  1. Paco and Lola Ophalum Albarino 2019
    Paco and Lola Ophalum Albarino 2019
    Paco and Lola is an iconic 'co-operativo' in the Rías Baixas producing Albariño, the best seafood white in Spain. Based in the Salnés Valley sub-region of the Rías Baixas, the label represents over 400 small growers, each with an average vineyard holding of just over half a hectare.

    Paco and Lola's entry-level white, Ophalum Albariño, comes from parcels of grapes selected for their greater ripeness, resulting in a fruit-driven white: ripe mango and papaya characters on the nose, with a citrus tang on the palate.

  2. Eidosella 'Charquino' Albarino 2019
    Eidosella 'Charquino' Albarino 2019
    Founded in 2003, Bodegas Eidosela is the brainchild of a small group of enterprising, like-minded local growers (61 in total) dedicated to producing their own, quality Rías Baixas wines. Bodegas Eidosela is located in the sub-zone Condado de Tea (county of the River Tea, which flows into the Miño) and has a total of 48 hectares under vine, planted to Albariño, Treixadura and Loureiro in 600 separate parcels, the biggest being just 2 ha. Each vineyard is owned by a member of the Bodegas' co-operative.

    Stainless steel handling, with 50% of the blend aged 4 months on lees in tank.
    Prickly pear, small green apples, pomelo, cut white nectarine, preserved lemon, straw, a nice briny tang and lovely bitter herbs: rocket, white pepper, radish, cut fennel. 100% varietal in a very stylish, smooth, mid-weight register. With juicy acidity and a nice little nutty snap to close, the fruit tannins are perfectly handled (so often the Achilles heel of this tricky variety). PWS

  3. Serra da Estrela Albarino 2020
    Serra da Estrela Albarino 2020
    Adegas Valmiñor was first stablished in 1997 and have embraced the tradition of the lands with a touch of modernity. They have access to an amazing array of native Riais Baixas grapes across numerous and varied soils that bring an added complexity to their wines that many lack.

    This is made in 100% stainless steel preserving all that wonderful coastal vibe and energy in the wine. A touch  of apricot, peach and ripe exotic fruits complemented by lime and citrus notes that run a thread from top to tail. Its fresh and lively with some wonderful zip that complements the punchy fruits. Mid-weight with lots of energy and a mineral drive that completes the package. Perfect summer fair!

  4. Castro Martin Sobre Lias Raw Power Albarino 2019
    Castro Martin Sobre Lias Raw Power Albarino 2019
    The wines here grow in pure granitic sands, and are 100% Albariño. Castro Martín is still owned and run by the founding family; the Bodega's history can be traced back as far as 1887. The philosophy at Castro Martín is simple: to make the best quality wine possible at the most competitive price. The team are constantly re-examining their work, improving and including innovative techniques where possible, whilst still respecting the tradition of the region.

    This 'cuvee' is bottled unfiltered which adds (retains) a layer of energy, an extra dash of vibrancy and texture.

    Beautiful savoury pear, with yellowed straw and apple cider on the nose, and CM's trademark smooth-fruited journey in the mouth. Almost certainly the most savoury CM yet, it is a little richer than usual, but the full-fruitedness is textural rather than fruity as such, with apple-skin fruit tannins tucking everything in and the lees ageing for savoury mouthfeel. Pear-apple 'two fruits' plus nectar florals and super texture, hmmm ... it's a dead-set beaut!
