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.

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

Can’t go wrong with a Spanish wine! Light, complements any chess!

Soft, light, pleasant. But not like water or grape juice.

Pale yellow with a tinge of green; light fresh and easy drinking; fruity nose, lift minerals, some acidity but not too much. Was great with lobster salad and corn.
