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.
Everything you want in an Albariño, it is crisp, clean and refreshing and one of my favs.
Good quality Albarino from Rias Baixas is a particular favorite of mine, and this one hit all the marks. Crisp, refreshing, citrus-y and a perfect note of minerality.
I originally got this wine through the wine club. I had never heard of albarino before. After one taste , I was a fan ! It's Crisp, little tart and very refreshing. Liked it so much I ordered another 4 bottles using my points!
This is a delightfully crisp and refreshing wine. Have bought it twice this year.

If you like whites with a heavy mineral taste, get this
This is a great Albarino. It has a crisp finish with prominent notes of minerals. It has a little fruit flavor to it. Best I've had in this price range. Wish I bought more.
Crisp refreshing white
Everything you want in an Albariño: crisp, refreshing, a little fruit. Great with shellfish, spicy food, or a refreshing sipper.
