Product Description
Details

The prestigious Jorge Ordóñez founded Bodegas La Caña in 2003 with the aim of creating a Spanish white wine of great quality. More than ten years later, and with the aid of New Zelander oenologist Natalie Christensen, he has undoubtedly fulfilled his goal.

A varietal Albariño from the DO Rías Baixas, Albariño La Caña is made from grapes coming from a selection of 12 of the 38 little plots planted before 1990 in the Salnés valley. The grapes come from low-yielding vines, an all of the vinification process is carried out following traditional techniques.

Manually harvested, 25% of the Albariño grapes were fermented in 500 and 600-litre French oak barrels, while the rest completed the process in stainless steel tanks. Then it was aged for 8 months on its lees. After that, Albariño La Caña 2019 was blended and aged for a further months.

This varietal white wine from Rías Baixas has consistently received accolades and high scores by some of the world's top wine critics.

Appearance

The white wine Abariño La Caña has a bright, straw-yellow colour with golden tinges.

Nose

This varietal Albariño exhibits some elegant notes of white fruit and yellow fruit, along with white flowers, some remembrances of citrus rind, and overtones of herbs and wet earth.

Palate

Exquisitely crafted, this wine of Bodega La Cana has a substantial volume that fills the mouth, though at the same time it is light, fresh and dry. Flavours of citrus, balsam and aromatic herbs over a mineral background enlivened by a salty touch. This Albariño of Jorge Ordóñez has a very good acidity and a long, slightly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

Once again, Jorge Ordóñez has hit the mark. Albariño La Caña 2019 will pair well with seafood and fish recipes.
