Bodegas la Cana Albariño Rías Baixas 2010
The vineyards were planted in 1966. All of the Albarino grapes are trained in the pergola system, allowing the fruit to remain high off the ground , which maximizes the health of the grapes and greatly reduces the need for fungicides. Approximately 70% to 80% of the wine is fermented in stainless steel; the remainder, along with its yeast lees, is fermented in large-format French oak barrels until bottling.
Editorial Reviews for Bodegas la Cana Albariño Rías Baixas
An interesting ripe nose of nectarine, soil tones, walnut oil and a hint of salty seashell greet the nose. Very smooth on entry with acidity that is well wrapped in kiwi and peach fruit. The acidity pops a bit on the back end which shows off nice complexity with a hint of nutshell and some gentle mineral tones with a very subtle vegetal edge. Finishes with good length and a green grapey freshness. This is fairly opulent but at the same time it’s awfully appealing. 90pts
Binny's 8/28/15. Served at my 69th party. Mostly lady friends, who were stuck on Pinot Grigio, and had never tasted Albarino raved about it. Sadly? for me it was an evening of sipping fine whiskey.
Excellent albarino from Rias Baixas Spain. The nose is not overly aromatic but fairly citrusy. The palate is crisp, nicely acidic, with hints of lemon cream, orange peel, a touch of baking spice, and a medium finish.
Excellent albarino! Lemon chiffon and peach, a touch of tartness but also some creaminess. Very well balanced with medium crisp acidity and nice mouth feel. Going to stock some more of this for the summer.
Floral on the nose, nice acidity but a bit too bitter on the finish.
light and crisp. Slightly acidic on the pallet with notes of citrus fruit.
Note from tasting: juicy, strong fruit at start ["Assorted Whites" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 21 Apr 2012.]
I got a bottle off 67 wines after reading the reviews...It is a nice summer wine, but i think it liked a little bit of acid and fruit. This is not to say it is not good, but a bit too tame for me. I would buy it again...

Aromas of white peaches lychee nuts and spring flowers jump from the glass of this 100% old vine Albarino. The 2011 La Cana from a relatively new winery founded in 2008 is medium-bodied elegant and slightly restrained for an Albarino (which are usually flamboyant and aromatic). Fermented in both stainless steel and large format French oak this dry white exhibits excellent texture as well as length. Drink it over the next year. - Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Bodegas La Cana's 2010 Albarino was fermented in stainless steel (80%) and larger barrels (20%) and aged sur lie. Mineral, lemon zest, baking spices, and floral notes inform the nose of this round, smooth-textured, savory white. With excellent volume and length, this outstanding value will provide pleasure for another 3-4 years. ** SOLD OUT **

This wine is a riper style of Albariño. On the palate, it's gentle and peachy with some lingering mineral and rock notes that add complexity and exemplify classic Rías Baixas character. The finish shows peach, yellow apple, and even some tropical fruits.
