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.
Light & Crisp
Good for the price as a summer medium body wine with a light sparkler with or without food. Great value if you the bobly tatste in your mouth.
Light & Crisp
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.
Fruity & Smooth
Charcuterie, Roast Fowl, Shellfish
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.
