Pale yellow, excellent clarity. Floral, stone fruit, vanilla notes in nose. Soft, soft mouthfeel. Melon and mild peach skin in mouth, mineral finish, little skin astringency. Dry, almost crisp. Well crafted, great for sipping. Website notes lees contact.

Really enjoyed this. High-toned and explosive nose, white tea, orange blossom, ripe white peach, phenolic grip holds all that acid back, balanced

Surprise wine of the night. There's a subtle sweetness and creaminess that I wasn't expecting, like muscat. There were the tell-tale Albarino signs of nectarine, melon, gala apples, almond...but it was that interesting texture and almost honeyed touch that put it over the edge into excellence. Fantastic wine.

Ugh. Smelled nice although bitter and super high alcohol taste. Why was this so highly rated? Yuck

So never had an Albariño. Loved this. Much more interesting than a straight chard. Also bought their rose and will try soon.
