Product:

Attis, Xión, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2011

Producer:

Ferran Centelles

Tasting: Albariño

Quite light in aromas. Well made but lacking concentration and length.

John Radford

Tasting: Albariño

Pale straw. Some dark, smoky fruit with hints of ‘gooseberry bush’. Very clean, crisp and fresh, but the fruit is a little ‘dark’ and seems to be ‘hiding’ behind the acidity. Needs another six months in bottle.

Sarah Jane Evans MW

Tasting: Albariño

Subtle, creamy, lightly peachy. Punch of freshness leads the palate, and dominates the wine. Lacks the fruit to soften.
