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 »

  • Terras Gauda 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguingly nutty bouquet of almond and maraschino cherry with more classic white wine notes of lemon meringue and green apple. Palate is lightly spiced and quite velvety with green apple and pear notes, tart acidity and excellent balance, with a finish of toast and butter covered in lemon zest. Beautiful wine.91 pts Read More

  • Licia Albarino Rias Baixas 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A whiff of rose petal on the nose with mostly lemon notes. A bit soft in the mouth, this still shows some good acidity and freshness, lots of lemon on the palate, some soft cheese hints make for a creamy finish.88 pts Read More
