- Benito Santos Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 Product #30717 (In Stock)
Remarkably creamy in texture for Albarino but still plenty fresh.
"Light, green-tinged yellow. Lively, precise scents of lemon zest, quince, mint and dusty minerals, with a suave floral overtone. Dry, racy and focused, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors that put on weight with air while retaining vivacity. This bracing wine finishes spicy, stony and very long."

- Frore de Carme Envidia Cochina Albarino 2014 Product #30393 (In Stock)
Yes, it's organic/biodynamic (check out the bottling info on the back label), aged in barrel, rests in a strange bottle and has a snail on the label. Ignore all that, because this wine shines like sunshine in the glass. It's a rich, creamy, selzery Albarino with tightly wound apricot, passion fruit, and seashell aromas and flavors that broaden and deepen with air. It's a compelling drink-alone choice but shellfish (or even snails) are its natural match. A stunner.
