Tasting Notes

Ripe aromatics with layers of peach, floral and honeyed notes which mingle with mountain herbs, sweeter mandarin skin and apple note. Generous on the palate with hints of textural ripe gala melon, minerality, and a fresh citrus giving a lively acidity on the finish. The mineral and fruity charcter from the Arantei grapes is balanced by the freshness of the Taboexa grapes.

Producer details

La Val is a relative newcomer who, since the bodega was founded 20 years ago, has grown to become one of the largest vineyard owners in Rìas Baixas, with over 90 hectares. As a result, this is one of the most reliable sources of good quality, moderately-priced Albariño.

In the vineyard

This is a blend of grapes from two estates in the south of DO Rias Baixas in Galicia, north west Spain. Taboexa is a 13ha estate at 300m above sea level, with sandy and granitic soil typical of the region. The Arantei estate is at just 30m above sea level - with clay and pebbly soil. Harvest begins in the middle of September. Grapes are hand harvested and collected in 20 kilo crates.

In the winery

70% of the grapes are macerated before pressing for 6 hours at a controlled temperature. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel using natural yeasts, and maturation on the lees is also in stainless steel.

Food Recommendations

The fresh acidity allows it to cut through many foods including baked goats cheese, grilled or fried fish, and Nicoise salad.
