Bursting with citrus and mineral flavors, this white is a textbook example of Albariño, arguably Spain’s greatest white grape.
What You Need To Know
The lush, green river valleys of Galicia, on Spain’s Atlantic coast, look more like Ireland than Spain, with drizzly wet weather to match. Its native grapes are perfectly adapted to the cool, damp climate, and its crisp white wines pair deliciously with seafood. The best-known of these is Albariño, the focus of the boutique O Rei de Campoverde label. Working out of a 1762 stone farmhouse that was completely renovated a few years ago, this family-owned estate produces a single Albariño each year. Cool fermentation and gentle handling of the hand-picked grapes create a vibrant, layered white with superb focus to its laser-pure flavors.
