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 »

  • Bodegas la Cana Albarino 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent albarino! Lemon chiffon and peach, a touch of tartness but also some creaminess. Very well balanced with medium crisp acidity and nice mouth feel. Going to stock some more of this for the summer. Read More

  • Boy, good luck.  I have had Txakoli only twice in my life.  Last ... ... but it is from the nearby Rias Baixas region.  However, the thing that Albarino has going for it is that it is pretty easy to find in the U.S.  You can even find it in high-volume retail stores.  Another idea is to try Portuguese Vinho Verde.  Another excellent seafood wi...
