Brilliant golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of baked apples, butter roasted nuts, and bark with a vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and a compelling, medium-long honeyed pears and clementines finish with fine, fruit tannins. A bright and refreshing Albarino with great varietal flavor, character and structure.

Albariño is a white grape grown in Portugal and Spain (Rias Baixas in north west Spain, near the border with Portugal, is a famous Albariño zone).

The wines are aromatic, aged only in steel and feature exotic aromatics of honeysuckle, peach, melon and orange blossom. Medium-bodied, the wines are dry or off-dry and have very good natural acidity. They are meant to be enjoyed young (within the first year or two after the vintage) and are ideal with shellfish (especially crayfish) and most seafood.
