Passion for Spanish wine



Lourido Selección de Fincas 2018 Blanco

Gerardo Méndez, Rías Baixas

Grapes are sourced from a vineyard in Castrelo in the Arousa estuary, facing La Toja island, and planted on xabre (decomposed granite) soils. After spending 14 months with its lees, this Albariño feels really lively and fresh with citrus, white fruit and dried herb aromas. The palate has weight and some saltiness even if the producer says it's due to the soil rather than to the vines' proximity of the sea. Well-defined, persistent palate with tension and cellaring potential. 17.5 points
