Bodegas La Cana Albariño 2020
La Caña is a wine that Jorge Ordóñez and his winemaking team craft to demonstrate the potential that Albariño shows as a high quality, serious varietal. As Jorge was the first person to export this variety, he has a tremendous passion and appreciation for Albariño, and he decries the use of Albariño to make simplistic, mass-produced, and commerical wines.. La Caña demonstrates the complexity, intensity, and longevity Albariño can achieve when sourced from old vineyards and using serious winemaking practices.
Light, vivid yellow. Fresh, mineral-tinged pear, nectarine, melon and floral scents are complemented by hints of honey, lemon curd and chamomile. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering energetic orchard and citrus fruit flavors that tighten up and turn spicier through the back half. Finishes very long and nervy, with repeating florality and a spicy jolt of candied ginger.
