Staff Pick Notes

White wines from Galicia have become synonymous with fresh citrusy Albariños, but the region is home to plenty of other white grapes. This Coribante Blanco is not only a showcase of the varieties of the region (50% Albariño, 25% Caiño Blanco & 25% Godello), but defies expectations in terms of style. It's rich and textured with a deep golden color that comes from aging on the lees in French barriques for a year. Bright acidity gives this wine a lift and there's even a little saline quality, which is common in wines from the Val do Salnes, which is named after the salt flats that used to cover the land. In the middle ages the fisherman used the salt to preserve their fish. Pair this with fleshier varieties such as hake or swordfish

The thick-skinned grapes thrive in the cool, windy climates of Galicia and northern Portgual, yielding intensely aromatic wines with typical aromas of almonds, white flowers, and stone fruits; the best examples...
