Javier Murúa’s wines have long been favourites with Averys customers – indeed, Conde de Cron Tinto is our bestselling wine. So when we heard he’d bought a winery in Galicia’s Rías Baixas region, the heartland of Albariño, our interest was immediately piqued.
Conde de Cron Albariño comes from Salnés Valley, the oldest and coolest sub-region of Rías Baixas
Ocean breezes help give the wines a mouth-watering maritime freshness, whilst granite soils add a distinct minerality
From a vintage widely considered to be superb throughout the Rías Baixas region
Tasting note:The 2017 is bursting with mineral-edged, zesty citrus fruit and white peach flavours. Rounded yet very fresh and elegant. It’s utterly delicious on its own but Galicia is renowned for having some of the best seafood in the world and it’s no coincidence that Albariño and seafood pair so well together.
