Winemaker Notes

A fine white wine, with notes of yellow and some flashes of golden-green. Prominent features of the bouquet are green apple, banana, kiwi and melon. On the palate, the wine has soft and agreeable acid, giving way to a melange of ripe fruits, peaches, apricot and kiwi. Lees maceration has created a body and structure with great personality. This aromatically-complex Albarino has a long finish with a touch of bittnerness -- a classic characteristic of the varietal.

Ideal with fish and shellfish. But, as a wine with great aromatic structure and good acidity, it is also an excellent wine just to share with friends.

Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of fresh-cut grass, wet stone and apple are mild on the nose. A round palate with zesty acidity is in full health, while flavors of apple, melon and pineapple last on the finish.

Vionta, Spain
The estate of Vionta is in Vilanova de Arousa in the Salnés Valley, the northern most subzone of Rías Baixas. It is also the coolest growing region in the Rías Baixas. The estate, sometimes known as Granja la Fontana, has one of the largest Albariño vineyards in Spain – about 80 acres.

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.
