Campo Viejo Albariño 2018 Rias Baixas

Albariño is currently rather fashionable, particularly when from Rias Baixas in Galicia. It’s a somewhat forgotten, often rainy inland area of North Western Spain. The salty hint to the wine makes it go particularly well with food. From Elena Adell, Campo Viejo’s talented wine maker.

Tasting notes: Pale straw colour. Light-bodied. Citrus, apple and floral notes on the nose. Relatively high acidity. Refreshing citrus flavours. Dry. A good Albariño has a hint of saltiness – this one had a pleasant briny note of minerality. Medium crisp finish. Balanced, acidity. Good wine, fairly priced.
