Lot 547
2016 Rías Baixas Albariño

The classic offering from one of Spain's greatest white wine producers, straight from the historical birthplace of Albariño. Born of granitic, alluvial soils in the heart of Rías Baixas.
Classic cracked seashell and saline profile – this is a sea breeze in a glass, and perfect for summer. Leaps out of the glass with uber-fresh notes of ripe citrus blossom and green apple, mingling with crushed seashell. Zingy on the palate, with nervy acidity in a lip-smackin’, rock lickin’, mid-palate citrus explosion, with saline and citrus blossom barking up your retro nasal cavity. Sounds fun, right? It is.

Style: Light, Fruity

Flavors: Mineral, Peach

Cam Confidential

Lot 547 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 547 is the 2016 vintage of the same cuvee as our fan favorite and best-selling Lot 523. If you were a fan of the 2015, this wine is a dead ringer. Compare at $20.
