2017 Adegas Valtea Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1379590

Our third vintage of this direct import Albariño, this wine shows everything we like in the grape: hints of lemongrass, lively stone fruit, and a brisk, saline-tinged palate. Located in the sub-zone of Condado do Tea, where the days are a bit warmer and evenings are slightly cooler, there is a wonderful mid-palate presence to complement the typically lean and mineral qualities of Albariño. A classic with any shellfish, especially Dungeness crab!

My only problem in life, or at least this time of year is that I don't drink enough albarino... or white wine in general, but I really like albarino, and this was definitely a good one to start for this year. Peachy and tropical on the palate, it's surprisingly not extremely acidic, and it's a little more weighty, and I think that's why I enjoyed it. It's different from what I'm used to. Should pair super well with clam chowder.

- 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.
