La Val Orballo Albarino (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.
La Val Orballo Albariño is a great value Albariño with all the characteristic floral and perfumed notes you would expect plus bags of fresh, zingy acidity. Ripe aromatics with layers of peach, floral and honeyed notes which mingle with mountain herbs, sweeter mandarin skin and apple note. Generous on the palate with hints of textural ripe gala melon, minerality, and a fresh citrus giving a lively acidity on the finish. The mineral and fruity character from the Arantei grapes is balanced by the freshness of the Taboexa grapes. Baked goats cheese, prawns and other seafood match beautifully with this lovely wine.
