Hamper fans can 'ease back' with Spanish whites
Published on 10/01/2011

Spanish white wine has been recommended as the perfect tonic to wine hamper fans who over-indulged at Christmas.

Susy Atkins of the Daily Telegraph thinks the "fresh and palate-cleansing" taste of a good Spanish white is the perfect accompaniment to the simple foods that come with January detox diets.

Generally a choice with a lower alcohol content, as an unoaked, refreshing alternative it "just feels right", she says.

"Pick from the mouthwatering, peachy albarinos of Rias Baixas in the far-flung, coolish north-west, or lime-scented whites made from the verdejo grape further south in Rueda."

Ms Atkins advises that drinkers steer away from burgundy and chardonnay in the direction of the latest Spanish vintage, served chilled with pan-fried white fish.

Scott Parker of BusinessWeek.com lists Bodegas Nora, Lagar de Cevera and Do Ferreiro as good examples to look out for, but encourages shoppers to buy newer wines as these particular varieties don't age well.
