Albariño 2015

NÉBOA

The cooler, higher elevation Condado do Tea subregion gives rise to a fresh, precise expression of Albariño in general and this particular site lends an intense mineral streak through the wine. A floral, blossomy nose with peach and apricot aromas which carry through on the palate with taut structure, complex fresh fruit, understated mid-palate weight, all on a strong backbone of mineral acidity.

Reviews

  • "90 points. (made from 75-year-old vines planted on slate-based soil, which is a relative rarity in the region): Light, bright gold. Spicy, high-pitched aromas of underripe pear, minerals and white flowers. Dusty, dry and focused on the palate, offering taut, refreshingly bitter-edged citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Closes clean, silky and very long, with an echo of zesty citrus fruits and strong cut." (vinous, 2014 vintage)
