Wine Review: This white gold colored Albarino opens with a wet stone and Bosc pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced Bosc pear with notes of green apple and touch of clementine. I also detected a dash of white pepper and dollop of honey. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with shellfish. I would pair it with a seafood casserole. Enjoy - Ken
