You may recognize Ruth Chavarri's name – she's the talented, fifth-generation winemaker behind some of our favorite Rioja reds. But Ruth's actually a bigger fan of refreshing whites – so when her family recently invested up in Rías Baixas (on Spain's northwest coast, it's the place for Albariño), she jumped at the opportunity.
She cool-fermented the grapes, a fancy winemaking process which locks in intense aromas (like the lovely floral and herbal notes you'll notice here). The wine also rested on its lees for nine months before bottling, producing more tropical aromas and flavors wrapped around a lovely texture.
Intensely crisp and aromatic (you may even detect a faint salty tang, a trademark of Albariño) – this is a perfect seafood white.
