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.
Wonderful sipping wine
I've always loved this wine because one can just sit and sip slowly and have a full evening.
Great with fruit and cheese. Nice by itself. Just as good as the 2016 Albarino.
What a refreshing Spanish varietal. Light to medium bodied with a touch of minerality. Served it with manchego cheese!
Great with Shellfish
A nice change from the usual white wines. Crisp but with round mouth feel. A little bit fruity but not sweet. Good for sipping and great with shellfish.
This is good
This is good stuff. We were introduced to Albarino by a friend who knows wine. This was better than the bottle she gave us
I love this wine and just ordered more. I just got back from Spain, and this reminds me of being there. Love the minerality of this wine. Perfect with cheese and olives, salads, etc.
Lively but has some heft
Vibrant, uplifted nose with saline and floral notes. Very lively on the palate with a nice finish. Given all of this, this wine has some substance as well. A great dry white wine!
Sweeter than 2017
Still a good wine, but not as good as 2017. Sweeter and less depth.
Great intro to this grape
Albarino this good usually costs over $20. A great pairing with an aromatic fish dish.
