Nestled on the bank of the Miño River, Adegas Valtea has a special mesoclimate that beautifully ripens its grapes. The best bunches of Albariño are handpicked and gently pressed at the peak of their maturity. Tasting notes from the winery: "Straw-yellow color with green and golden glints, clean and bright. Intense fruity nose of apricot, pineapple, and apple with hints of white flowers. Full and fleshy palate with a balanced acidity that gives it freshness. Persistent with an elegance and lingering finish."
This is a delicious Albariño, always one of our top two or three for someone looking for a classic expression of this white wine. A wonderfully mineral nose leads to bright, succulent, yellow stone fruit flavors with more than a wisp of salinity adding freshness and making it pretty difficult to not gulp this one down quickly. Palacio de Fefiñanes is the oldest known brand of Albariño and the first to have bottled their wine. Based in the "birthplace of Albariño," the seaside town of Cambados, the winery purchases fruit from 60 growers, many of whom own... Read More »
Albarino is the perfect summer white, but its naturally crisp acidity and peachy citrus flavors make it enjoyable year-round as an aperitif or paired with a variety of foods, particularly shellfish and seafood. It hails from the Rias Baixas zone of Gallicia, on the northwest coast of Spain. Walk through any given fishing village along the "rias" (fjords) in this beautiful, cool, maritime-influenced region and you will find fresh grilled "pulpo" (octopus) vendors at every corner! A classic Albarino nose of white peach, citrus and mineral aromas gives way ... Read More »
1583 commemorates the birth year of the Viscount of Fefinanes, who built the castle of Fefinanes (back in 1647!) that houses the winery. This historic producer was the first to bottle wine under the DO Rias Baixas denomination. Their wines are 100% Albariño, and very much express the tradition of the region. In this bottle, you'll find a bright and silky wine with ripe fruit notes and a touch of roundness from oak aging. Pour it alongside shellfish or grilled chicken.
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Terra de Cuques is a new white first produced in 2011; a village wine produced with Pedro Ximenez and 20% Muscat and aged in old wood. It is a soil-driven white, with a strong chalky sensation (the PX is planted on calcareous soils). There are notes of yellow flowers, fennel and Mediterranean herbs, iodine, not very showy, somehow restrained, subtle and a little spicy. A tasty wine, dry, with a strong mineral feeling, both varieties perfectly assembled, without the Muscat marking much (harvested early). A very gastronomic white, perfect with sea ...Read More »

This is one of the most singular Albariños being made today, by one of Spain's most talented and busy winemakers, Raul Pérez. Big yellow stone fruits, with a decidedly saline quality, show much more intensity, purity and interest than most other Albariños out there. A must-have for anyone who wants a superlative example of what this grape can achieve. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)
92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light gold. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes poached pear, toasted nuts, lemon curd and smoky minerals; smells a lot like a wine from the Jura. Sappy, broad and dry, displaying an array of intense orchard and pit fruit flavors that are given spine and bite by firm acidity. Closes chewy and long, with zesty mineral cut and lingering notes of almond and bitter citrus pith. (JR)" (9/2013) K&L Notes: Based in the village of Torroja, Terroir al Limit represents the vanguard in a newly energized Priorat. Proprietor Dominik Huber produces bright, expressive, mineral dr...
