Bodegas Laxas Sensum Laxas (750ml)
Bodegas As Laxas is a historic estate in the Galicia region of northwestern Spain. It is located in the Rías Baixas (ree-ahs-buy-shuss) Denomination of Origin (DO) and has become Spain’s premium white wine producing region. The staring grape here is Albariño (al-ba-ree-nyo).
Bright straw yellow colour. Citrus and pit fruit aromas with some beeswax, chamomile, and tarragon. Tangerine and white peach flavours with some anise. Chalky minerality. Balanced. Soft finish.
“This sparkling Albariño holds its own, and given how little sparkling Albariño exists, that’s a back-handed compliment. Aromas of apple and smoky flint set up floral flavours of citrus fruits backed by a cured-meat note of Iberico ham. On the finish, this turns green and bitter, with citrus-skin notes taking charge.”-Wine Enthusiast
