The canopy system used in the Rias Baxias region of northwest Spain provides for ample aeration and keeps the vines protected from the moist ground which breeds an environment not conducive to support healthy clusters. The Galician climate receives moisture from the Atlantic and is mostly sticky, warm and rainy with rain ☔️ most days during the year. Winters are a bit harsh and cold. 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 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.

Medium plus aroma of peaches, gala apple, banana and lemon. Slight salinity. On palate, fruit salad (apples, white grapes, bananas, melon) with a definite mineral presence, refreshing but tame acidity, and a slightly bitter finish (referred to as phenolic by somme)

As several friends suggested, this was a great match for honey mustard chicken. Bright acid and a smoky minerality. A good value at $23. 12.5% abv.

Bright and vibrant; carries an herbal pine forrest edge but I liked the fresh flavored and true clean mouthfeel.

2012. Super expressive tonight, sipping on the front stoop after a summer rain, with the season's last strawberries. So much white peach and pear, balanced with lovely stony minerality.

Yoda sits in and blinds on the pazo. Smells like white Bordeaux and drinks like Mont damns. #blindwine

Really nice Albariño with notes of stone fruit, green apple and a little lemon zest. Full body with some lees characteristics.
