Yellow straw color. Inviting aromas of green tea, lychee, honeydew melon, and sweet cantaloupe and peach with a round, lively, fruity medium body and a sleek, complex, medium-long salted caramel and golden raisin finish with no oak. An enticing, bright, delectable Albarino from an unlikely appellation; this is one to seek out!

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.
