JM Sorrell

Everyone else took credit (of course) because it is so fabulous. Love the indigenous discovery!
Vince Truong
54:43
Curious whether anyone has had albarino aged 20 years or more and whether it was still drinking well
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
55:01
this is a great question.
James Greeley
55:07
I always get green apple notes too...
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
55:23
I had many examples of Albariño that have been aged for 20-30 years
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
55:30
they aged very gracefully
K Andrew Byers
55:49
I leave a week from Tuesday to walk my 8th Camino. The Camino Primitivo and then the Ingles.
Vince Truong
55:52
how much primary fruit was left at that point? Did it become Riesling like?
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
56:23
yes, it comes across as an aged Riesling.
Jeffrey McDowell
56:36
Buen Camino Andrew
Vince Truong

Some truly amazing Albarino from Uruguay
Sedale McCall
57:12
Interesting. Curious the profile of South American Albarino
Ryan Taylor
57:26
Albariño from land of Tannat, love it.
Victoria Aldwinckle
57:52
England too!!
Ronnie Valdivia
58:11
At least one vineyard growing Albarino in Michigan too
Alexandra Buga
58:47
There`s even Albarino in Moldova
Nika Shevela
58:47
Albariño is certainly making waves around the world! Victoria, do you know which English producer(s) work(s) with it?
Kerrie Douglass-Tippett
59:04
Very popular in Maryland
Victoria Aldwinckle
59:14
Chapel Down Winery, Kent.
Laura Noreña
59:18
Also México
James Greeley
59:27
Is that Sanxenxo?
Kristen Zeiser
59:30
You can add Rhode Island, as well! Being produced by Greenvale Vineyards.
Kaylee Laird
59:43
I’ve had one from Virginia as well.
JM Sorrell
01:01:20
Love it. We women need to be more and more involved. How very cool.
Nika Shevela
01:03:14
Thanks, Victoria!
Sue Murphy
01:07:54
How do you know which area a bottle of Albarino is from
Riccardo del Noce
01:08:25
Usually is written on the bottle… Like Terras Gauda O’ROsal
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
01:09:40
producers typically do not share this information on their label. best way to know is by checking the village shown on the back label under the "bottle by" info
Erik Segelbaum
01:11:51
@sue Murphy: for Rias Baixas, there are authorized DO's for each subzone. So if they are from that subzone it will be on the label. If not, it's likely not from any one zone but probably based on fruit in the zone where the winery is bottling
James Powers
01:20:40
Hah! Cos Pes for me, too. Incredible wine. (2019)
Vince Truong
01:22:40
Any thoughts on the granitic eggs used by Torre Penelas? Meaningful difference or gimicky?
James Powers
01:24:26
A lot of exported Albariños are deacidified, no? Maybe this is where we get the myth that the grape can't age. Of course there are more authentic ones available now, but in the 90s/00s?
Deborah Hansen
01:24:30
I always hold back a couple of bottles of my best albariños from every vintage so I can enjoy them later. They evolve stunningly well - provided they had plenty of acidity.
Cate Hatch
01:24:55
Given the acidity and affinity for lees contact, does anyone make a traditional method sparkling Albarino in Galicia??
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
01:25:06
@deborah you know!
James Powers
01:25:26
I can think of at least a couple sparklers!
JM Sorrell
01:25:42
Totally agree, Deborah!
Patrick Mata, Olé & Obrigado
01:26:05
yes, there are a few producers making Traditional method Sparkling wine. very small tiny productions at present
Sedale McCall
01:26:22
Oh that sounds interesting @cate/James/Patrick any producers you have in mind?
Nika Shevela
01:26:32
I've tried some fantastic sparkling Albariño!
Victoria Aldwinckle
01:26:58
This is making my mouth water, literally!
Valeria Tenison
01:27:20
With this humid climate what percentage of the region’s producers practice organic viticulture?
JM Sorrell
01:27:41
Wow, SPARKLING Albarino?! Reminds me of when I first discovered WHITE Priorat. Thought it was always a red.
James Greeley
01:27:57
merluza :)
Nika Shevela
01:27:58
Mar de Frades, Bodega Eidosela, among others
The Wine Consul-Ellen Lainez SWS
01:27:59
amazing and now starving
Nika Shevela
01:28:47
I am sure Patrick will share a few more with us :-)
Tusar Mukhopadhyay
01:29:35
Is biodynamic viticulture practiced for Albariño?
Nika Shevela
01:29:42
And James, sorry, missed your comment!
Melissa Jensen, Vintnerd
01:30:31
Have to go back to my day job. Thank you for this fascinating presentation!
James Powers
01:31:12
As Laxas!
Rick Fisher, Wine Scholar Guild
01:32:30
There are some nice traditional method Albariños produced, but very few make their way outside of Spain...for now!
Erik Segelbaum
01:32:41
@Cate and @JM In Rias Baixas, there is a DO for sparkling Albarino. It must be traditional method (no Charmat allowed). More and more producers are making sparkling Albarino. Martin Codax (though a coop) makes a lovely one.
Nika Shevela
01:33:27
Rick, do you think the Albariño sparkling category will grow in popularity?
Sedale McCall
01:33:40
Thanks Erik!
Rick Fisher, Wine Scholar Guild
01:33:52
Organic/biodynamic viticulture is not practiced much because of the invariability of the climate in the region. This is not to say that some aren't trying though...
Rick Fisher, Wine Scholar Guild
01:34:51
@Nika, I think it will take time for the category to grow because it is still not exported much. But things are certainly changing. I'm hopeful that we will see more on the market in the coming years.
Nika Shevela
01:35:27
Thank you!
Nika Shevela
01:36:09
