Free Ground Shipping on all orders of 12 or more bottles.
- Alcohol by Volume
- Cases Produced
Note - the 2018 vintage was bottled as Lot 654 (same # as the 2017) due to the govt shutdown in 2019 significantly impacting production schedules.
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.
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.
Put some away
Great acidity. Nectarine and peach undertones. Amazing right out of the bottle now. We’re ordering more to put away.
My current favorite
Perfect with everything or just for sipping.
Go to Wine
This is one of the best wines at CH and a great value. I have ordered it many times and have yet to be disappointed. Nice to sip on with friends during the long summer days.
This is a nice, simple, tasty wine. Nothing too complex, but nice quiet fruit flavors. A nice summer sipper for out on the porch.
Good summer wine
This wine is nice and crisp as an Albarino should be. It goes down easily. I don't find it to be a wine that needs to be discussed rather one that can be enjoyed with friends while sitting on the porch with easy flowing conversation.
Excellent all year round
We have loved this wine since we first tried it a few years ago. Try it you will like it.
I love albarino
I love Albarino and this is a great example. The flavor is crisp and zesty. Great with seafood or as an aperitif.
Great Spanish White
We were lucky enough to have a kid living in Spain and loved their wines. This offering from CH is a hit. Love it.
Perfect with clams and oysters.
I love this wine. Really extraordinary with clams and oysters--a perfect pairing. I recently ordered more.
