This wine is golden in the glass and smells of apricots and flowers. The citrus comes across as a mix of lemon and tangerine. On the palate, it's one of the more sippable Albariños I've tasted from the Rias Baixas region. The acidity is fresh but doesn't rip off one’s tongue. Flavors of Granny Smith apples and Meyer lemons come forward, along with some other fruits that may have been named after people. It's an earthy drink that lasts a while on the finish.

Lemon, lime, nectarine, canned fruit, flowers, slate. Classic, inexpensive and decent Albariño. As I usually say, like a good, inexpensive white burg.

Medium intensity golden yellow. A bit timid on the nose; subtle saline solution and gosenberry aromas, really very pleasant. Good presence upon entrance that increments in power and intensity along its passage. Explodes on the third quarter with bright acidity and intense grip; all in a medium body. Flavors of green olives, and spearmint. Great minerality, with evident sea shell flavors. Excelent finish that lasts at least 8 seconds. Fantastic ability to take on foods. 89 pts. Incredible QPR!

Fresh lemon, luscious apple, yellow to white peach, straw, grassy and spicy, highly acidic with phenolic bitterness. Short finish.

Entry Level for Rias Baixas with a nice slate minerality and tropical fruit, worth a blind tasting!

Balanced minerality, softly floral nose, a bit briney.

Decent acid, floral, minerality and some slight pepper. Needed to be colder but totally can dig it for $9.99
