The grapes for this wine come from 11.5 Ha of vineyards (5.2 Ha are estate owned and 6.3 Ha are owned by local growers) divided amongst 12 parcels located in Sisan Ribadumia in the Salnes Valley, the most northern part of the Rias Baixas very near the Atlantic ocean. The vines were planted in 1966 in the pergola system, traditional for this area. The soils are very sandy and have a high acidity due to their proximity to the ocean. Yields are 4.5 T/Ha.

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

light and crisp. Slightly acidic on the pallet with notes of citrus fruit.

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...

For a spanish white wine under 12 dollars it is impressive! Good balance, nice fruit, Good price...I did not have this with food, but i can see it doing well with raw seafood.

I wasn't a fan... I picked up this bottle a while ago and today I recognized the bottle, not remembering what I thought of it. Oh no..It was the one bad bottle I ever bought. I am not much of a wine buff so forgive me if my description isn't the best, but I do order my fare share of Albarinos when out , often failing to remember the name because I never had been disappointed. I love albarinos, because they a subtle, crips and clean taste with just the right amount of fruit. Its the perfect wine for a hot summer day ( or any day really for me ) but this one lacked so much of this. I was so in your face... I expect that more of a Chardonnay, but this one left a bad taste in my mouth. So much that I will never forget the name now just in case it creeps its way onto a menu while I am out. I will write about the BEST tasting Albarino I had recently elsewhere on this blog.

light, crisp, fruity. Taste a bit of citrus on the pallet (grapefruit).

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 **
