2020 Albariño (Laxas)

Laxas, Albariño, Rias Baixas, Spain, 2020

100% Albariño

TROPICAL AROMATICS, AWESOME MINERALITY, CRISP PEAR FINISH

Fresh, juicy, very dry, and full of minerally terroir, this Albariño from the Laxas (la-shas) winery is first class - produced from old vines in the more oceanic reaches of western Galicia. This white shows an Atlantic saline-like quality which renders it positively delicious with seafood, and the melon, pear, and mineral notes are almost like a meal in themselves. Finishing with impressive length, richness, and a bit of banana essence, this is serious Albariño for the money.

Serving Suggestion:

In Spain they would eat gooseneck barnacles, but here in the US we're more than happy to pair this with nearly any great shellfish, especially mussels will be perfect.

CITRUS & PIÑA COLADA, ZESTY MINERAL

Its citrusy energy is the stuff that seafood-pairing dreams are made of, but this is also a “patio wine” extraordinaire that is guaranteed to quench the thirsts of festive friends and cause oceanic oases to materialize before our very eyes and across our very palates!

Serving Suggestion: Mussels, shrimp, and squid in a buttery, garlicky stew w/ oregano & noodles. Veggie burritos w/ mild salsa verde & cilantro.

Vinho Verde, Portugal, 2019

100% Alvarinho (Albariño)

HONEYSUCKLE, APRICOT, GRANITIC MINERALITY, DRY & RACY

Winemaker Anselmo Mendes, a native of Monção in northwest Portugal, is passionate about both his vineyards and the native varietals which inhabit them. He shares with the world's most conscientious vignerons the important tenet that quality wine is created first and foremost in the vineyard, marrying each grape variety he cultivates with the section of land which best compliments it. His Alvarinho is a remarkably complex wine with focused mineral, elegantly lean fruit, and the sort of unrelenting acidity which makes it particularly well suited for fresh seafood.

Serving Suggestion: Sardinhas assadas (chargrilled sardines) with olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, and shallots. Spicy Vietnamese vermicelli with an assortment of shellfish, mint, and lemongrass.

2020 Alvarinho Superior (Socalcos do Bouro (Corina Maria Pereira Antunes Almeida))

Socalos do Douro, Alvarinho Superior, Vinho Verde (Minho), Portugal 2020

{organic} 100% Alvarinho (Albariño)

PINEAPPLE & PEAR, CITRUSY MINERAL ZEST, KISS O' BANANA

Albariño can still be your favorite Spanish white, but it originates just south of the border in Portugal’s Minho (the Vinho Verde region). Alvarinho, as it is known here, is partially responsible for the fresh, fizzy stuff that that we associate with the region’s best-known wines, but it can also be resplendently restrained and mineralistic or fleshy, full-bodied, and brimming with tropical assertiveness. This offering luxuriously leans toward the latter option.

Serving Suggestion: Citrus-marinated grilled squid tacos. Pineapple-anchovie pizza w/ diced crimini mushrooms & ricotta – gifts from the sea & from the forest...
