Viticulture: La Val Albariño is the fruit of Bodegas La Val's devotion to excellence, with grapes sourced exclusively from their vineyards. Spanning over "Taboexa" and "Arantei," these vineyards are characterized by sandy, granitic, and clay-pebbled soils, contributing to the wine's freshness, mineral complexity, and fruity nuances.

Winemaking: The harvest commences mid-September, with grapes handpicked and carefully sorted. Embracing a traditional yet innovative approach, 70% of the grapes undergo a 6-hour maceration at a controlled temperature before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. This meticulous process and aging on lees in stainless steel vats ensure a wine of remarkable freshness and complexity.

Tasting Notes:

  • Visual: Intense, clean, straw-yellow with bright green tones.
  • Aroma: Fresh herbs and laurel, complemented by floral and lemon notes, alongside white stone fruits.
  • Palate: Fresh and rich with citrus undertones, culminating in a long, satisfying finish.

Sommelier Recommendations: The 2022 La Val Albariño is a versatile companion to various dishes. Its perfect balance of acidity and fruit makes it an ideal match for seafood, fish, fresh cheese, foie-gras, chicken, rice dishes, and pasta. Enjoy this exemplary Albariño at its optimal serving temperature of 12°C.

Aging Potential: While designed to be enjoyed young to capture its vibrant freshness, this Albariño gracefully ages, revealing more profound layers of complexity over the next four years.

Legacy and Commitment: Founded in 1985 by José Limeres Guille, La Val has been a cornerstone in promoting the Rías Baixas Denomination of Origin. Under the stewardship of new owners since 2010, the winery continues to champion high-quality, safety-certified winemaking, blending traditional methods with the latest technological advancements to produce Albariño of the highest standard.

Embrace the 2022 La Val Albariño as more than a wine; it's a journey through the heart of Rías Baixas, offering a taste of the region's soul and the dedication of its people.
