Wine nerd alert! 🍷

Rias Baxias region of northwest Spain 🇪🇸The Galician climate receives moisture from the Atlantic 🌊 and is mostly sticky, warm and rainy with rain ☔️ most days during the year. The humid, salt air is what this viticultural environment is all about. The mostly white wines made here are highly acidic, with notes of tart, green apple 🍏 and white flowers. Most wines are aged in stainless steel and some see new, French oak but only for a few months. Then they are aged in the bottle. You can cellar them for up to 5-6 years.

The Albariño grape is the most expensive and most difficult to produce in all of Spain.

Great and tasty. A bit more acidic than I’d like it but well balanced and specially a great aroma. I think it’s quite fruity.
