My aim with Albariño is to show off its classic vibrant acidity and beautiful aromatics. This 2008 is refreshingly crisp and clean, and smells of violets, tangerine, and lime. It has tropical flavors of citrus and banana, and the subtle Albariño trademark salty characteristic. This wine has got to be the world's most compatible wine with shellfish! It is wonderful with simply prepared clams, shrimp, mussels, lobster, crab, oysters, and especially scallops.
