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 »

  • Licia Albariño Rías Baixas Licia 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Mary said it was the best white of the year (June 2013). Of course it should be noted, her total to date summer white wine samplings now number two. She consumed this with her friend, Joyce, while I was in Texas visiting our 23 month old granddaughter. I have placed an order for another half case, so I might too enjoy this Albarino. Those additi... Read More

  • Terras Gauda O Rosal 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Terras Gauda is a good wine but one which does not quite justify its price. You can talk to many Gallegos who will tell you that once this bodega got pretty big the quality of the wine started to suffer. It's still a good wine but one that is more at home in the 13-15 dollar range. Read More

  • Bodegas Terras de Lantano Albarino Vina Cartin Rias Baixas NV

    Snoothrank:

    Do yourself a favor and try this under appreciated Albarinho wine from Galicia. It is one of the best Galician whites at this price level. Has had a higher rating than Terras Gaudas at half the price. Read More

  • Albarino Estylo Puro 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pale yellow colour with very slight green tinge. A complex yet subtle nose (floral - not really perfume but more sweet grass/wildflower/chamomile tea, honey, stonefruit, and just a hint of salty/sharp minerality. Really intense and complex on the palate, which was a nice surprise. No oak and complex fruit ranging from crisp apple to sweet stonef... Read More
