Description
 
Bodegas La Caña was founded by Jorge Ordoñez in 2008 with his aim to produce a classic style of Albariño. Jorge had long been enamoured with the exotic white wines of northern Spain and was one of the first to introduce wines like Albariño, Txakoli and Godello to the North American market. After an already great start, Jorge hired New Zealand winemaker Natalie Christensen in 2013, to oversee the production of La Caña. Natalie started her career at Saint Clair Family Estate in Marlborough and her experience with cool-climate white grapes, especially Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling, added tremendous value to the production of a classic and austere style of Rias Baixas Albariño.

Tasting different vintages of the same wine side by side lets you see the vintage character or the profile change of the wine, if there has been any. In this case, tasting the 2016 Navia next to the 2015 and 2017 revealed how the oak regime must have changed in 2017, as 2016 and 2015 showed more similarities; both vintages felt spicy, smoky and ashy, when the oak was quite dominant, and the wines also felt a bit wider, especially in 2016, when the wine came through a little flat in the mid-palate and had abundant oak-related reminiscences in the finish. 10,200 bottles produced. It was bottled after 12 months of aging on the fine lees in the oak fermentation vessel, with bâtonnage to oxygenate the lees. Wine Advocate 90
