Denominacion de Origen: D.O. Rias Baixas
Location: Finca Iglesario – 1970 – Meaño Finca Playa – 1978 - Cambados
Varietal: 100% Albariño
Viticulture: Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Practicing organic pergola trained vines, cultivated completely by hand.
Soils: Acidic sandy alluvial soils that are the result of the decomposition of the granite mother rock.
Climate: Atlantic climate. Very humid for the majority of the year with warm summers. Influenced by the gulf stream.
Winemaking: Hand-harvested and stored in small baskets. The grapes are sorted at the winery and pressed after a 12-hour cold soak, which helps prevent oxidation of the must and allows us to reduce the amount of SO2 used in winemaking. Destemmed and whole cluster pressing in a pneumatic press. Fermented in 500L & 600L puncheons and demi-muids (new, second, third, and fourth use).
Aging: Aged on the lees for twelve months with biweekly battonage.
Comments: La Caña Navia recovers the traditional methods of elaborating Albariño, before the incorporation of stainless steel tanks, when the wines were fermented and aged in large chestnut wood barrels on the lees. These were the wines that Jorge Ordóñez first discovered in Rias Baixas when he became the first person to export this variety.
Ratings & Reviews92 Points - James Suckling:
"A generous Albariño with notes of baked apples, apricots, buttered corn and lemon curd. Medium- to full-bodied, creamy and ripe yet with tangy acidity to wake you up. Drink now." (Apr 2022)
