Heaven & Hell Treixadura Blend 2021

Elegant white blend of Albariño and other less well known white grape varietals. Nice and refreshing. Will definitely be a regular in the rotation. — 6 months ago

Branco de Santa Cruz Valdeorras Godello Blend 2018

A big, silky white with prominent non-friut aromas... floral (almost petrol), herbs and minerals... and hints of yellow apple and lemon. Lush on the palate with some citrus acid and lingering minerals. Paired with halibut cheeks over chevre-sauced pasta. Happy birthday to me!! — 9 months ago

A Pita Cega Abariño Blend 2015

Flagship white by the amazing Pilar Higuero, one of Spain’s most exciting proponents of biodynamic farming and the unofficial “lideresa” (leader) of the Spanish vignerons association “Artisan Wine Attraction.” The wine is named after the traditional children’s game “a pita cega” (“blindman’s buff” in English, literally “the blind hen” in Galician language) and the tools used to clean up vineyards in this spectacular biodynamic farm: a flock of chicken (Her red wine labels, on the other hand, feature the sheep used to graze and fertilize soils). Blend of mostly Albariño, Treixadura and other indigenous varieties, fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and aged on its lees for 20 months. Very expressive, complex nose with aromas of apples, white fruit, fennel, floral notes and minerals. Medium to full bodied, round, sumptuous on the palate. Lively, fresh, vibrant, good acidity. Amazing wine ⚡️ — 3 years ago

Do Zoe Rías Baixas Albariño Blend 2022

This is a surprise. I did an educated pick from a wine store that doesn’t have the best selection. Very nice Albariño. It has all of the characteristics you would expect. Definitely a wine region that casual wine drinkers should look for. If you only drink Chardonnay, try this. I love the saline finish to this wine, like a flavor you would find in a good sherry. Light body, a delicious amount of acid, grapefruit and nectarines, and I get chalk, which is not common, maybe it’s me, but I get chalk in Albariño wine. Look people, drink more Albariño. — 7 months ago

Viña de Martin Escolma White Blend 2014

Blend of treixadura, albarino, lado, and torrontes. Pineapple, mango, starfruit, white flower, dandelion, Meyer lemon peel, with hints of caramel. Very strong, juicy pineapple flavors on the palatte. Age has definitely added some unique complexity to varietals you usually see as aromatic, inexpensive whites but this invokes memories of more sophisticated Napa sauvignon blanc. The color is deep golden, somewhere between a Sauternes and an aged Chardonnay. — a year ago
