2014 Fefiñanes "1583" Albariño Rias Baixas
Green-tinged yellow. Highly expressive aromas of fresh pear, orange zest and jasmine are enlivened by a strong mineral accent. Silky, sharply focused citrus fruit and floral flavors show outstanding energy, with an undertone of chalkiness and no excess fat. Concentrated but also lithe, with a long, penetrating finish displaying firm mineral bite and a jolt of iodine. (JR)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Even the barrique aged 2014 1583 Albariño de Fefiñanes felt rather light compared with previous vintages. However, with some time it developed some more aromas and the palate felt more intense, with marked acidity and clean flavors. Easy to drink, the oak is quite subtle. 13,995 bottles. (LG)
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.
