Winemaker Notes

Golden yellow with green highlights, Trico displays a clean, bright and intense nose. The initial aromas include fresh green apples and citrus notes accompanying stone fruits such as ripe peach and apricot, as well as tropical pineapple and passion fruit. Delicate floral, herbaceous and balsamic notes complete a crisp and extensive aromatic experience. On the palate, this wine is flavorful and lush, with a nice acidity and finish.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Showing very good freshness from the year and incipient complexity for its age, the 2013 Nicolás was produced by pressing whole clusters and fermenting the juice with indigenous yeasts. The wine is bottled unoaked one year later and kept in bottle for a further year before it's released. There are notes of quince, bay leaf, white pepper and fennel. The palate revealed citrus acidity and clean and focused flavors, quite vertical with the austere texture provided by the granite soils. 5,000 bottles were filled in September 2014.

Trico is a local name in Rías Baixas that refers to the last, "unexpected" child in a family, one that is often much younger than its siblings. Trico is the last son of Jose Antonio Lopez, formerly of Lusco and much earlier of Morgadio. Jose Antonio Lopez is a pioneer in the region, one of the winemakers responsible for the resurgence of Albarino as a quality wine with a worldwide presence. Since their debut vintage, Trico has been a leader in quality Albarino wines. Trico is a wine that preserves the floral and fruity characteristics of the Albarino variety. It has great structure and voluptuousness in mouth, as well as a broader and longer palate. The goal is to preserve freshness and acidity, while gaining presence and intensity.

Rias Baixas

View all wine

Named after the rías, or estuarine inlets, that flow as far as 20 miles inland, Rías Baixas is an Atlantic coastal region with a cool and wet maritime climate. The entire region claims soil based on granite bedrock, but the inlets create five subregions of slightly different growing environments for its prized white grape, Albariño.

Val do Salnés on the west coast is said to be the birthplace of Albariño; it is the coolest and wettest of all of the regions. Having been named as the original subregion, today it has the most area under vine and largest number of wineries.

Ribeira do Ulla in the north and inland along the Ulla River is the newest to be included. It is actually the birthplace of the Padrón pepper!

Soutomaior is the smallest region and is tucked up in the hills at the end of the inlet called Ria de Vigo. Its soils are light and sandy over granite.

O Rosal and Condado do Tea are the farthest south in Rías Baixas and their vineyards actually cover the northern slopes of the Miño River, facing the Vinho Verde region in Portugal on its southern bank.

Albariño gives this region its fame and covers 90% of the area under vine. Caiño blanco, Treixadura and Loureira as well as occasionally Torrontés and Godello are permitted in small amounts in blends with Albariño. Red grapes are not very popular but Mencía, Espadeiro and Caiño Tinto are permitted and grown.

Albarino

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last couple of decades. This grape claims dual citizenship of both Spain (in the Rías Baixas region) and Portugal, where it is widely planted in the northwest and is known as Alvarinho. In recent years, plantings have increased throughout California.

In the Glass

Bursting with rich, ripe flavor, Albariño can show flavors of orange blossom, lime, pear, melon and white peach. It may also have notes of raw almond, freshly cut grass, jasmine or geranium. The best examples boast zingy acidity and often a briny, mineral quality. It is typically fermented in stainless steel to preserve purity of fruit, though oak-aged examples can provide a weighty yet refreshing alternative to Chardonnay with surprising potential for aging. Due to Albariño’s thick skins and large number of pips, it often shows a hint of attractive bitterness on the palate.

Perfect Pairings

Albariño loves seafood, and can be paired with a variety of marine delicacies. Its distinctive waxy texture and lemony acidity make it a perfect pairing with fresh sardines, oysters, octopus or squid.

Sommelier Secret

Albariño is considered an aromatic variety, and actually shares characteristic with Viognier, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Muscat. If you enjoy these elegantly perfumed whites, chances are you’ll love Albariño.
