The Adega Valmiñor winery presents the new vintage of Albariño Valmiñor.
This interesting Spanish white wine is produced from 20 to 40-year-old Albariño vineyards planted on hills with rocky soils.
Harvested at dusk, the grapes were selected in the vineyard, brought to the cellar, destemmed and cold-soaked for 6 hours.
Gently crushed, the wine must was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.
Stabilized and filtered, this white wine from Rías Baixas was bottled and smoothed for 30 days in the cellar before its commercial release.
Drink Albariño Valmiñor 2017 until 2020.
The wine Albariño Valmiñor de O'Rosal has a bright, pale yellow colour with some steely tinges.
Characterful and precise, this Albariño from Rías Baixas suggests aromas of yellow and bone fruit, spices and citrus over a herbal background.
Fresh and voluminous, this white wine by Adega Valmiñor is full of yummy fruit, with a distinctive note of cantaloupe melon. Excellent acidity, dim mineral undertones and a long, slightly bitter finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Elegant and complex, Albariño Valmiñor 2017 from Rías Baixas will pair well with hearty fish dishes and white meat.

Staple Albariño, a fabulous value indeed. Start here, and then move on to more complex specimens.
One of the entry-level wines of a most interesting winery. Bitter, salty, very fresh. The other wines are even better and worth the price.
