Classic lemony and mineral laced Albariño from its spiritual home
The DO of Rías Baixas is renowned for the Albariño grape, a native variety that produces some of the best white wines in Spain if not the world. Situated in the northwestern region of Galicia, the DO was formally established in 1988 and Albariño has always been at the forefront of winemaking grapes for this coastal region. The vines here share the same mineral-rich soils and cool climate as some of the world’s other renowned white wine-producing regions, including France’s Loire Valley, New Zealand, and the Rhine region of Germany.
Tasting Note: Lemon yellow in colour with hints of gold. Citrus fruit hits the nose followed by apple, pear and dried candied fruits with a mineral note. Full and plentiful on the palate, with fresh acidity from the pear and apple fruits and a lovely mineral finish.
