Tasting Note

Fefiñanes has always been an Albariño of complexity with lees notes of vanilla and texture more evident than the bright and citrusy fruit character of most Albariños. The 2010 is no exception, but don’t think for a moment that the fruit has been sacrificed: the wine also shows peach, orange, lemon and even banana and mango hints. Drink now or over the next several years.

Wine Description

This white wine is made exclusively from the Albariño grape and is fermented in stainless steel vats and bottled in its first year. A pioneer amog the Rias Baixas wines, its classic presentation is a reflection of the elegance that, 100 years after in creaction, continues to set this prince of Albariños apart from other wines.

About the Winery

Although the beginnings of the Palacio de Fefiñanes winery go back to 1904, it became firmly established in 1928 with the bottling and labeling of its first Albariño wine, Albariño de Fefiñanes. The spirit and quality commitment of a century-old name is kept alive by the winery's state-of-the art equipment.
