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 »

  • That was a nice dinner we enjoyed in Glen Ellen, Fox.  I'd purchased ... ... one that is not from the Rias Baixas?  This one is from Costers del Segre.  From some on-line research, I have learned that 90% of Spanish Albarino comes from Rias Baixas.  I now know at at least some of the remaining 10% comes from Costers del Segre which is in the C...
