Sunday, February 7 is the Superbowl. While it will be different this year, it will still be a game that lasts hours, making it imperative to have refreshments and snacks on hand. Here are some suggestions for tasty snacks that can be purchased at Paris Madrid Grocery:
Along with Spanish olives and herb-coated almonds, snack on Torres Spanish potato chips. Choose from Olive oil, herb, smoked paprika, truffle, foie, and Jamon Serrano flavors.
Open a jar of red pepper-artichoke bruschetta or olive tapenade and enjoy with picos (Spanish breadsticks).
Serve a selection of French and Spanish cheeses with Ines Rosales olive oil tortas.
Roast chunks of potato and top with Salsa Brava and Alioli for an easy, spicy appetizer.
For the main course, make sandwiches of sliced chorizo and manchego, or grill chistorra sausages and serve on our torpedo sandwich bread. You can also stuff piquillo peppers with artichoke bruschetta for an easy tapa! And of course, making a paella is a great idea any time.
We’ve got Estrella Galicia Spanish beer in stock to wash down the chips and nuts.
CHAMPAGNE AND NEW WINE ARRIVALS:
Anima Mundi Camí dels Xops 2019 M. Ancestral, Penedes ($21.99) Winemaker Agustí Torello Roca is known for his limited production Kripta cava packaged in a hand-made bottle. Anima Mundi is his side project, aiming to show the true expression of the grapes and place without any additions or interventions in the winery. The grapes are farmed biodynamically, hand-harvested and wild yeast fermented in stainless steel tanks and old 225L French oak barrels. Made in the métode ancestral process, the fermentation is paused by using very cold temperatures, then the wine is bottled for aging. Fermentation finishes in the bottle, releasing CO2 into the wine and creating the bubbly mousse. No additions are made to the wine and with a residual sugar of 20 g/l, it shows some sweetness. A blend of Macabeu and Xarel-lo from two adjoining parcels on their property, no sulfites were added at any time, and the finished wine was not fined nor filtered. This is a lively, precise, clean, and very mineral pet-nat, ideal for fresh seafood and poultry dishes, grilled vegetables or just sharing with friends. Excellent for those looking for a natural wine or a sparkler with some sweetness.
Marc Hebrart Cuvee de Brut Premier Cru Champagne ($49.00) A firm backbone of acidity is softened by the fine and creamy mousse of this balanced Champagne, featuring flavors of baked pear, fig bread, salted almond and honey that are well-knit and focused through to the lingering finish. 92 points Wine Spectator
Siglo Tempranillo Rioja 2018 ($11.99) Bodegas Siglo was founded in 1890 and owns over 300 hectares of vineyards in Rioja. An old-school Rioja producer, their wines were the first Riojas to be sold in the USA in the early 1900s. Today, the fifth generation runs the estate and produces wines with a traditional style, using modern wine making. Lightly aged in oak, this young wine offers up ripe red fruit. Smooth and velvety, it shows notes of cigar-box spice with silky tannins. With amazing complexity for the price, this is a wine that over delivers! Drink this red quaffer on casual evenings with burgers or pizza.
Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada 2016, Ribera del Duero ($17.99) I love the elegance of these Tempranillo wines from Bodegas Resalte. 100% Tempranillo, grown at 2000 feet elevation, aged 12 months in new French oak. Shows floral notes with freshness and balance. With hints of vanilla on the palate, it is smooth and mineral-driven. “This chewy red delivers black cherry, plum and licorice flavors in a dense texture, with firm tannins balanced by lively acidity. Exuberant, yet remains harmonious.” 91 points Wine Spectator
Resalte Origen 2015 Ribera del Duero ($24.99) 100% Tempranillo from different low-yielding vineyards to bring greater complexity to the wine. Aged 14 months in French and American oak, this is a full-bodied and concentrated ared wine. Very elegant with notes of spice, mineral and vanilla, fans of California Zinfindel will be over the moon with this wine. “Firm and polished, this solid red shows loamy earth, espresso and clove notes framing a core of currant and dried fig flavors. The muscular tannins are well-integrated and balanced by lively acidity. Harmonious and energetic.” 93 points Wine Spectator
