Straw green color. Aromas and flavors of roasted limes and nuts with a silky, vibrant, dryish medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long finish with notes of green apple, lemon, and reduced lime. A bright and satisfying albariño with classic flavor and style.

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.
