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 »

  • So for Spanish wine drinkers, Albarino is fairly common, more so in the Rias Baixas region where it is the main grape. Not so common for California wine growers as albarino covers less than 200 acres, mainly in the central coast and Lodi. The nose is not overly aromatic but fairly citrusy. The palate is crisp, nicely acidic, with hints of lemon ... Read More

    Excellent albarino from Rias Baixas Spain. The nose is not overly aromatic but fairly citrusy. The palate is crisp, nicely acidic, with hints of lemon cream, orange peel, a touch of baking spice, and a medium finish. Read More
