Condes de Albarei, Albariño 2014, Rías Baixas, Spain
Tasting Note: A wine that would work especially well as a first introduction to the Albariño grape varietal.
Lemon to golden in color with a nose of apricot, peach, green pear and lime citrus.
On the attack you feel medium-plus acidity and tartness with green fruit character showing mid-to-back palate.
The Spanish white completes with a chalky, lime finish.
