Rías Baixas Wine

 

This region lies along the Atlantic coastline in Galicia, in the northwest part of Spain. The ocean brings a cool microclimate with lots of wet weather, yielding lush, green fields. 
 
It is known for producing Albariño, which is a dry, refreshing white wine with citrus and white stone fruit flavors, with a long, delightful floral finish. Some of these wines also have a light effervescence. The flavors are very versatile and can be paired with many Asian cuisines including sushi, as well as plenty of seafood and shellfish preparations, can take on a pesto, plus soups such as white gazpacho, cauliflower and even butternut squash. 
 
Rías Baixas is divided into five subzones:
 
*Val do Salnes: the coolest area just touching the coastline. Known for producing some of the best wines of the region on gradual slopes and valley floors of the Umia river.
*Condado do Tea: the area farthest from the Atlantic with higher temperatures, producing quality Read more »

  • Ramon Bilbao Albarino Rias Baixas 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 12/2018. A pleasant surprise. I like Albarino, but this bottle went above the norm. Once again it appears to me to be the occasion that makes a wine go beyond the expected. Dinner with 40 year friends was such an occasion. Read More

  • Terras Gauda Albariño 2016

    Soft stone fruit and floral aromas with sweet fruit notes of peach and green apple are delicate and inviting.

    Snoothrank:

    Clean and inviting aromas of fresh peach, lemon and grapefruit with wet slate and salty sea air.

  • D. Pedro D Soutomaior Albariño Rias Baixas 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely floral aromas are a bit vanishing with some woody, mineral lemon notes and faint peach notes. Soft and plush palate of zesty lemon, fresh ocean air but with a buttery texture on the palate that cuts through to the finish where lime and apricot notes play against more salinity and a crisp finish.
