Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Product #31053 (In Stock)
Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015

Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!

“A highly expressive bouquet evokes fresh peach, melon and passionfruit, and a minerally nuance adds vivacity. Silky and open-knit, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Deftly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and smooth, featuring an echo of ripe peach and bracing ginger and mineral notes.”  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

“Gloriously aromatic with jasmine and flint notes; very scented. Full and fleshy palate with a mineral follow-through and an intense, harmonious finish. A very lovely Albariño that is so pure.” Decanter 92 points

Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2016 Product #32168 (In Stock)
Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2016 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2016

Yet ANOTHER great vintage for this value superstar. Past vintages have regularly earned 90 point ratings from the critics and the 2015 was a 92 point award winner from England's Decanter Magazine. The 2016 is just terrific. Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!

Pazo Castrelo Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 Product #31204 (In Stock)
Pazo Castrelo Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 Pazo Castrelo Albarino Rias Baixas 2014

A fun Albarino with abundant, zesty, fruit supported by classic Albarino salinity.  Excellent value, too.

"This wine is light lemon in color, with a vibrant, citrusy nose that’s accented by sweet spice. The zingy palate is doused with lime zest, crushed ginger, white peach and lemon curd. Racy acidity and hints of tannin makes this a terrific food wine. The midpalate has a touch of creaminess to soak up the tingling, vibrant juiciness. The tug-of-war of succulence and tension makes for a fun drink."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Palacio De Fefinanes Albarino Rias Baixas 2016 Product #32077 (In Stock)
Palacio De Fefinanes Albarino Rias Baixas 2016 Palacio De Fefinanes Albarino Rias Baixas 2016

It's not surprising that Palacio de Fifianes makes such outstanding wine - they've been at it since 1904!  The grapes grow on granite-laced soils in the Salnes Valley area of Rías Baixas. This is the "green" corner of Spain, with moisture, fog and cool temperatures blowing in regularly off the nearby Atlantic Ocean. The tang of the sea is in the air and on every table, where some of the world's best and freshest seafood takes center stage.  Not surprisingly, you'll find that same hint of brine in this delicious, all tank, Albarino.  While the 2016 hasn’t been reviewed yet, each of the past 4 releases has earned a 91 or 92 point rating from Vinous – and the 2016 is the best we’ve ever tasted!

Albarino isn't always aromatic, so the lovely scents of ripe citrus, pear, honeysuckle and white pepper are especially delightful here.  The flavors are just as lovely, with layers of orange, lime, apricot, and green apple fruit bursting across your palate and gaining complexity from dashes of fennel frond, white pepper, and salty sea shell minerality.  It's a vigorous, energetic, wine that keeps on pumping out delicious layers of flavor across a very long, mouthwatering, finish.  Well worth popping a bottle just to drink but it would be a shame not to enjoy it with briny shrimp, clams, or anything laced with olives or capers.
