Paco & Lola Albarino 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Apple and citrus on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Floral and apple with light acidity on the finish
Albarino is a great Summer white. From the Rias Baixes region of Spain, it delivers full flavor and good acidity. This one is not quite as zippy as some, but it shows class and a well-rounded appeal. Expect to pay $12 or so.
I recommend you start with this well chilled, and enjoy it outdoors with appetizers as it warms up a bit in the bottle. Raise a glass!
