Wine Details

A deeper, more resinous experience of Albariño, this free-run cuvee spends an additional 4-5 months on its lees. The nose is more orchard fruit driven, with mineral tinged pear, white peach, and nectarine tinged with spicy ginger. The powdery blossom notes are there but subtle against the spicy fruit, saline, and rock salad. Lush but lively on the palate, with a fantastic delineation of stone fruit, schist, and saline in a long, resinous finish that shows there’s lots more to come.

Cam Confidential

Lot 546 is 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. Obviously I can’t name the producer, but they have some of the oldest plantings of Albariño in the region and you can be assured that the name is ubiquitous amongst Spanish sommeliers. Year after year, their Albariño has been rated 90+ by Galloni’s Vinous, Wine Enthusiast, and other top publications.

Lot 546 is their highest offering available in the US. Produced from some of the best free-run parcels and aged a few extra months on the lees, it's a terrific candidate for aging. Compare at $25.

Albariño is becoming one of my favorite wines. I really enjoyed this one. Nice and crisp. Hope it will be available again.

Not a lot of nose but very nice grapefruit on the taste. This wine is outstanding with food and also very good by itself. A bit more finesse that lot 547 but an excellent wine for the price if you like grapefruit. I will look for future vintages to purchase more.

First purchase of this varietal. Citrus & saline a unique and pleasurable combo. Enjoyed it alone and with crab cakes. Unfortunately, all sold out. Will buy Albariño again!

I didn't know what to expect when ordering CH wine, but to my surprise, the Albarino was fantastic! My husband and I had it with potato encrusted halibut, but it was also delicious on it's own.

I'm partial to Spanish wines, and have been enjoying the offerings in whites. This wine is fantastic. Subtle yet savory, light but flavorful. It's the perfect Spanish white.

This Lot is my favorite white wine by CHWine! Lot 547 is another great one, but this stands out because of it's smelling notes, complex taste, and long finish.
