Bodegas Fillaboa.

One of Spain's finest whites. Aromas of apricot and honey with and scintillating acidity and mouth watering flavours of citrus fruit and crisp apples. Thoroughly refreshing and a great food wine.

Masaveu Herrero

Bodegas Fillaboa is owned by the Masaveu family, who trace their winemaking history back to the 14th century, almost the beginning of Spain’s wine tradition. Since the founding of the D.O. Rías Baixas in 1988, Fillaboa, meaning “the good daughter” in Gallego, has produced some of the rarest and highest quality Albariño in the region. Albariño, known as the “White Rhine,” because of its similarity to Riesling, is an indigenous grape varietal to Spain and quite a recent discovery.

 

In the early nineties, Hugh Johnson described it as 'perhaps Spain's most exciting new kind of wine', and it now has a dedicated following due to its unique and complex flavours and texture. Fillaboa is recognised as a highly prestigious identifying mark of Galicia, and it is a delicate and complex combination of the purest craftsmanship and careful use of technology that has placed them at the top of the range in the winemaking world. Rias Baixas enjoys an Atlantic climate, with mild temperatures and heavy rains, and for this reason is known as the 'Green Spain'.

 

Fillaboa is one of only a few producers in this area making wine exclusively from grapes grown on their own estate, leading Tomas Clancy of the Sunday Business Post to describe it, rather intriguingly, as a 'handcrafted, wickedly piquant wine'.
