At the points where the steep hillside vineyards merge with the serene Rias, there are groves of rush canes, also known as juncos that happen to be as representative of Galicia as Albariño grape. Indigenous to the border region that separates Spain from Portugal, Albariño is known to produce medium to light-bodied white wines. One such wine is bodegas la cana albarino which is further enriched with peach and citrus fruits to entice an oenophile with its lush aromas of white peaches and ripe pears followed by flavours of pineapple and bright citrus and finishing on a crisp dry note. This clear and bright straw yellow wine giving off green reflections embodies excellence of the vintage in Rias Baixas.
The first thing that attracts you is a curiously fragrant nose of mineral, lemon zest, and spring flowers that jumps from the glass. It exhibits a creamy texture on the palate with a vibrant acidity, and a lengthy, refreshing finish. You can drink it over the next 3-5 years and not be disappointed. Priced at $15.97, bodegas la cana albarino is a must to make those sultry summer evenings, pleasanter.
Pineapple, lemon, seashell and salt scents carry through on the pure, silky palate… finishes very long with brilliant acidity, rich citrus fruit flavors, fine minerals and just a hint of almond. Absolutely delicious!
