This is a fairly light, dry, and quite refreshing Albariño with a nice mix of zesty if not terribly pronounced fruit flavours, including pear, peach, mango, pineapple, and lemon, along with some streaky minerality that keeps the whole thing focused. The tartness ultimately gives way to a lingering bitterness on the finish, but the length is short and so the result isn't so much unpleasantness as a cleansed palette. While I don't usually assign specific foods to wine, this is ideal for shellfish, hardly surprising given its origins in northwestern Spain. Nicely done, if lacking punch overall.
Previous vintages have performed better. In a blind setting this wine wasn't too recognizable as a Albarino.
A bit flat on the palate, with none of that excitement and minerality from Rias Baixas. The aromas were subdued and subtle, the palate was more intense with some notes of lees and creamy peach.
