Fillaboa Albariño Rías Baixas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Alive with complex aromas of freshly cut green apple, juicy pineapple, and hints of citrus, Fillaboa's 2009 Joven Albariño is crystalline and bright in appearance. Soft on the palate, this wine has well integrated acidity and a balanced flavor profile that enhances its freshness and complexity. Unctuous and refined, this spectacular Albariño has a long, lingering finish. The 2009 vintage was truly "rare." Less fruit was produced than usual due to the rains that fell during flower formation, and spring was followed by a cooler-than-normal summer. Overall production was lower than in most years, making the 2009 Fillaboa Albariño a rare gem that one should be sure to taste.

Very pretty on the nose with a subtle, gentle character that shows of soft floral, honey and anise tones. Lovely cut on entry with a nice tactile feel. This has a subtle angular texture and fresh flavors of citrus and green apple fruits with gentle mineral suggestions. The finish exhibits a light pithy bitterness that complements the core of fruit. The finish is floral and apple-scented with good length. 89pts

Tasting Notes:

What makes wine lovers excited by the Albariño grape is twofold: it can smell so sweet and taste so dry and minerally, and it can derive complexity, not from winemaking trickery (I’m looking at you, heavily toasted oak barrels) or intensity, but from layered fruits and a healthy dose of tangy charm. Fillaboa seems an ideal embodiment of those characteristics.
