The wine Fillaboa is a Spanish white wine entirely crafted from Albariño, Spain's most important white variety.
The grapes come from the 70 hectares of vineyards owned by the Bodegas Fillaboa winery on the banks of the Miño river.
This young white wine from Rías Baixas was fermented in stainless steel tanks for over a period of 20 days and then aged on its lees for a short time.
Finally, Fillaboa 2017 was filtered and cold-stabilized before its bottling.
Drink this Albariño from Galicia until 2021.
The wine Fillaboa has a clear, very bright yellow-green colour with some steely glints.
This Albariño from Rías Baixas smells of pears, golden apples, pineapple, fennel, aniseed and freshly cut grass.
Light and fresh, this white wine by Bodegas Fillaboa has a delicately unctuous touch and a crisp, refreshing acidity. Notes of bitter almonds, white fruit, a dash of honey and remembrances of bitter herbs. Medium, slightly bitter finish.
|Our personal opinion||
The wine Fillaboa 2017 will improve in the bottle for some time. However, it is drinking very well right now.
