This wine is a riper style of Albariño. On the palate, it's gentle and peachy with some lingering mineral and rock notes that add complexity and exemplify classic Rías Baixas character. The finish shows peach, yellow apple, and even some tropical fruits. Drink soon or in the next few years.
Wine Advocate 88 points - The flowery-styled 2013 La Cana comes from Albarino vines planted before 1990. It differs from its sibling in that the wine is fermented in stainless steel as well as oak barrels, with the oak fermentation varying between 15% and 20%. This gives the wine a slightly creamier style with abundant notes of spring flowers, caramelized grapefruit, honeysuckle and white peaches. This pretty, light to medium-bodied, dry white should drink well for 12-18 months. (Nov 2014)
The vineyards were planted in 1966. All of the Albarino grapes are trained in the pergola system, allowing the fruit to remain high off the ground , which maximizes the health of the grapes and greatly reduces the need for fungicides. Approximately 70% to 80% of the wine is fermented in stainless steel; the remainder, along with its yeast lees, is fermented in large-format French oak barrels until bottling.
