Anadigna Albarino Sobre Lias D.O Rias Baixas
Bodegas de Galicia - Gold for 2014 vintage in 2015 and 2016
Just moved onto the 2017 vintage. A fine, elegant Albarino, full and round in the mouth with beautiful delicate flavours. Please note the free SO2 of 33mg/l was at bottling and will have reduced by now so this is a very healthy low sulphite wine.
This "Sobre Lias" Albarino is bigger and fuller than Carlos's white label Albarino, coming from the best grapes of the vineyard. Please note the free SO2 of 33mg/l was at bottling and will have reduced by now.
Ths winery name throws up some confusion as sometimes it is written as Nadigna but they sometimes prefix it with the letter "A" to become "Anadigna". It was named after Carlos's grandmother "Anadigna" but they used to call her Mama Nadigna so I'm sure either will do!
