Winemaker Notes

Bright straw color. In nose freshly fruits as dried apricot, candied pears, ripe fruit and notes of vanilla and licorice coming from the barrel. In mouth, light and very balsamic.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
Green-tinged yellow. Honeydew melon, white peach and pear on the highly perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering an array of concentrated yet lively orchard and pit fruit flavors along with suggestions of gingery spices and toasty lees. Shows superb energy and delineation on the mineral-driven finish, which features a suave floral quality and hint of smokiness. (Aged for a year on its lees in 500- and 600-liter French oak barrels.)
JS 93
James Suckling

A remarkable, maturing albarino. Plenty of smoky-yeast character and a surprising freshness on the nose. Serious concentration with plenty of structure and a really long, mineral finish.

The 2015 La Caña Navia is 100% Albariño aged 12 months sur lie in French oak puncheons and demi-muids. It's more deep, exotic and complex, with terrific notes of lychee, lime, and tart pineapple. Medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, fresh and lively, it has building richness on the palate, notable purity, and a great finish. It's another beautiful Albariño that can be drunk anytime over the coming 2-3 years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator

This rich white delivers ripe flavors of honeydew and pear, with accents of spice, ginger and vanilla. Lively acidity keeps the opulent texture focused. A bold, distinctive style.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Navia is powerful and still shows the imprint of the oak used in the fermentation and élevage with lees. The year delivered powerful wines, and this is a good example. However, to me, the oak is too dominant and diminishes the marine and saline character the zone is famous for, and the finish is especially spicy and a bit astringent. It feels a bit rough, and I'd have some difficulties drinking such wine, which comes through as smoky and a little ashy.

La Cana Winery Video

Jorge Ordóñez was the first person to introduce Albariño to the United States in 1991. Told he would never sell more than 100 cases of Albariño in New York City, he persevered, and now owns a winery in the Valle of Salnés, the best appellation of D.O. Rias Baixas.

When Jorge first traveled to Rías Baixas, the D.O. did not officially exist. What he found was a rich culture of family viticulture and winemaking. Most families had small plots of Albariño planted on pergolas built with posts taken from the mother rock – granite. Most of this Albariño was fermented and aged on the lees in large chestnut foudres.

Named for the straw-like cañas (reeds or canes) that line the shores of the Atlantic inlets that carve into the granite coast of Galicia, the winery’s philosophy is to produce a traditional, authentic, and serious Albariño, in the style of the artisan wines that Ordóñez discovered when he first arrived in the appellation in 1991.

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.

Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruity characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity and an increase in plantings over the last couple of decades. Thick skins allow it to withstand the humid conditions of its homeland, Rías Baixas, Spain, free of malady, and produce a weighty but fresh white. Somm Secret—Albariño claims dual citizenship in Spain and Portugal. Under the name Alvarinho, it thrives in Portugal’s northwestern Vinho Verde region, which predictably, borders part of Spain’s Rías Baixas.
