Albarino from Rias Baixas, Spain
#35 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017
On the palate, there is medium-high intensity combined with a balance of acidity which gives the wine great structure that improves in the glass.
This big white is round and polished, with good weight and solid acidity behind the pear, blanched almond and white tea flavors. Ginger and briny notes give this a savory character. A muscular style. Drink now through 2022.
