Winemaker Notes

This pretty wine has lemon yellow with golden reflections, it is clear and bright. It has an intense nose, with hints of stone fruit and apple, with a clean minerality. On the palate it reveals a well-integrated acidity, giving it a harmonious complexity and freshness without edges, leaving a pleasant lingering finish.

Pair this wine alongside lighter meats, fish, and seafood sing with Albariño. Try it with ceviche, seafood risotto, grilled (or fried) fish tacos, oysters, mussels, and clams.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

Nine months of aging on the lees with bâttonage gives this wine an oxidative scent, but then the fruit comes on like a wave of yellow plum and waxy yellow apple flavor, pale and oceanic. This is selected from the fruit of 200 growers in the Salnès Valley.

JS 90
James Suckling

Jasmine, white pears, peaches, lemons and stones on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Juicy with some pineapple and lemon-squash notes to close. Drink now.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Bodegas Rectoral do Umia Albarino is alluring and pleasing on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of ripe fruits, hints of bananas, honey, and earthy notes. Pair it with linguine and clams in a light garlic broth. (Tasted: December 6, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
WS 89
Wine Spectator

A muscular white, with firm acidity buttressing a rich, thick texture. Shows pear, lime and chalky flavors that are reserved yet deep and balanced. Drink now.

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.
