It’s one of the most popular appellations in Galicia Region, and is worldwide famous for the dry varietal made from Albariño grapes.
Well adapted to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, Albariño was presumably brought to Spain by monks, in the 12th century. Its name, 'Alba-Riño', means 'the white wine from the Rhine', and some specialists suggest it could be a Riesling clone originating from Alsace, France.

Albariño grapes are small and very sweet, with unusually thick skins which help the fruit tolerate the damp climate, and also contribute to the acidity and to some residual bitterness. They make wines with a distinct aroma, suggesting melon, apricot, peach, tropical fruits, flowers; they also bring crispiness, freshness and slight mineral notes. As Rías Baixas are very famous for their seafood, Albariño wines – also nicknamed Sea Wines – are the perfect companion for seafood and fish dishes.

Tasting Notes

Straw-colored yellow with green reflections, clean and very bright. With aromas of tangerine, orange blossom, fresh pastry, pear and white peaches. A deliciously zesty and punchy wine! Pears, melon and citrus fruits are all evident in the front to mid palate.

The palate is a two-fold experience: characters of Italian pinot grigio pedigree, with weight and texture and then the back palate is all racy and riesling-like, with wonderful acidity.
