La Caña Albariño


Bodegas La Caña is located in the Valley of Salnés, Rías Baixas’ first sub-appellation, and the most maritime and northwestern sub-zone of Rias Baixas. The Valley of Salnés is Albariño’s original area of cultivation, and as a result, has the oldest clones and most authentic flavors of any region. The resulting profile of the wine is dominated by a saline, maritime quality that is balanced by rich flavors of ripe citrus. The saltiness is the result of the vineyards’ proximity to the ocean. The vineyards are planted on granite pergolas in the traditional method, which increases air drainage, helping the grapes stay healthy in this humid region. As with all of Grupo Jorge Ordóñez’s vineyards, the vineyards are dry farmed and cared for without the use of pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides, in the most traditional ways possible.
