Abarino Masterclass: The Wines of Rias Baixas
RIAS BAIXAS: THE HEARTLAND OF ALBARINO
D.O. Rias Baixas is widely acknowledged as the heartland of Spain’s most fashionable white grape variety, Albariño. Nestled up in the remote north west corner of Spain by the side of the Atlantic Ocean, Rias Baixas is famous for its lush green landscape, steep terraced vineyards and granite ‘pergolas’, not to mention the cornucopia of fresh fish hauled daily out of the ocean just a stone’s throw away!
This is an area which is a far cry from the Spain of popular imagination, and as such remains a relatively undiscovered region to all but a few “in the know”. Yet the wine emanating from this delightful corner of Spain is certainly gaining recognition worldwide for its refreshing peach, elderflower, citrus and tropical fruit aromas and silken palate.
