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 »

  • Adegas d'Altamira Albariño Rías Baixas Brandal 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon and green apples on the nose, very crisp (good acidity). Some minerality in the mid palette, clearly a good match with fish. A bit tart and sour on the finish, but nice. A good crisp, summery wine. Eucalyptus? Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Nice albarino. Rounder and a bit fatter than most albarinos but still a nice wine. Went very well with a smoked gouda. Read More

  • Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Was actually with HondaJohn when i tried this. Lots of orange, lemon and other sweet citrus notes - agree with popsicle as a description. Nice and crisp and refreshing. Good acidity - a real summer wine. Fairly simple, but good at what it does. Would pair very well with chicken salad, or some other lighter summer fare. Read More

  • Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Light golden in color with a lovely green sheen. Very typical aromas you would find from an Albariño including subtle notes of vanilla peach, shale and gorgeous white floral nose. After a weekend of ports, this is a fabulous transition! Nice round mouthfeel, despite it's hollow midpalate, and nice lingering mineral, pear and light creme finish. ... Read More

  • Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Pale gold color with a perfect albarino nose. LIght smokey cream sits at the base of great flesh fruit flavors and floral minerals. Wow that is a hard one to grab, but really this is a nice nose that will keep you going to back to figure it out. In the mouth this wine is fat, and round with lots of nice body, though a light finish. Lime notes mi... Read More
