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.
Really different wine
I really enjoyed this Albarino, it actually had a bit more flavor than your normal Albarino, definitely recommend trying!
Not a fan
This was a first try of albarino. Won't be having a second.
A Summer Delight.
I am quite a fan of Albarino and was pleased Cameron Hughes offered a selection. It a delight in the summer heat here in South Carolina. The trademark salty edge and subtle fruit make it so drinkable that our case is almost gone.
Another fine chardonnay substitute
Albariños are among my favorite whites, and this citrus, tangy Spaniard is a good example. It was quite good with Chinese - chow mien, lemon chicken ...
Nice very smooth
Nice too sip
Complexity and quality
Lightly carbonated, crisp and complex. A drier white that pairs great with a light summer meal.
Easy summer wine
I love a good albarino. Light & refreshing. Wonderful for summer!
Nice, but not as good as I expected it to be.
A Great Discovery
We only discovered the Albariño grape last year, not exactly in Spain but in a wine package on an Oceania transatlantic cruise after sailing out of Barcelona. We fell in love with it, and had to pick up some bottles of this. It brings back memories of Spain and cruising - what's not to like? Living in the Northwest, we're finally starting to see some summer weather, and this crisp white will keep us company as we sit in majestic isolation on our patio.
Easy Sipping Wine, Better with Food
Mild grapefruit, lemon, and a hint of grass on the nose. Grapefruit, lemon, and grass on the taste with moderate acidity. Finish is similar with mild lemon, grass, mineral, and a grapefruit linger. Not a complex wine, easy to sip, but a better food wine.
