2013 Bodega Vidas "Siete Vidas" Albarín Cangas

SKU #1186473

Albarín, no relation to Albariño of Galician fame, is a variety indigenous to Asturias, the beautiful portion of Spain best known for great blue cheeses and tart ciders. While the region is not yet well known as a wine growing region, it is not without its ideal climates and soils for fine wine production, and grapes have been growing in the slate soils of Cangas for a long time. This is delicious white wine, more than a mere curiosity from a beautiful, under-explored region, or an example of a novel grape variety. The fruit flavors are bright and focused, with yellow stone fruits and tangy green pears as well. The texture and fatty richness combined with elegant, cutting acidity reminds me of dry Vouvray. There is an undeniable drinkability here, but do not expect something merely "fun," this is serious and a wine to pay close attention to as you become better acquainted with it. Very good stuff - I'll be drinking some this holiday season. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)
