Appearance: Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow colour, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling.Aroma: Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of damp, dewy fresh herbs with a perfume of semi-ripe apples.Palate: A fine sparkling sensation on the palate, with a complexity of tastes denoting the freshness of vegetation in the valley and the essence of the variety. Persistent, full-bodied and tasty … a classic

This is from a famous bodega that was one of the first to import their Albarino to the United States. Albarino is now one of the hot, fashionable, light-bodied, dry whites, somewhat of a Spanish version of a light Condrieu from France’s Northern Rhône Valley. This well-made Albarino is dry, quite crisp, with notes of honeysuckle, apricots and peaches in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style. Drink it over the next year, as most of its appeal is in its compelling fragrance.
