Silvery emerald straw color. Aromas of key lime custard, grapefruit zest, hint of gooseberry, and pressed flowers with a satiny, vibrant, dryish light body and an effortless, interesting, medium-length finish. A juicy albarino that will be delightful with shellfish; butter poached scallops will shine with this wine.

Albarino

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
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.
