Superb wine – one of the best Rías Baixas we have tasted. Bright apricot fruit on the nose and palate – really zesty, dry and racy mouth feel. There is real weight of fruit and texture here, yet also delicacy and vitality. Very satisfying and moreish.”

Grown on decomposed granite soils the Albariño is cool fermented with no oak and aged on its lees for 4 months prior to bottling.

Producer

Quinta de Couselo has a great history and monastic heritage; built in 1163 in O Rosal, monks began producing wine in the valley as early as the 12th century. Today the farm has 6 hectares of vineyards planted over mainly to Albariño but also other local varieties including Caiño Blanco, Loureiro, and Treixadura. The winemaker is Jose Manuel Martínez Juste.

Food Match

Classic partner to white meats, such as pork and chicken, especially if done with a citric sauce or glaze. Very good with pan fried vegetables and cous-cous, with toasted pine nuts and roasted lemons.

    Okay, but not what I want from an Albarino. Prefer the more aromatic and elegant style. This looked and tasted more like a Chardonnay with its yellow hue and robust character. I didn’t enjoy this wine, maybe just not to my taste?
