Pineapple, lemon meringue, grapefruit and cloves. Medium-bodied and very tangy. Loads of apricot and citrus character. Drink now. July 26, 2019

Denominacion de Origen: D.O. Rias Baixas
Location: Town of Zamar, Villa Garca de Arousa, Valley of Salnes, D.O. Rias Baixas
Varietal: 100 Albario
Vineyards: Finca Do Zar and San Clemezo (Salns)
Year(s) Planted: Do Zar: 1970; San Clemenzo: 1984
Viticulture: Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Planted in the pergola system. Cultivated completely by hand.
Soils: Very acidic sandy soils originating from the granite mother rock.
Climate: Atlantic climate. Very humid for the majority of the year with warm summers. Influenced by the gulf stream.
Winemaking: Hand-harvested and stored in small baskets. 25 fermentation by indigenous yeast in French oak puncheons and demi-muids (500-600 L. barrels, respectively). 75 fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
Ageing: 8 months sur lie in the fermentation vessel. 25 in puncheons and demi-muids and 75 in stainless steel, with battonage.
Comments: La Caa is a wine that Jorge Ordez and his winemaking team craft to demonstrate the potential that Albario shows as a high quality, serious wine. As Jorge was the first person to export this variety, he has a tremendous passion and appreciation for Albario, and as a result, feels the variety should be used to produce serious wines. La Caa demonstrates the complexity, intensity, and longevity Albario can achieve when sourced from old vineyards and using serious winemaking practices.

"Likely pleasing to almost any white wine drinkers palate. I normally like dry, oaky Chardonnay, and this was a nice alternative. (Please excuse the lack of an apostrophe in drinkers, but this box will apparently not allow that kind of punctuation.)"
