Albariño Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Albariño is an aromatic white wine. It is straw-gold in color with a green tinge. Our 2005 Albariño exhibits its distinctive varietal character with delicate aromas of pear, melon and mandarin rind. It is medium bodied in the mouth with a pleasing tropical lushness followed by a lingering finish. This Albariño shows excellent balance with its vivid, crisp acidity making it a wonderful accompaniment to seafood.

Varietal Definition
Albarino (known as Alvarinho in Portugal where it is used to make Vinho Verde). White wine grape variety, used to create a serious varietal wine with pleasant citrus fruit aroma, widely grown in regions of N.W. Spain and also in northern Portugal. Thought by some to be a Riesling clone originating from the Alsace region of France.
