- Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Product #31053 (In Stock)
Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif and sings with salads, too!
“A highly expressive bouquet evokes fresh peach, melon and passionfruit, and a minerally nuance adds vivacity. Silky and open-knit, offering sappy orchard and pit fruit flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. Deftly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and smooth, featuring an echo of ripe peach and bracing ginger and mineral notes.” Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points
“Gloriously aromatic with jasmine and flint notes; very scented. Full and fleshy palate with a mineral follow-through and an intense, harmonious finish. A very lovely Albariño that is so pure.” Decanter 92 points
- Pazo Castrelo Albarino Rias Baixas 2014 Product #31204 (In Stock)
A fun Albarino with abundant, zesty, fruit supported by classic Albarino salinity. Excellent value, too.
"This wine is light lemon in color, with a vibrant, citrusy nose that’s accented by sweet spice. The zingy palate is doused with lime zest, crushed ginger, white peach and lemon curd. Racy acidity and hints of tannin makes this a terrific food wine. The midpalate has a touch of creaminess to soak up the tingling, vibrant juiciness. The tug-of-war of succulence and tension makes for a fun drink."Wine Enthusiast 90 points
