Cinco Islas Albariño

DO Rias Baixas – 100% Albariño Made from 100% Albariño grapes from the Salnés Valley. This grape has an extraordinary aromatic range, from flowers and fresh fruit in its youth, to ripe apple and candied honey as it matures. The creamy, delicate flavor is laced with memories of citrus; a luxury for the senses to be discovered as you savour our wines. Tasting Note: Pale yellow with notes of lemon, peach and tropical fruit aromas. Round, ripe and savory with a slightly exotic personality. It’s nicely textured and over-delivers in the finish. Excellent minerality..

Castel de Fornos Albariño

DO Rias Baixas, Spain (100% Albariño) 750 ml “Bright and clear, the color of hay with a glint of green, Castel de Fornos is a high intensity wine with a torrent of complex aromas. First come the floral hints (gardenia, rose, orange blossom) then the fruit (apricot, orange peel, honey) with a background of herbs (laurel, anise, mint). The bouquet is that of a wonderful English garden.” ~Guide to Wines, Spirits and Wineries of Galicia (2013) RECENT REVIEWS Apple, melon and a dusty scent of white pepper get this round, apple-driven Albariño going. Pineapple, lime and orange flavors are solid and finish with a note of almond skin and bitter citrus pith. Drink immediately. 87 Points. — Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast (8/1/2015) AÑ03.
