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.
Good with Creamed Chicken & Pasta
Enough body to stand up to some cream sauce. Refreshing, no sweetness, with a little minerality. Good finish. I like Albarinos, and this is one of the best I've had.
Albariño is becoming one of my favorite wines. I really enjoyed this one. Nice and crisp. Hope it will be available again.
Very nice will food or by itself
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.
Wow, I never knew I could enjoy a white wine like this! Wish I could buy more!
First Albariño experience
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.
Loved this wine. Nice and bright. Off dry. Easy drinking
Excellent Spanish wine. Perfect fir sipping. Not dry at all
Save some for summer!
An excellent afternoon wine; refreshing with great flavor and body. #547 is also a winner
