2012 Vela Rias Baixas Albariño

VELA_BOTTLE_IMAGEWell, it ain’t no Savagnin…

Lower yields in 2012. Not necessarily a bad thing in Rias Baixas. No malolactic fermentation was allowed, presumably to maintain acidity. Six months on lees. Imported by Fourth Wave Wine.

Smells and tastes of apple, daikon, citrus and melon with a little sea spray wafting over the fruit. It has a pleasing amount of body and decent texture with satisfying if very slight grip on the finish. Really smart summer gear. 90
