Wine Details

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.

This is a perfectly clear, balanced and crisp white wine with a nice mineral finish - I'm only sad I discovered it at the END of the summer instead of before!

This has become our favorite white offered by CH. We love the vibrant citrus notes balanced with a distinctive mineral finish. Yet another wine that encouraged two more friends to join CH. An exceptional wine and value.

nice white wine to sit on the patio drinking in an insulated cup to fight the summer heat. Very good with the fresh crab we harvest off the beach. Extremely fair pricing when compared to the local retailers.

This is a pleasant wine, but I was a little disappointed. Does not really have the characteristic high acidity, refreshing citrus flavors, dry taste, and subtle saltiness that one hopes for in an Albarino
