Both of these wines were very aromatic and fruity. They aren't overly sweet, but have a lot of fruit flavor. Typically I like a white wine that is a little more acidic, so I was surprised that I liked both of these so much. Chef José Andrés, a spokesperson for Ribeiro wines, recommends pairing these white wines with seafood dishes. Because they're both very aromatic and fruity, I think they would be better with more robust-flavored fish or shellfish rather than mild-flavored fish. Chef Andrés recommends pairing Ribeiro whites with mussels, oysters, and sushi made with tuna. He also thinks that ribs and Ribeiro make a great match.
Last year at a wine tasting I attended, the rep recommended that we all start drinking more Spanish wines because they're high-quality wines and very affordable. At less than $20 a bottle, both of these Ribeiro wines meet my budget requirements, and they are wonderful! So come on. Break out of your chardonnay habit and try something new. It's a great way to welcome spring. And check out these wine and food pairings for Easter before the weekend arrives.
