Straw yellow with stone fruits, citrus and slight floral notes. On the palate apple and apricot flavors with vivid acidity, good balance, not overly complex. Medium finish ending with an herb and mineral character. Refreshing. Tasting Sample.

This pale yellow wine has an interesting nose full of lemon, peaches and a lanolin note. A bit of earth peeks out amid the smell of white flowers. The mouth is rather full, yet the acidity is fresh and zingy. Lemony minerals dominate the palate and leave me craving a calamari and scungilli salad.

Zippy nose. Somewhat disjointed on the palate. Citrus and saline.

Solid balanced acidity and good mouth feel. Delicate dry straw on nose and palate. Moderately short finish. Very nice food wine.

Classic fresh albariño from D.O. Rías Baixas! Peach and green apple, fresh and full of acidity...

Not one of the better examples I've had. A little simple with high acidity and some phenolic bitterness.

Pleasant enough, and super mineral. Serve well-chilled.

Lemon, tangerine, peach and a reductive sulfur component in the nose. Fairly round and soft attack of light apricot and peach, decent acidity. Still not my style. I like a taut citrusy Albariño.
