西班牙的傳統與現代化 Spain’s Tradition and Modernization
Spanish wines are in a state of change, with modernization taking place across the country. Such revitalization and experimentation is moving the industry forward and the quality of wines are improving. It is good to see that their traditions are being preserved during this period.
雖然越來越少人喝加烈酒，但必需強調的是，西班牙的 Sherry (雪莉酒) 仍然是最獨特的加烈酒之一。大家不妨一試她不同的風格，從全乾到濃甜都試一試。
Although the world is drinking less fortified wines nowadays, it needs to be stressed that Sherry is still one of the most unique fortified wines out there. One should try the various styles from bone dry to lusciously sweet before giving it a pass.
購買西班牙葡萄酒時，請留意酒廠已花了長時間把Reserva 及 Gran Reserva 級別的紅白葡萄酒陳年，所以這些葡萄酒比較接近適飲期，這樣可以為消費者省回不少將葡萄酒陳年的時間和成本。
Consumer should also note that wineries have spent a lot of time aging their Reserva and Gran Reserva red and white wines and it is only a good thing for the consumer as the wines are relatively ready for drinking when it is available for sale, saving the time and cost of storing and aging a wine yourselves.
It is hoped the Spanish will continue their modernization while offering the classics to consumers around the world.
