I'm always on the lookout for albarino, and this is a fine example. The aromatics are not overly intense, but I really like the complexity, conjuring up various herbal and fruity nuances - keeps you going back for another sniff. Fresh and clean on the palate, a great accompaniment to seafood. And sensibly capped with a screwcap closure - what's not to like?

Nose: Lemony, white peach, lime zest, minerality Palate: It’s almost a honeyed peach, with a bit of pineapple; it’s a bit zesty and spritzy – like a yellow fruit salad with lime juice and zest sprinkled over it. As the palate progressed it was like a complete journey through an orchard, taking pit stops at pear and apple town (but not a red apple – a really good apple) towards the end.
