Tasting Notes

From the Val do Salnés sub-region of Rías Baixas comes an excellent Albariño that's a head above the rest, in our opinion. Opulent, mineraled, aromatic, dry, and simply delicious. Will not disappoint at the table, especially with the likes of mussels or clams.

It's a dream with the fresh and light as well as with the creamy and spicy. This is an every day-wine: every day that I spend chump change on an excellent wine, I put more money in my piggy bank! #everydaywine

Albariño

The primary grape of the Rías Baixas (Lower Inlets) section of the Galicia region of northwestern Spain, Albariño is considered by many to be Spain's premier white wine. It also plays an important role in northern Portugal (where it is known as Alvarinho) as a component of Vinho Verde. The thick-skinned grapes thrive in the cool, windy climates of Galicia and northern Portgual, yielding intensely...
