Lagar de Besada 2012 Rías Baixas Baladiña Albariño (Wine Review)

Light touches of honey add nuance to the tropical white fruit scents in this albariño. It’s firm in texture, shaped by a fierce acidity. For pan-roasted calamari.

Pazo Señorans 2014 Rías Baixas Albariño (Wine Review)

In typical Pazo Señorans style, this is a voluptuous charmer. Its flavors of ripe pears and apricots merge into a creamy texture, finely delineated by a firm acidity, a structure that backlights the ripe fruit.

Attis 2014 Rías Baixas Lías Finas Albariño (Wine Review)

Long defined by its long lees contact, this is a buttery, ripe, round, expansive style of albariño. It moves slowly and gracefully through the mouth, creating a wake of flavor in scents of pineapple and lime. Drink it now with fried calamari.

Granbazán 2014 Rías Baixas Etiqueta Ambar Albariño (Wine Review)

From the Finca Tremoedo, just a few steps from the sea, Ambar is Granbazán’s flagship. It has a strong saline and mineral presence, the structure layered with fresh white fruit flavors. It feels tight and vital, ready to chill for gambas al ajillo.

Mar de Frades 2014 Rías Baixas Val do Salnés Albariño (Wine Review)

Delightfully simple at first, with almost crunchy acidity, this slowly reveals a spicy, fruity richness of flavor, with notes of fresh mint and rosemary adding complexity. It’s the kind of wine I never get tired of drinking, especially in summer, with mussels.

Condes de Albarei 2014 Rías Baixas Albariño (Wine Review)

This is among the freshest of the 2014 albariños we tasted this year. It’s easy to drink, yet complex with flavors of stones and citrus fruit, both coming together to form a radiant, luminous white. Pair it with salmon tartare.

Adegas Morgadio 2015 Rias Baixas Legado del Conde Albarino (Wine Review)
