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 »

  • Torres Pazo Das Bruxas Albarino 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Quite lovely. Golden in the Glass. Loads of Herbs, Minerals, and Stone Fruit. High level of Acidity, but with a surprising roundness, even oilyness, in the mouth. There seems to be a bit of oak which provides a long, smooth finish. Bits of Orange Rind as it opens up.One of the better Albarinos I have had. Read More

  • Señorio de Rubios Robalino Albariño 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely tropical on the nose with some pineapple and nectarine notes alongside more cool notes of green apple and lemon. This has incredible zestiness on the palate with sharp acidity and fruit notes of fresh green apple, pear and green melon, stony minerality and a chalky earthiness towards the finish that touches lightly on cream towards the fi...

  • Rectoral Do Umia Viñabade Albariño 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Simple and bright fresh lemon and green apple aromas on the nose. This is emollient in the mouth with soft fleshy fruit notes of melon and papaya, a bit of creaminess coming through on the mi2015d palate amidst the green apple and lemon notes, and finishing a bit grassy and waxy with good length.

  • Fillaboa Albariño 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Delicate salinity and notes of melon and green apple on the nose and some soft floral hints. Powerful immediately on entry with driving acidity and good crisp minerality but there's a lot of floral character here with white blossom and sunflower notes amidst peach and lemon, finishing creamy and warm.
