Have you ever thought about which are the preferred wines for Spanish women? If so, you are in luck. In the following lines, we are going to answer that question. And if not, don't worry, it's always good to know something new every day. In any case, it must be said first of all that Vivanco Crianza is their favourite red Rioja, as can be seen from the fact that a group of 200 experts in the field awarded it the Racimo de Oro (Golden Cluster) at the 5th edition of the Tasting Competition for Women's Favourite Wines, one of the most prestigious awards given to this type of product in our country.
In fact, it is quite common to think that they usually prefer white or sparkling rosé wines to red ones. However, as has been demonstrated, this is not the case. But neither do I want to say that there are no other wines which, according to the preferences shown in various studies, are more in demand by the female public. A good example of this I want to say is that of sweet wines.
This type of wine, in general, had always been very typical of Andalusian cities and was not always consumed beyond their borders. On the other hand, nowadays we can see that, thanks to its fresh and pleasant taste, it is more and more demanded all over our country. Moreover, it has been discovered as an excellent complement to desserts as it accompanies perfectly the ice cream, brownie and sweets with some component of vanilla. We are talking, of course, about fortified wines, don't you know them? Well, basically, they are those wines which undergo different special processes during the production phase with the aim of making them more stable and thus increasing their alcohol content.
In spite of this, their condition as 100e derivative of the grape remains intact. To achieve this, brandy must generally be used before or during fermentation. For its part, the most renowned are Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala and Banyuls. I am going to continue talking about the generous ones but focusing on a particular typology.
Specifically, I would like to refer to Oloroso wines, that is to say, those typical of Montilla-Moriles and the Marco de Jerez region which are obtained from the Palomino grape. Their flavour is one of the favourites of Spanish women as their aroma is absolutely intoxicating. Likewise, they can be found with alcoholic graduations that vary between 18 and 25º and are of a dry or fiery character. Therefore, they are excellent to whet the appetite and to accompany an aperitif or a snack before a good lunch or dinner.
In fact, as we have seen, they play a very important role in the growth of ecommerces dedicated to the sale of this type of product. The fact is that buying wine online is becoming easier and, moreover, it allows to save good amounts of money since bottles are usually available at a quite low price compared to specialized stores.
