Albamar Albariño 2020

Rías Baixas, Galicia, SpainXurxo Alba's family has been farming and making Albariño in Rïas Baixas' O Salnés subregion for generations. It wasn't until Xurxo finished his enology studies that the Alba family started bottling and commercializing their wines in 2006, under his direction. The Alba family owns 2.5 hectares and sources approximately 10 hectares throughout the Atlantic influenced region. This albariño comes from various sandy soiled vineyard, vinified native by parcel in stainless, where it remains for 5 months on lees. Though an entry cuvée, this certainly leaves impact, with fragrant white peach, wild lime, salted marcona almond, anise, sandy spices along a positively salt licked palate. The granite provides a fine buzz to the underlay, one lined with a gentle layer of lees. Youthful, vibrant, and ready to enjoy now.Tasted: 14 July 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
