2019 CAMBADOS URBAN DESCONCIERTO ALBARIÑO
We’ve had an upsurge in demand for unique white varieties, and once you start tasting them, it’s easy to see why. One of my favorites is Desconcierto Albarino, which scored 96 points last year, and the new vintage is even better. Albariño is a Spanish varietal that some believe originated from a clone of Riesling. The two grapes share many of the same qualities and characteristics, and Desconcierto’s is beautifully rich and loaded with brightly focused fruit, intriguing spice, and classic saline character that’s simply irresistible.
Albarino grows best in areas with a strong maritime influence, which helps the grapes maintain a lively acidity. Desconcierto’s Vineyard is close to the Arousa Estuary’s shores, and the sea’s impact stands out in this classic Atlantic influenced wine.
Desconcierto utilizes partial Malolactic fermentation in their winemaking, which a technical method now widely used that gives the wine a rounder mouthfeel. There are less than 350 cases of this wine produced, and trust me when I tell you that you’ll wish you had ordered a lot more once you taste it.
