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.
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.
Best of CH whites
The best of the last few years--so crisp, so clean, so much "minerality" it's my go to wine anytime I need a white.
My favorite CH Albarino!
I love this Albarino! It's crisp, fresh and smooth on the finish. I am so glad they brought it back - getting ready to order again!
Lithe Albariño with Lovely Aroma, Taste
We bought a half-case of this; we should have bought more. It brings with it that great mineral note of a true Spanish (nw Spain) albariño, which goes splendidly with fish, cheeses (goat, sheep especially, but a Manchego would be fine also). Grilled meats are fine, too. It's no chardonnay, no sauvignon blanc, no pinot grigio -- I prefer it to all of them. Well worth having in your cellar.
Great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc
Our hard core sauvignon blanc drinker loves this wine! Very dry and crisp. Drink every day.
I’ve had a few very acidic Albariño. This is a very well balanced wine. This one has a citrusy nose with a crisp, fruity, mineral taste. Great value at the price point like all of the other CH juice.
Amazing spring summer harvest
We had tried another vineyards version that was wonderful but this is even better. Mineral and citrus that just livens up the palette. Great finish with a light but full bodied wine. Would highly recommend and we are going to get more. Fantastic find and glad we had opportunity to enjoy
