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.
Wife loves it
Though we’ve had mostly reds the past 10 years, my wife has shifted gears to whites. She is a huge fan of this wine...she typically prefers a Pinot Grigio rather than a Chardonnay, so if this describes you, then this wine is for you!
Cam with another great Albarino
I have bought and tried every single Albarino Cam has come out with over the last 2 years. There haven't been a ton, but I remember each of the last four he's released. This one does just as good of a job as the rest. Refreshing, easy to drink, and goes well when hanging outside on a nice Fall evening.
Citrusy and refreshing, slightly sweet, looking forward to my next one.
Very good wine for the money
This Alberino is well balanced with citrus and acidity that is a perfect match for fish, chicken and spicy foods.
refreshing Spanish wine
This Alberino has a citrus, sweet, acidic front. It proceeds to be smooth middle to finish. This would pair wonderfully with fish or chicken dishes. It would also stand sans food, as a refreshing adult beverage.
This was a really great wine to enjoy by itself or with food. We had it with salmon and it was perfect. Nice opening with a strong finish that could handle the fattiness of the salmon. We will order again.
One of the Best Spanish Wines
I am crazy about Spanish wines and always excited to discover something new and worthwhile. This Albarino is fantastic. You can definitely taste the apricot and tangerine notes. The overall mouthfeel is very smooth and luscious with wonderful mingling of citrus, sea air and floral notes. Nothing can beat this wine with a fruit and cheese plate on a late summer evening.
We tried this recently and loved it, scoop some up before its gone!
