2008 Bodegas La Cana Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1049408

Bodegas La Cana is the newest joint project from Jorge Ordonez and the Gil family of Jumilla. The vines were planted in 1966 in the northern part of Rias Baixas close to the Atlantic ocean. The classic sandy soils of the region and cool climate produce a vibrant wine of tremendous acidity and complexity. The wine is partially barrel fermented and all of it spends time sur lie to enhance the richness of the varietal. It has a range of citrus flavors, stony minerality and a mouthwatering finish. (Keith Mabry, K&L Hollywood) According to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Yellow-gold. Ripe pear and peach on the nose, with notes of pungent herbs and talc adding energy. Fleshy, weighty apple and pear flavors are enlivened by notes of orange and honeysuckle, with a kick of white pepper on the back. For a rich wine this boasts good energy and finishing clarity." (Sept/Oct '08)
