89 Points “BEST BUY” – Condes de Albarei Albariño 2014
Part of the Wine & Spirits 2017 Rías Baixas Countdown.
“With a clarity in its aromas and flavors, this albariño moves from apples and limes to herbs and spices. The acidity is potent enough to cut through a seafood gratin, carrying notes of melon and peach. A delightful albariño to drink now, this will only improve with time in bottle.
This is among the freshest of the 2014 albariños we tasted this year. It’s easy to drink, yet complex with flavors of stones and citrus fruit, both coming together to form a radiant, luminous white. Pair it with salmon tartare.”
