I had a fun afternoon volunteering at the TAPAS grand festival in San Francisco, and had the opportunity to try a few nice bottles after my volunteer shift. This Albarino was a big hit with the seminar attendees. Very aromatic, with freshly sliced green apple and sweet lemon on the nose. The midpalate is crisp yet also a little juicy and I definitely taste that ripe citrus fruit. Finish is racy… some nice acidity with lemon and pineapple notes. Nice and balanced, with enough acidic backbone to make it a nice food wine. This is a great summer white that would ROCK with grilled seafood!
I went to Abacela’s table to try a few of their other wines and really enjoyed the whole lineup. Very tasty wines!
