Mar de Frades, Albariño 2023

(2024) The distinctive blue packaging and sea-spray label sends the message that this wine comes from the Salnés Valley and some of the vineyards most exposed to the Atlantic weather in all of Galicia. It has classic Rías Baixas aromatics, with saline notes mingling with lemon and crisp green apple. On the palate there is real intensity here - moreso than in some examples - with a bite of citrus acidity anchoring the medium-bodied, cool fruit character. That ozoney, seaside nuance is never far away in a very high quality Albariño. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas. Also in independent merchants.
