Bodegas As Laxas is a family owned and operated winery located in the Condado do Tea subsection of the Rias Baixas region in northwest Spain near the Atlantic coast. The estate vineyards are terraced with a southern exposure overlooking the Mino River, which separates Spain from the northern border of Portugal. Bodegas As Laxas was one of the first bodegas in the region to be awarded the status of D.O. Rias Baixas. The bodega was founded in 1862 and operated continuously until the original bodega was destroyed in a fire in 1960. It was rebuilt soon afterwards and has been continuously updated and remains on the cutting edge of wine technology. Today, the U.S. leads the world in imports of Albarino wines with over 50% of the total Albarino exports from Spain to the U.S. The wine has stony lime aromas that are lightly floral and appealing. This feels smooth and round despite showing somewhat firm acidity. Nectarine and melon flavors and a lasting minerality and stone fruit character.
