Albarino is worth checking out if you're not familiar with it already. A white wine produced in Riax Baixes, in Northwestern Spain, it compliments seafood extremely well and has a lively, fresh appeal.
The 2005's are out, and I've read some very complimentary reviews. Notably, this bottling in 2005 has won praise as a terrific value. I paid $12 for this 2004 at a local wine mercant a few months ago. Raise a glass!
