Rías Baixas Wine

 

This region lies along the Atlantic coastline in Galicia, in the northwest part of Spain. The ocean brings a cool microclimate with lots of wet weather, yielding lush, green fields. 
 
It is known for producing Albariño, which is a dry, refreshing white wine with citrus and white stone fruit flavors, with a long, delightful floral finish. Some of these wines also have a light effervescence. The flavors are very versatile and can be paired with many Asian cuisines including sushi, as well as plenty of seafood and shellfish preparations, can take on a pesto, plus soups such as white gazpacho, cauliflower and even butternut squash. 
 
Rías Baixas is divided into five subzones:
 
*Val do Salnes: the coolest area just touching the coastline. Known for producing some of the best wines of the region on gradual slopes and valley floors of the Umia river.
*Condado do Tea: the area farthest from the Atlantic with higher temperatures, producing quality Read more »

  • Altos de Torona Rosal Triple Varietal 2015

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of three grape varieties: Albarino, Caino, and Loureiro. Very pretty clear golden color. Fairly floral nose. Very light and crisp. Light stone fruit on entry. Super tart. Very simple wine. Good for summer sipping with only the lightest of meals. Read More

  • Terras Gauda Abadía de San Campio Albarino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Remarkably bright golden color. Suggestion of citrus on the nose. The wine starts off with an unfortunate chemical taste, but that whatever that was, it blows off after a few minutes. Lots of acidic fruit flavorscitrus, tropical. Some mineral hints. But now Im getting a metallic thing on the back edges of my tongue. OK wine, but not one th... Read More

  • Pazo de Señorans Albariño Rías Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Light refreshing mineral notes of lemongrass and lemon zest with a hint of mint and white pepper. Generous flavors of ripe peach, melon, persimmon and lemon on the palate with a perky acidity and a hint of effervescence through the midpalate. Finishes light but long with a nice creaminess and more mineral salinity. Read More

  • Terras Gauda Albarino Abadia de San Campio 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Rich minerality, sea foam and tart lemon aromas open for this on the nose with a lightly floral white blossom note and a hint of peach. This is zesty and bold on the palate particularly on entry with bright pink grapefruit and lemonade notes, a full acidity and touches of melon with a creamy texture towards the finish that holds on for quite a w...

    Binny's 3/2017. Another wine that I inhaled all buy myself in South Haven on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. So glad I did not have to share. Read More

  • Pazo de San Mauro Albariño Rias Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Honey, lemon zest and blossom aromas are nicely perfumed and inviting with a touch of spice. Fresh lemon, grapefruit and pear on the palate with a focused tartness that switches from salty sea air to melon to green apple in equal proportion before dispensing a final pop of acidity, cream and almond notes on the finish.

  • Señorío de Rubiós Robaliño Albariño Rias Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly floral honeysuckle and rose petal aromas with pleasant minerality and lemon and lime fruit notes on the nose. This has a playful and expressive mouthfeel with buoyant acidity and sweet spice alongside pink grapefruit, lime and a cooling finish full of creamy hazelnuts, green apple, honeydew melon and clean citrus fruit.

  • Santiago Ruiz Albarino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Assertive spice and zesty citrus on the nose with sea foam slate minerality. Tart and lemony in the mouth, this manages to be both zesty and soft, with creamy almonds playing against honeysuckle and Meyer lemon and a fresh wave of vanilla spice shooting through on the finish and giving way to floral apricot and toasted melon.

  • Condes de Albarei Albariño Rias Baixas 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Aromas of mineral peach, green apple and orange blossom with hints of buttery melon. Juicy and firm in the mouth with good body, more melon and fresh grapefruit notes, even a touch of pineapple coming through on the mid palate with a pleasant sandy salinity filtering through towards the finish just before releasing a touch of tangerine and cream.

  • Valminor Rias Baixas Albarino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh salty ocean air, seaweed and spicy lemon balm notes on the nose leading to a slight buttery character with grapefruit flavors. Continuing the theme on the palate, this wine tastes like a refreshing day at sea with salty lemon zest and lively, bouncy acidity in front of a tart citrus and ripe green apple finish. Excellent body, texture and ... Read More
