Gorgeously fruity, fresh white with an exuberant nose of passionfruit, hawthorn and honey, followed by a medium-bodied, zingy palate of citrus fruits. Clean, minerally finish with the faintest suggestion of maritime Galicia.
Enjoy this perennial customer and staff favourite with seafood or as an aperitif.
“Full on flavours of gooseberry, peaches, and white flowers. Inviting creaminess.”Decanter World Wine Awards , Silver Medal (2010 vintage)

Albariño is synonymous with the rainy DO of Rías Baixas in north-west Spain, where it accounts for 90% of all plantings. Officially, 12 varieties are allowed in the DO, but little is seen of the other whites - Loureiro, Caiño blanco, Treixadura, Godello, Torrontés - and less again of the six permitted red grapes.Rías Baixas is named after the flooded coastal valleys - rías - that penetrate 30km inland along the length of the region.
