Benito Santos Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 Product #30717 (In Stock)
Benito Santos Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 Benito Santos Albarino Rias Baixas 2014

Remarkably creamy in texture for Albarino but still plenty fresh.

"Light, green-tinged yellow. Lively, precise scents of lemon zest, quince, mint and dusty minerals, with a suave floral overtone. Dry, racy and focused, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors that put on weight with air while retaining vivacity. This bracing wine finishes spicy, stony and very long."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

Shanela Albarino Rias Baixas 2013 Product #30480 (In Stock)
Shanela Albarino Rias Baixas 2013 Shanela Albarino Rias Baixas 2013

Albarino - from the Galicia region in northwestern Spain - is all about the sea.  Proximity to the ocean makes this one of Spain's few green, verdant, regions and oysters, clams, shrimp, and other seafood appear on tables (and in paella) throughout the region.  Not surprisingly, Galicia's best white grape, Albarino, is all about the sea, too, loaded with fresh citrus fruit and a selzer/salty minerality that shines with briny fish.

Shanela is a great example, 100% biodynamically grown Albarino that's hearvested ripe, fermented cool, and then given a full 16 months on the fine lees to develop savory, mineral, complexity. Unusually rich and creamy-textured for Albarino, this shows ripe citrus and stone fruit on the nose and palate with an attractive sweet ripeness balanced by firm, salty, minerality.  Zesty, fresh, and delicious - with or without the seafood paella!

Frore de Carme Envidia Cochina Albarino 2014 Product #30393 (In Stock)
Frore de Carme Envidia Cochina Albarino 2014 Frore de Carme Envidia Cochina Albarino 2014

Yes, it's organic/biodynamic (check out the bottling info on the back label), aged in barrel, rests in a strange bottle and has a snail on the label.  Ignore all that, because this wine shines like sunshine in the glass. It's a rich, creamy, selzery Albarino with tightly wound apricot, passion fruit, and seashell aromas and flavors that broaden and deepen with air.  It's a compelling drink-alone choice but shellfish (or even snails) are its natural match. A stunner.
