2014 Adegas Valtea "Finca Garabato" Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1283668

Finca Garabato is a parcel of Valtea's oldest wines. You will notice that it says "2o Año" on the label, which refers to the fact that it ages in tank on its lees for a year following fermentation. This gives the wine a lovely richness, which, particularly in a cooler vintage like 2014, really ramps up the flavor and textural qualities of the wine. Still refreshing, only richer and ready to take on a meal.

Valtea is one of my absolute favorite new producers from Rias Baixas. Typically I am attracted to tangy, briny Albarino from the coastal regions, but this winery hails from a sub zone a little further inland. This makes for a slightly more robust style of Albarino. In the "Finca Garabato" bottling, the wine rests on its lees for an entire year, resulting in a wine with plenty of depth and texture. The flavors also are more autolytic and savory, as opposed to the more fruit-forward younger wine they produce. But don't be deceived: although this is a richer wine, there is still great freshness and acidity with classic Albarino flare.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
