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"

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Fefiñanes ranks among the best and most consistent makers of Albariño in Rías Baixas, so no surprise that this comes across clean on the nose, with lively notes of white fruits and buttercup. A plump but vibrant palate is still in peak condition, while this tastes of nectarine, apple, honeydew and lime. Drink through 2019."

vinous logo"Pale yellow. Mineral-laced orchard and citrus fruit scents are complemented by a sexy floral nuance. Offers bitter pear skin and tangerine flavors that are complicated by an intense floral quality that emerges on the back half. Shows excellent focus and energy on a long, taut finish that features notes of salty minerals and honeysuckle. - Josh Raynolds"

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"

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."
