A fresh and mineral Albariño from the Spanish home of this wonderful white grape. Owner Jorge Ordóñez was instrumental in the international explosion of what is now Spain's most well known white wine style, bringing modern winemaking and textural lees aging to a formerly rustic tradition. Grown on beautiful pergola vines of really decent age, this proper Rías Baixas Albariño is a serious Eurpoean white made for seafood and the aperitif hour.
92/100 James Suckling (2018 Vintage)
"Pineapple, lemon meringue, grapefruit and cloves. Medium-bodied and very tangy. Loads of apricot and citrus character. Drink now."

91/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (2017 Vintage)
"Light, green-tinged yellow. High-pitched aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, jasmine and dusty minerals, along with a hint of tarragon. Tightly wound Meyer lemon and quince flavours show very good depth and flesh out steadily on the back half. Deftly blends power and finesse and finishes with solid grip and impressively persistent citrus fruit and floral qualities. (65% stainless steel and 35% large French oak casks.)"
