Additional Information
Appearance

The white wine Albariño sobre lías Fefiñanes III Año 2016 has a clean, waxy colour with golden tinges.

Nose

Intense, subtle and elegant, this Albariño aged on lees carries some vivid aromas of white and tropical fruit, a note of citrus, and some honey nuances that evolve into lactic sensations, notions of fresh herbs, flowers, and some mineral undertones.

Palate

Nuanced, confident and extremely appealing, this white wine from the Fefiñanes winery has an intoxicating texture and a remarkable complexity. A note of lime and tropical fruit, a dash of flintstone, specks of white flowers, and a tip of aromatic herbs and fennel. Great, powerful acidity and a very long, slightly bitter finish. A remarkable Crianza white wine.

Our personal opinion

An age-worthy wine of impressive depth, Albariño de Fefiñanes 2016 is one of Spain's great whites.
