Appearance: A bright greenish yellow colour with golden highlights.

Nose: A uniquely fruity aroma where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting hints of ripe apples, apricots, and peach aromas.

Palate: In the mouth, it is rich, mellow and well-balanced. The aftertaste is fully rounded and off dry on the palate with juicy fruit flavours, clean acidity and a long, mineral-dominated finish.

Serving Suggestion: Seafood, shellfish, poultry, rice, mild cheese.

Wine Advocate

A custom cuvee made for Eric Solomon from this large producer, this 2011 Albarino reveals loads of tropical fruit, white peach, honeysuckle and apricot notes along with medium body and a fresh, lively style. The crisp acid and abundant fruit make this a hedonistic, crowd-pleasing, dry white to drink over the next 1-2 years.

Score: 89. —Robert Parker, June 2012.
