Straw yellow in color with some green tinges and a viscous texture. Complex ripe fruit aromas of golden apple complimented by a wide range of citrus and citrus zest dominate the nose, with subtle floral and spice aromas. An ample wine from start to finish, the aromatics play out in the mouth with fleshy and harmonious flavors and a persistent, balanced finish.
"The 2007 Albarino is a worthy successor to the 2006 which received 92 points in Issue 175. Sourced from the oldest vines in Rias Baixas and aged on the lies with batonnage, the wine is light gold-colored with aromas of lemon meringue and white peach. On the palate the wine has superb depth, layers of fruit, intense flavors, and a lengthy, pure finish. "
The Wine Advocate
"Light, bright gold. Deep, musky aromas of pear, peach skin, green papaya and lime pith. Concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity and overlain with dusty minerals. The citrus notes gain strength on the finish, which is nervy, focused and long. This wine's mix of energy and depth will make it very adaptable at the table."

This was my first sampling of Albarino and it surprised me by how delicious it is. Perfectly matches fish and shellfish dishes
