Winemaker's Notes

Columna is a superb wine made from estate owned grapes in the most southern and inland subzone of Rias Baixas (Condado de Tea). Vines are tended in Granite and Slate soil, imparting lots of minerality. Winemaker Rodri Mendez, disciple and right hand man of Raul Perez vinifies Columna in the same winery where Sketch (the under the water wine) is vinified.

Albariño's crisp clean flavors are extremely versatile. Seafood, clams, oysters are what the local Galician people eat with this queenly grape. It also pairs like magic with Sushi, Indian, or Thai. Other pairings that are successful include hard-to-pair, popular take-out meals like cold sesame noodles, chicken tikka masala, pad thai, and tacos.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright straw color. Fresh melon and tangerine aromas are brightened by notes of quinine and chalky minerals. Light-bodied, focused honeydew and citrus fruit flavors show good concentration and a hint of saltiness. Finishes tangy and long, with a refreshingly bitter quality and a touch of fresh orange."
