2021 Now finished: ALBARIÑO, Bico da Ran, Fento Wines. Rias Baixas, Spain

Bin:  99

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%



Rias Baixas is in Galicia, the green and cool north-west of Spain just above Portugal (where, over the border they also grow plenty of ‘Alvarinho’).
This comes from Val do Salnés, the southern and sunniest part of the region, near the River Minho, where the wines have a little more breadth and richness than the norm.

Grape variety:

100% Albariño, fermented cool in steel tanks and bottled early to retain maximum freshness.


The winery and brand is part of Fento wines – who farm in very traditional style, the vines grown on pergolas, with no herbicides used beneath. Consultant winemaker is Eulogio Pomares, renowned for making some of the region’s top examples at Zárate.

Old Bridge rating:

Utterly delicious example of Spain’s most prestigious white grape. Some versions are so salty-dry that they only work well with seafood and sunny lunchtimes. This has enough ripeness to be much more versatile.
