cherry, aromatic silver, fennel and clove graphite. In the mouth the entry is light, fresh and sweet. The red fruit is again present. The Paysan is ideal for cow cheese dishes, white meats, eggs and sausages.
Le Grand Chai Le Chai au Quai – 2016
Le Grand Cha is from Bordeaux in France and the wine is made from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. It has a beautiful deep crimson colour with a wonderful aroma of ripe red and black fruits and a hint of nine-month spicy oak in French oak barrels. The palate is succulent and tasty, with apricot and cassis flavours and a smooth texture. This expressive wine can be tasted with strong dishes such as roast lamb, beef and strong cheeses, although it will mature in the next few years.
