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.)"
