The Albamar Albariño is a blend of different vineyards, which are all composed of mainly sandy soil. Each parcel is fermented separately with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. The Albariño is aged on its fine lees for about five months. There is light filtration at bottling.
Tasting Notes: Albamar's entry-level Albariño is a refreshing and pure wine showing great length and salty minerality. This tasty treat will pair well with your favorite seafood. Try ceviche, fish tacos, shrimp pasta, crab, sushi...the list is endless!

" 93pts Dried pineapple, salted lemon, roasted hazelnut, smoke and flint on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Vibrant, flinty and textured. Dried lemon on the long finish."

The eponymous 2020 Albamar is an Albariño from many different plots, mostly on granite soils, fermented and matured in stainless steel and oak foudre where they look for an easy-drinking and fresh expression of Salnés by blocking malolactic fermentation. This is sharp and fresh—going back to the style of the 2018—integrated, has unnoticeable oak and is nicely balanced, with the stuffing to develop nicely in bottle.
