Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Albarino from Rias Baixas opens with a mild lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused quinine with hints of Anjou pear and lime. The finish is dry, clean, and refreshing. This wine is very seafood friendly. It paired perfectly with my grilled Halibut. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Straw yellow with greenish hues, the Licia Albarino has strong varietal characteristics with hints of grapefruit, candied fruit, quince jelly, notes of fresh herbs, green apples, and minerals. It is full-bodied and well-balanced, highlighting the aromas of citrus and green apple, with a long and persistent finish. This wine pairs deliciously with grilled fish or any kind of seafood Asian cuisines, rice dishes, salads and grilled vegetables.
