2013 Carballal "Sete Cepas" Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1166008

Produced from younger estate grapes from Carballal's 15 hectares of vineyards, as well as purchased fruit, this Albariño is always hand harvested from carefully grown grapes, organic whenever possible, with treatments used only when absolutely necessary. Very refreshing, with nice bracing acidity, there are hints of exotic fruits as well as stone fruits. A wine to sip with warm weather fare as well as the absolute perfect match with fish and shellfish, the mainstay of coastal Galician cuisine. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

Exceptional value in Albarino. This same wine 6 months ago was good...but now it's really special. Some of the primary fruit has backed off and the intense mineral core is shining through. Lovely savory lees notes and exquisite focus and persistence for such an inexpensive bottle. I'm super impressed by how this has developed.
Top Value!

Carballal returns to our shelves after a brief absence, and this time we have the pleasure of enjoying the wine after a year in bottle. While freshly bottled Carballal shows a hint of fizz, ripe yellow fruits, sometimes just a hint of banana, this is a wine that gains volume, becomes drier and more balanced if allowed the time to do so. I like both versions, but must admit a preference for this more mature, rounder, less fruit forward and more elegant 7 cepas.
