Review date: October 14, 2015

Wine Review: This light straw colored Albarino from Rias Baixas is heavier than most. It opens with a fragrant mild Anjou pear and faint pineapple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tart yellow grapefruit with notes of green apple and lime. I also picked up a bit of pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite some time. This Albarino is a richer style than most. I would pair it with an oily fish like tuna. So grill up a tuna steak and enjoy. Ken

Winemaker Notes: Attractive straw color with hints of green in the rim. Clean and brilliant. A very expressive and harmonious nose. Fine notes of white fruit (green apples, pear) and lemony aromas. Hints of herbs (basil) and flower blossom base notes. Surprising aromatic intensity. Clean and textured. Seductive exotic palate of pineapple and mango intermingled with refreshing citrus flavors amplified by minerally accents. Silky but yet full bodied, with long lingering finish. Round and very tasty.

Organic status: not organic
