La Val Barrica 2012, Albariño Rías Baixas

La Val Barrica 2012, white wine Albariño from Rias Baixas, Galicia, the north west of Spain. Nine months´ barrel fermented to achieve a unique taste and aromas to intense fruits with toasted notes. 

Luis Gutierrez tasting note (The wine advocate): "The range could not do without a barrel-fermented wine, and the La Val Fermentado en Barrica is Albariño sourced from the Finca Arantei vineyard which finishes fermentation in oak barrels where it aged in contact with the fine lees for some nine months, and then rests for over one year in stainless steel before being bottled. It's quite marked by the oak, with a creamy nose showing smokey notes and aromas of orange peel. The palate has a creamy texture and polished acidity, with a mixture of citric and freshly-cut herb aromas. Unusual, and not usually my style, but somehow it works 6,658 bottles produced."

Sommelier Recomendation: Enjoy with baked fish, with or without sauce and seafood, as well as fresh and medium-cured cheese, foie-gras, rice dishes and pasta.
