Winemaker's Notes

The 2008 Brandal has a pale yellow color with green hues. It gives off a varied and intense aroma of citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit), combined with sweeter notes of peach and white flowers in the end. Nice acidity in the mouth with flourishes of citrus and delicate, bitter balsamic hints.

Critical Acclaim

"Adegas d’Altamira's 2008 Albarino Brandal is medium straw-colored with aromas of mineral, lemon meringue, and spring flowers. With good grip, savory flavors, and excellent balance, it will drink well over the next 3 years."
