La Fillaboa 1898

DO Rías Baixas, 100% albariño

We have achieved a true tribute to 1898, the year in which Albariño wines from this place crossed the ocean on a sailboat heading to Cuba.

The jewel of the crown at Fillaboa boasts the freshness of a young albariño wine and the complexity and elegance of a fine white wine. La Fillaboa 1898 fills us with pride and sends shivers down our spine by simply remembering the last sip we took of this wine. This is no wonder seeing as this wine is made exclusively with the best wines from the eight plots on the Fillaboa estate, a terroir with a sandy and rocky texture, due to its proximity to the Miño River, awarding it good drainage, perfect for keeping our vines in optimum condition 365 days a year.

One day we awoke with the idea to see how our albariño wine would behave over time. And so, we made the decision with the 2010 vintage, one of the most balanced and best vintages in the history of Fillaboa, to leave this albariño wine on fine lees for a minimum of 6 years aging. The result was amazing, leaving us in awe.

This white wine stuns at first sight: it is a clean and bright straw-yellow colour with golden glints and a unique and delicate tone. When we stop to contemplate its aromas, we discover a toasty aroma with a candied fruity background, reminiscent of baked apples and bakery products. La Fillaboa 1898 is a smooth wine, with very well integrated acidity, volume and long persistence. It is ideal to pair with fish dishes, poultry, Japanese and Oriental food.

This DO Rías Baixas wine has won several prizes, to mention a few; Best White Wine in Spain 2020 from the Spanish Association of Wine Journalists and Writers (AEPEV). La Fillaboa 1898 has also achieved high points in competitions such as Decanter 2019, Best in Show with 97 points, also 97 points in Guía Peñín 2020, 96 points in the Guía Gourmets 2021 and 95 points in the Special Report on Rías Baixas 2022 by Tim Atkin.
