La Val Albarino Sobre Lias (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
This Rias Baixas pioneer was founded in 1985 and has made its name over the past two decades for producing classically-styled, great quality, Albariño. There are five sub-regions in Rias Baixas. Bodegas La Val are based in Condado do Tea - away from the coast and just over the Portuguese border. In 2003 they built a brand new winery in Arantei, over-looking the Miño river, and equipped with the most modern winemaking technology.
The Albarino Sobre Lias remains on its fine lees for 3 years - these lees are 'refreshed' (ie. the old lees are replaced with fresh lees from the new vintage) - a rather unique process! The result is a complex and serious Albariño which is only produced in the very best vintages. Complex aromas with citrus, pineapple, hay and dried flower. On the palate a ripe citrus character is balanced by a hint of stone fruit and minerality. The result is a white wine with great texture and weight, with a refreshing saline twist balancing notes of marmalade on the finish. Wonderful with fish and seafood - including oven-baked dishes.
