A white wine you don’t hear that much about is Albarino which is a shame because it is a great wine, especially with food. It comes from Spain and is typically a bit lower in alcohol and quite dry. This is another one I got from my local wine club 2009 Pazo Senorans Albarino. I keep waiting for those complimentary bottles to start rolling in ;).
The smell is delightfully complex reminding me of dried apricot, papaya, minerals, and something else that I will have to call coconut. On the palate its feel reminds me of a viogner bringing lemon, some Sauvignon Blanc like grass and minerals and a finish that reminds me of smarties. Really quite a bang for the buck and a great match for my market dinner. I think I will need to get more for summer!
