@Mike R Another wine that was consumed by the three of us & brought by Mike R himself. Apricot, pear, lemon zest, slate. Flawless balance. Absolutely delicious at any price.

Louro Valdeorras Godello 2018

I find this (Godello grape) 3rd wine of Rafael Palacios fabulous, and besides very much value for money! The 2nd As Sortes also fantastic, but the 1st Sorte o Soro not worth the money and not really better than As Sortes! — 21 days ago

Rías Baixas Albariño Atlantico 2018

I am a big fan of albariños. I have surrendered to this amazing variety years ago. Galicia has master every single and possible angle of this refreshing, complex, fruity, elegant, sophisticated, delicate, delicatessen from the North ... And even after all this years, now and then, I run into something that blow my mind.
The main characteristics are there: fresh, light to medium, fruity ( peach, pomegranate, apricot ) with a generous mouthful of saline, floral notes but suddenly goes intro this long mineral citrusy party that I quite frankly didn’t expect ! ... What can I say : Superb !... Next level... Holly%^%! ... Pairs to perfection with seafood but will complement ANY bird, rice, veal or even lamb or just enjoy by itself ! Always welcome surprises when they are masterfully done and this is the case ... 👏🏻👏🏻
