A fresh and mineral Albarino from the Spanish home (Rias Baixas) of this wonderful white grape. Owner Jorge Ordonez was instrumental in the international explosion of what is now Spain's most well known white wine style, bringing modern winemaking and textural lees aging to a formerly rustic tradition. Grown on beautiful pergola vines of really decent age, this proper Rias Baixas Albarino is a serious Eurpoean white made for seafood and the aperitif hour.

Overview

Grape

Albarino

Its Origins

Jorge Ordóñez founded Bodegas La Caña in 2003 with the aim of creating an Albariño white wine of great quality. A true terroir-oriented wine. More than ten years later, with the aid of New Zelander Natalie Christensen, he reached his goal. La Caña 2015 is a varietal Albariño from Rías Baixas coming from a selection of 12 of the 38 little plots planted before 1990 in the Salnés valley. The grapes come from low-yielding vines, an all of the vinification process is carried out following traditional techniques. Manually harvested, 25% of the grapes were fermented in 500 and 600-litre French oak barrels, while the rest completed the process in stainless steel tanks.

What The Critics Say

92/100 James Suckling (2018 vintage)

"Pineapple, lemon meringue, grapefruit and cloves. Medium-bodied and very tangy. Loads of apricot and citrus character. Drink now."

91/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (2017 vintage)

"Light, green-tinged yellow. High-pitched aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, jasmine and dusty minerals, along with a hint of tarragon. Tightly wound Meyer lemon and quince flavors show very good depth and flesh out steadily on the back half. Deftly blends power and finesse and finishes with solid grip and impressively persistent citrus fruit and floral qualities. (65% stainless steel and 35% large French oak casks.)"
