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 »

  • Condes de Albarei Albariño Rias Baixas 2015


    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


    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

  • Pazo de Senorans Albarino Rias Baixas 2014


    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

  • Altos de Torona Albariño Sobre Lias 2015


    Focused salinity, stony minerality and ocean air on the nose are classic and expressive. Opens nicely on the palate with bright grapefruit, lime and melon fruit, tart acidity and more minerality coming through. This is canonically Albariño, freshly fruited and nicely balanced. Read More

    Wine review by Snooth Editorial

  • Vionta Albarino Rias Baixas 2014


    Creamy lemon meringue notes with toasted hazelnuts and sustained fresh lemon underlying the complexity. Pleasantly crisp and fresh in the mouth on entry but with an earthy toast and creaminess supporting the fruit and rounding out the textured mouthfeel, finishing clean and light once more with melon and lemon fading into a toasty memory. Read More

  • Martin Codax Albarino Rias Baixas 2015


    Sweetly floral on the nose with excellent minerality, sea breezes, sunflower seeds and lime zest. Gentle citrus notes on the palate with a stony backbone, green apple and lemon fruit filling the center and a tart acidity towards the finish that plays nicely against a creamy nuttiness. Read More

  • MJ - Congratulations on your 27th wedding anniversary.  We just celebrated ... Albarino (Don Olegario from Rias Baixas) for my shrimp.  We were too full for dessert, but I did manage to choke down a nice bourbon, the Four Roses Single Barrel.&nbs Read More

  • Vina Zaco Albarino Rías Baixas 2015


    Frosted lemon, mineral salinity and hints of white peach on the nose with a whiff of sea breeze. Tart, rich and refreshing on the palate, this brings zesty grapefruit, lemon and melon fruit flavors alongside a bite of acidity, finishing with citrus zest and creamy melon. Read More
