2018 CAMBADOS URBAN DESCONCIERTO ALBARIÑO
How many Albariños have you tried that left you thinking about them several days later? I’ve only had one and it was with Desconcierto’s 96 Point 2018 Albariño which stood out for its profound complexity, fine details, overall balance and classic saline character. Albariño is a Spanish grape varietal that some believe originated from a clone of Riesling from the Alsace. The two grapes share many of the same qualities and characteristics. This varietal thrives in areas with strong maritime influence, which helps the grapes maintain a lively acidity and Desconcierto’s Vineyard is within close proximity to the shores of the Arousa Estuary. The sea’s impact stands out in this classic Atlantic influenced wine.
Some of the greatest examples of this varietal are from the town of Cambados, and the Desconcierto comes from a site where the soils are composed of fine granite particles and sand. The area has adequate rainfall, and the excellent drainage in this vineyard plays a role in the wines perfectly ripened fruit and underlying complexity. The site also utilizes a vine density of 600 vines per hectare, with an average age of over 25 years, all in an effort to produce the most profound example of the varietal. With a 96 point rating and at under thirty per bottle, you really should try this beauty…
