2017 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Limpid straw-yellow. Vibrant, mineral-accented apple, lemon zest and jasmine scents are complemented by a deeper suggestion of white peach. Racy and sharply focused on the palate, showing energetic lift and cut to its fresh Meyer lemon and pear flavors. The mineral quality comes back strong on a penetrating, clinging finish that leaves a sexy floral note behind.. - Josh Raynolds"

2017 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño - 93 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"This is the flagship of Palacio de Fefiñanes, first produced in 1928. The grapes are from Cambados, and the wine spends six months in stainless-steel tanks until it’s bottled. A classic albariño from Rías Baixas, this is a lovely mix of peach flavors, scents of flowers and herbs and a mineral background. It is soft, round, juicy and rich in its lime-scented acidity. For batter-fried calamari."

2017 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"One of the top whites in this report is the 2017 Albariño from Palacio de Fefinanes, which is 100% varietal and sees no oak, being brought up all in stainless steel. Vivid notes of lime, citrus, crushed rocks, and an almost Riesling-like petrol character all soar from the glass. Medium-bodied, seamless, and incredibly elegant on the palate, it has remarkable purity of fruit and flawless balance, and while it’s not as concentrated as the more expensive 1583 cuvée, I like the balance and purity here more. This is one to seek out, and it should keep for 2-4 years."

2017 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño - FOOD&WINE

foodwine logo"This smells like the sea in the very best sense: Oyster shells, lemon zest, just the slightest hint of flowers it the background, perhaps a bit of warm hay or grass: It’s a savory expression of the variety. On the palate, each sip is concentrated and nervy with acidity, showcasing a layered mid-palate that carries flavors of hard stone fruit and mineral, all of it lingering through the long, almost briny finish. Bring on the raw seafood! - Brian Freedman"

"Briny apple aromas come with a dusty note, while this is both juicy and full on the palate, with lime-like acidity. Flavors of lime, green melon, apple and sea salt are appealing. On the finish, this feels lively and acidic, with a note of green herbs. Drink now. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"

2019 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"The regular Albariño is one of the most reliable among the more available wines, and it tends to show well early on and also age nicely for a few years in bottle. The 2019 Albariño de Fefiñanes feels unusually expressive and ready, very approachable, with a harmonious nose but with none of that reductive character often found in the early bottled wines. It's floral, varietal, aromatic and clean, with a balanced palate combining volume with great freshness. I tend to like this wine two or three years after the harvest. - Luis Gutiérrez"
