Add to Cart
Bright and spacious right out of the bottle, with apricot, sea breeze, and tangerine notes haloed by citrus blossom, white pepper, and quinine. Round on entry as well as fleshy and seamless on the palate, but quickly explodes in a sea shell and citrus supernova, with brilliant clarity of fruit and mineral cut in a long-sustained finish.
Cam Confidential

Lot 654 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 654 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.
