Rías Baixas (Salnes Valley)

'Tras da Viña' Single Vineyard Albariño 2020


Subtly smoky with a deep solidsy feel due to long lees ageing. There's yellow earthiness, fatly ripe meyer lemons, lemongrass-lime, hay honeycomb and broader prickly pear fleshiness. Chablis-like in the mouth, it has lovely gentle roundness but great structure and acid line. Savoury, lush and deeply textural, the plush orchard fruits palate is softly spicy with a good chunk of mid-palate chew yet retains a good sense of granitic mineral and varietal acid freshness to finish.
