Tasting Note

Tangier perhaps than previous vintages, this may also reflect continuing evolution in the dominant style of Rías Baixas Albariño; the lees character compliments the stony, dusty citrus fruit without interfering with it in any way. Drink soon or over the next few years.

Wine Description

Our 2011 Albariño is delicate and medium-bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Flavors of ripe apple, peach, pear and lemon zest are framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. This wine displays intense floral aromas and an attractive acidity, making it a versatile, food-friendly wine.

About the Winery
