Casal Caeiro, Rias Baixas, Spain
Casal Caeiro was established in 1986, in the coolest section of the Rías Baixas DO. From the outset, the winery incorporated several advanced features that are now more widespread, such as stainless steel storage tanks and a three storey design that allows gravity flow to replace pumping.
They preside over just eleven hectares of vineyards, with all of their vines aged between 21 and 50 years old. The combination of these old vines and their cool climate location ensure that the team are able to produce wonderfully complex, refined and elegant examples of Albariño that remind us why this grape has grown in popularity so rapidly in recent years.
Albariño Sobre Lias 2018
From the coolest part of Rias Baíxas, this wine bursts with juicy Albariño character: pear, citrus fruit and hints of mineral and spice. Clean, intense and very long on the palate with a wonderful texture. The ideal partner to all manner of seafood.
