O Rosal, Rías Baixas


O Esteiro Rías Baixas Mencía Blend 2020

Very pleasingly fresh and natural for its price, showing very green with aromas of bell pepper, which mingles on the palate with green strawberry. A wine harvested early to compensate for a warm year, and though it shows, the result is tasty. — 5 months ago


O Rebusco Albariño

Bought as part of the 7 bottle selection from a good wine shop in Barcelona and drunk last week in Spain. This wine was made from 100% Albariño and in a natural style to my palate - with skin contact I thought. Had that luscious mouth filling texture that so many Mediterranean whites have. Only 400 to 500 bottles made per year. — 2 years ago

Bágoa do Miño Rías Baixas Albariño Lágrima 2019

Made from 100% Albariño from the O Pucha Estate, An outstanding Albariño, but ‘20 was better. Bright pale lemon with aromas of stone, tropical fruits and elegant floral scents. On the palate flavors off melon, peach and pineapple with honey-like tones. Well structured and balanced, medium+ finish ending with savory mineral tang. Nice! — 2 years ago

Pazo de Seoane

Rosal Albariño Blend 2021

Blend of 60% Albariño, the other part made up of Treixadura, Loureiro & Caino.
Very light & fresh, salty & rocky on the nose. Hardly any fruit. Shy at this stage.
Nice, creamy & quite firm mouthfeel. Salty, fresh, juicy. Shy lemons, salty rocks, a hint of white peach & green pear. Nice presence, depth & length. Savoury & much better with food as this has some weight.
Very good.

O Con Viño de Encostas Albariño

Outstanding Albariño by Xosé Luis Sebio (winemaker at Coto de Gomariz). From old vines in Aios (Sanxenxo) in the Salnes subzone of Rías Baixas. Clean, precise nose with aromas of citrus, minerals, sea breeze. Very refreshing, elegant on the palate. Citrus, zesty acidity. Long, saline finish. Very very good — 2 years ago

Cepas Vellas Rías Baixas Albariño do Ferreiro 2019

Fabulous bottling. Singular exemplar of what albariño can do at the highest level. Tightrope between grassy, herbaceous Sauvignon blanc opening & smoky Riesling finish. Reminds you why albariño was thought to be a Riesling clone. Zippy acid, lime, smoky apple fruit, fabulous texture and long penetrating finish. 200 y/o vines. 😍 — a year ago

O Esteiro Rías Baixas Mencía 2016

Another Iberian stunner I hadn’t tried before. Pale garnet, translucent at the edges. Gorgeous nose has rose petals, strawberry, dried leaves, black tea. Palate is earth and floral tones, rocks and tart red fruit in that order. There’s like a slight crunchy vegetal pink peppercorn thing going on too. Could go with just about anything (this pizza very much included) — 3 years ago
