Review date: June 22, 2015

Wine Review: This yellow colored Albarino from Rias Baixas is very good. It opens with a wet stone and cantaloupe like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little lush. The flavor profile is a mineral infused apple and pear blend with a hint of ginger and dash of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Albarino would pair well with baked ham with pineapple. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fleshy and dry, offering concentrated bitter pear skin and honeydew flavors and a touch of green tea. Finishes smooth and very long, with building spiciness and a late kick of dusty minerality. This wine went through a partial malolactic fermentation and aged for five months on its lees.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:

Are all wines meant to be aged? No. In fact, perhaps 90% of today's wines are vinified for consumption within 2 years of the vintage.
