Alcohol By Volume: 12.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

An attractive straw color, with hints of green in the rim. Clean and brilliant. The nose is very expressive and harmonious. Fine notes of white fruit (green apples, pear) and lemony aromas. Hints of herbs (basil) and flower blossom base notes. Surprising aromatic intensity. The palate is clean and textured. Seductive and exotic notes of pineapple and mango intermingle with refreshing citrus flavors, amplified by minerally accents. Silky, but full-bodied, with a long and lingering finish. Round and very tasty.

Paco & Lola make a divine duo with sushi, pastas, fish, rice dishes, white meats, seafood, fish and shellfish stews.

Critical Acclaim

"Peachy and stony, with warmth, ripeness and lovely, savoury greengage fruit on the mid palate which has a pristine feel. Final taste is of roasted lemons and herbs, with a stony, almost salty mineral note."

This is a nicely-priced Albarino and is surprisingly good. It seems that there isn't much of a price/quality relationship with Albarino as we've spent a lot for some bottles and not received much of a bump in quality. The Paco & Lola was offered at a very attractive price and is very palatable. A nice summer refresher.

Eye-opening surprise! Light gold color, medium body, leggy. The nose amazes; medium to large, Apricots and lime zest, perhaps a note of mango. The flavors are pretty big and mouth-filling with a nice finish (the slightest hint of desirable bitterness); there is ample fruit but also plenty of bright acidity to balance it. I gather that Albarino is a cousin of Riesling and the inheritance is clear but this is much bigger than a Kabinett and better balanced. It is a dry white but fruity and lively. I'm so pleased by this I'll be trying a few more of these Rias Baixas whites. A fine value.
