03/04/2017 – Salneval Rias Baixas Barrica

(2017) What a delicious take on Rias Baixas this is, with the unusual hint of oak from barrel ageing giving a sweet, rounding infill of cream and vanilla - not too much - to the racy, seaside-fresh fruit of classic Albariño. Broader in texture too, there's a nutty apple dryness and lick of salt and lemon pith in the juicy acidity of the finish. Undoubtedly a star of this special collection for me.

    I’m no wine connoisseur but reminds me of a certain Chilean Erruzizuz barrel wild ferment Chardonnay – but lighter with more Lemon
