Wine Review: Wow, this is an impressive Albarino! It is light yellow colored and comes in a unique and cool looking "Tower" like bottle. It opens with a fragrant grapefruit, lime and salt water like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and lush. The flavor profile is a delicious Anjou pear with wonderfully integrated minerality. I also detected a hint of green apple and touch of lime. The finish is dry and it drifts away nicely. This Albarino is very food friendly and versatile. I would pair it with a grilled swordfish steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pazo Baion is the most exclusive Albarino. An elegant and selected jewel. On the nose it is floral and citric with a silky and persistent taste. It is remarkable for its intense varietal perfume, with predominantly floral aromas (orange blossom and jasmine) and fruit with reminiscent of citrus and tropical notes. On the palate, it is silky and elegant, it displays a marked aromatic finesse without losing a young, fresh, mineral and lingering finish.

Organic status: not organic
