Rías Baixas Albariño 2016

Had this about a year ago and tried another bottle to see if short term aging had some benefit. Started by the Creixell family in 1991. Produced with the fruit from their 12-hectare estate in Valle del Salnes. Vivid straw yellow with citrus and stone fruit aromas and herb notes. The palate shows ripe apple and grapefruit flavors, crisp with floral and mineral tones. Round medium finish, well balanced, generous acidity on a soft ending. Easy drinking, wine developed soft edges over a year. Very nice! — 19 days ago

Heerlijk met veel mineraliteit en friszure tonen. Licht prikkelend op de tong en bloemig aroma. Overleeft zelfs een intense camembert goed. — 6 days ago

Unquestionably great, but a Burgundian architecture may not be the answer for high-end Albariño. Very high mineral definition combined with wood aging makes it bottom heavy even with lively aroma and bright acidity. The mid-range lacks transparency and presence, but only in comparison with magnificent highs and lows. The winemaker's mastery is bit too much in evidence instead of the terroir. Too much control and not enough freedom. Maybe little too refined and sophisticated on the surface, even though it does have soul. — 19 days ago

El sabor intenso a chabacano y cebada de este vilanovés es muy cautivante. Los albariños no defraudan, eso para mí es un hecho hasta el momento. Refrescante como la brisa de Pontevedra de su cuna.

The intense flavor of apricot and barley of this vilanovés is very captivating. Albariño do not disappoint, that for me is a fact so far. Refreshing as the breeze of Pontevedra from its cradle.

Very high levels of acidities and minerality. The fruit is not as nuanced and detailed as the best examples, resulting in slight hollowness, and incompleteness, though it is not light and thin. — 3 days ago

Clear yellow color, pineapple, tropical fruits, white flowers, sea on smell. Very long persistence, easy to drink, rounded on mouth. It pairs perfectly with seafood. A very good one — 7 days ago
