in Rias Baixas are a patchwork of many, many tiny plots, often in
backyards. Moraima was started when the 11 friends and family members
that make up this tiny co-op decided they no longer wanted to sell their
wonderful, old vine fruit to larger co-ops in the area. They came
together and started a small winery to create these lovely wines. Salnes
is the coastal heart of Rias Baixas, and Moraima is one of only three
bodegas producing wines strictly from the slightly inland portion of the
area, Alto Salnes.
This comes over here in small quantities, but we loved the classic Albarino brightness and focus. Very tasty addition to the shelves.
