Pazo Pondal, Albariño 2016, Riaz Baixas, Spain
Tasting Note: If you haven’t tried albariño yet, start with this one which is filled with bright fruit and concentration.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of green apple, quince, pear and honeysuckle.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied albariño is medium in flavor intensity with bright-fruit flavors suggested on the nose completing with a lemon citrus-infused finish and hints of vanilla baking spice.
The wine is medium-plus in acidity with some midpalate heft and substance.
