Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of horse blanket, mossy, grassy earth, papaya kefir, and hard cheese rind with a supple, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, captivating, medium-length finish that presents overtones of tangerine, mango, wheatgrass, and resin with no oak flavor. A juicy, lightly rustic, earthy Albarino for cheese and the table.

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.
