Blend/Grape Varietal: Albarino
Region of Origin – Spain / Galicia / Rias Baixas
Taste: On the palate, Albariño offers flavors of lemon zest, grapefruit, honeydew, nectarines, and salt, ending with a tingly finish that often has a subtle bitter note. The slight bitter flavor comes from the thick skins of the grapes, though this consequently makes Albariño great for palate cleansing (& food pairing!). Straw yellow color with golden hints. This wine expresses traces of lime and grapefruit.

Very fresh and vivid with sliced-apple, orange-peel, stone and salt aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and a bright finish. Lovely combination of pure fruit and hints of the sea. Drink now.

The 2020 La Caña Albariño delivers excellent fruit and purity of this grape variety.
This wine shines with aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, dried earth, and chalkiness. Enjoy it with pan-fried Dover sole. (Tasted: March 21, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
WS 91 Wine Spectator
Firm acidity supports the round texture in this solid white, whose peach and lime flavors are balanced by brine and blanched almond notes. Reserved, but harmonious and deep. Drink now
WE 90 Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of green pear and lychee pave the way for flavors of grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple and roasted almond. This light-yellow wine feels good in the mouth from first sip to the zesty finish.

All Albariño, the 2020 La Caña reveals a lighter gold hue as well as a vibrant, racy, medium-bodied style in its crushed citrus and lemon fruit as well as notes of charcoal, white pepper, and chalky minerality. It has bright, almost racy acidity and will be a great match with tapas.
Pairing: Typically, Albarino from Rias Baixas goes well with pastas (non-tomato based), a wide array of shellfish dishes, vegetarian fare, appetizers and snacks, and of course, white fish. For our purposes today, we’re sharing a recipe for Pasta With Tuna, Capers and Scallions by Melissa Clark. It’ll take only about 30 minutes, and will yield 3-4 servings.
