(2016) Bodegas Attis's rendition of Albariño has a natural character to the aromas, subtle and lightly earthy over some oatmeal and crisp orchard fruit. It's cool on the palate too, fairly understated with its citrus and crisp apple tones, but nicely textured, glimpses of sweeter nectarine on the mid-palate, and a nicely composed, quite long finish. Stockist and price quoted is for the 2012 vintage.
(2016) There's a really pleasing herb and nettle touch to this wine, fermented with ambient yeasts, adding a little hint of wildness to lovely pert fruit and shimmering lemon fresh acidity. A clear and bright example of lovely quality.
(2016) From northerly vineyards close to the Portuguese border and schist (slate) soils, this is juicy but full, and packed with fruit and substance. Really tangy and personality-packed stuff, it shimmers with vitality.
(2016) The Co-op of Condes de Albarei's Albariño is delicately perfumed and ultra-fresh and refined aromatically, delicate seashells and flowers amongst the downy peaches. In the mouth it's all citrus and slightly tart apple, a good crisp and lively style, though perhaps just a tad harsh in the finish after that lovely nose.
(2016) A particularly birght and zippy Albariño this one, punchily limey and crisp clean apple fruited, with a little floral edge adding interest. Despite the low alcohol it packs a flavour wallop, lots of citrus, lots of clean, lean orchard fruit and just hints of peach or nectarine flitting at the edges. A very nice example.
(2015) >From the Rias Baixas outpost of a Rioja giant, this is sea breezy and salty with a tang of lime skins and a cool apple hint. The palate is really fresh, lots of citrus to the acidity, a hint of that saltiness, but it is quite full textured and has good, leesy and fruit weight. A good buy on the offer price.
(2014) More subdued aromatically, a touch of something nutty or creamy, a little cashew hint even, but clean and poised apple fruit. The palate has real juiciness, a big stripe of citric and mineral acidity, flashing through the sour lemon, mouth-watering richness of the finish.
