1583 is the birth date of the Viscount of Fefinanes, Gonzalo Sarmiento Valladares, builder of the Castle of Fefinanes, in Cambados. They wanted to pay tribute to their ancestor with this wine that managed to reach a perfect harmony between the fruitiness of the Albarino grape and the complexity brought by the oak aging.
"Fatter, fleshier, and more textured than the straight Albarino, the 2017 Albarino 1583 is another brilliant white from this estate that's well worth seeking out. Notes of green apples, spice, and crushed rocks all flow to a medium to full bodied white that has a dense, layered mid palate, terrific balance, and a great finish. This beauty is geared for the dinner table and, as with the base cuve, it should keep for 2 4 years easily. This cuve is 100% Albarino that spent four months in French and American oak followed by two months in stainless steel."
