Moving from the Loire to Rías Baixas, this is an Albarino based wine blended with loureiro and treixadura, two indigenous Spanish grapes, and lightly oaked. This is thicker and rounder than many Albarinos, but it maintains the stark acidity and saline qualities that make these wines great with seafood.
The nose had pear, nectarine, loamy mineral and a touch of citrus with some wafts of a fresh sea breeze. The palate was pretty complex with citrus, seat salt/brine, a bit of vanilla, peach and pear with an awesome florality. This is not really your typical Albarino, but it is certainly darn tasty and the floral notes and orchard fruits work extremely well.
