Vintage tasted 2009 Grapes Albariño

Overview Based on our recent encounters at restaurants and wine stores, Spanish Albariño seems to be coming into its own. We couldn’t be happier. This grape (known as Alvarinho across the Portuguese border) makes wonderfully fresh food wines that we’ll happily drink with a huge variety of dishes. This bottle is especially aromatic and fruity, which will help its crowd appeal, yet it retains impressive acid and freshness.

Nose Tropical fruit, oranges, roses, peach, and apricot combine to form a lively nose.

Mouth The same fruity and floral flavors continue, joined by bright acidity that keeps the wine from seeming cloying and helps it pair with food.
