Wine Details

Pale and crystalline in the glass, and immediately greets you with the breezy freshness of its ocean origins. Cracked seashell and lemon zest at first, with fresh cut peach, grapefruit, ginger spice, and a hint of mint filling out the aromatics as its gains complexity in the glass. Juicy, mineral, and suave on the palate with chalky, crisply delineated orchard fruit flavors punctuated by a beautiful saline and honeysuckle flourish.

Cam Confidential

Lot 523 is an archetypal Albariño, born of granitic, alluvial soils a stone’s throw from the Ria de Arousa Estuary in the heart of the Salnés Valley of Rías Baixas, long known as the birthplace of Albariño and its greatest expression. This producer has some of the oldest plantings of Albariño in the region.

I first reached out to the producer last year, but unfortunately the 2014 wines were already sold; however, I got in line for the 2015s. When I tasted the wine in February (just as it came off the lees) I took everything I could get my hands on. Obviously I can’t name the producer, but if you ask any Spanish sommelier who they think is making the best Albariño, this winery would be at the top of anyone’s list. Antonio Galloni’s Vinous has scored this particular cuvee 90-91 points three of the last four vintages. Today’s release is the exact same cuvee they bottle under their own label. Compare at $20/bottle.

I tried 4 bottles of this with my last case order and was pleasantly surprised. Has a great nose, isn't too heavy or sweet, not too dry. It went perfectly with wood grilled Salmon. I just logged in to place an order for more, and I see it is already sold out, I should have ordered more when it was still in stock !

As you were out of GreenLip, acts as a substitute with a Spanish tinge.

After my first order of this Albarino, I promptly ordered more, great wine for the price. Bright with mineral tones, definitely not a California wine! Great for sipping in warm weather on the deck or like meals.
