2014 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albarino III Ano - 94 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Lurid yellow color. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of peach and pear nectar, melon and tangerine, along with a building floral overtone. Juicy and densely packed, displaying a deft interplay of power and delicacy to its orchard and pit fruit flavors. Picks up smoky lees and quinine nuances with air that carry through an impressively long finish that echoes the peach and floral notes. - Josh Raynolds"

2013 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albarino III Ano - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"The 2013 Albariño de Fefiñanes III Año, bottled in its third year and hence the name, had notes of hay and straw, floral aromas and clean fruit. It had very good intensity and balance, with the lees providing volume to balance the acidity of the year. It finishes with a very long aftertaste, lifted by the granite mineral sensation. 6,062 bottles were filled in February 2016. - Luis Gutiérrez"

2012 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albarino III Ano - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Light-gold. Intense mineral-accented aromas of pear skin, tangerine and honeysuckle, with hints of vanilla and ginger emerging slowly. Taut and sharply focused on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of smokiness. Mineral and pear qualities dominate the long, lively, subtly sweet finish. This wine was aged in used French and American oak barrels for five months. - Josh Raynolds"

2013 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albarino III Ano - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Brilliant yellow. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet displays Meyer lemon, pear, honey and chamomile scents, lifted by a smoky mineral topnote and a hint of ginger. Palate-staining, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit flavors show excellent focus and depth, and a subtle hint of iodine emerges slowly. Emphatically stony and floral on the long, focused finish, which leaves a suggestion of orange pith behind. - Josh Raynolds"

2012 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albarino III Ano - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"Much better was the 2012 Albariño de Fefiñanes III Año, a wine from a warm, ripe vintage. It aged in contact with the lees with bâttonage for almost three years, hence its name. The nose combines freshly cut grass, musky apple and some spices and smoky/leesy sensations. The palate is fuller than any of the 2013s tasted next to it, with ripe flavors of yellow fruit and good balance."

2011 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño III Anos - 93 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 93 pts"Light yellow-gold. Powerful pear and nectarine aromas are brightened by chalky minerals and deepened by hints of smoky lees and iodine. Supple orchard fruit and Meyer flavors stain the palate, picking up bitter citrus zest and quinine qualities with air. Turns firmer and more minerally as it opens in the glass, finishing with superb lift and smoky persistence. This wine was aged on its lees in stainless steel tanks for three years, hence the name."

2009 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albarino III Ano - 93 PTS - IWINE

I Wine Reiew"This 100% Albarino is a selection of the best fruit and the best tank. Medium dark straw in color, it reveals a spicy late harvest character with notes of apricot and honey. Lush and deep, it’s a dry wine with the rich flavors and unctuousness of a sweet one, finishing with incredible persistence and distinct mineral notes. Aged for three years on the lees in steel tanks, this 2009 vintage illustrate how Albariño’s flavors mature and and deepen with some bottle age. "
