Burgans Albarino 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Light golden color

Nose of light melon with floral notes

Smooth core of acidity, lively and fresh

Smooth, clean finish

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!
