Bodegas del Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño Rías Baixas Albariño D Fefiñanes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Fresh fruit aromas of apricot and peach slices with notes of lemon and green apple. Pretty notes of honey and wet nutmeg, and the mouth is round, clean, and pleasant with baked apple, honey, and lemon. This is a classic Albariño which is good young, but actually improves over two to three years and remains quite drinkable for up to five years. Owner Juan Gil comments that the wine really starts to come into its own in June/July, and he actually prefers it 18 or more months after it's made. A Fefiñanes "vertical" of three or four vintages can provide some most interesting surprises.

Bodegas del Palacio de Fefiñanes:
Wine is like people, in that the closer it comes t0 its roots, the closer it comes to its real identity. In Bodegas del Palacio dc Fefinanes we put this identity first and foremost. Our wines speak clearly of their landscape, their soil, with the fullness of a singular variety: the Albarino grape, as powerful and evocative as it is scarce. This is the fruit of our labours over the past hundred years and more. A tradition that is now part of our history.

Very pretty, clear, straw-colored in the glass. Floral bouquet--honeysuckle. Quite light on the palate, some sort of melon going on. Very slight oak--very slight. Refreshing, but I would like to see a tad more acid tartness for what seems to be a summer wine. US$23.99 at Wine Club.

Lightly effervescent and delicate golden color. The nose is a bit musty with some woody notes that I at first took for cork, but it may not be. On the palate it is mustier, and I'm starting to think this is a bad bottle. The finish sums it up, lightly corked, but just enough as to where it loses it's freshness.

Light gold/green in color. Bright fruit, with light peach and lime notes. Just bottled and thus has a slight sparkle in the mouth and it needs a bit of time to calm down. Flavors of melon, lime, make this wine a fresh fun wine to drink. 3.5/5 [NR]

The 2011 Albarino de Fefinanes has a light bouquet of green apple pear and fresh apricot that is well-defined. The palate is well- balanced fresh as a daisy on the entry with a nicely judged seam of citric acidity and a focused almost brittle finish that demonstrates immense clarity. Superb! Drink now-2017. -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

One of our drier Albariños, this one has a mineral edge and floral peach aromas. This was absolutely made for shellfish and other light seafood dishes.
