Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 90/100
Aromas of lemongrass, lime peel and chives. Lots of racy acidity on this bone-dry wine. Perfect for all types of seafood dishes. Clean, crisp and zesty Spanish white wine made from the country's iconic white varietal Albariño. The grapes are estate grown and bottled.
Albariño food pairings: linguine with crab meat, falafel, grilled veggies, hearty soups and stews.
Profound Pasta and Cream Sauce Wine

|Craig Haynes WSET 3, FWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Crafted with 100% Albarino, this wine hails from a growers’ cooperative and showcased positive benefits of free run juice and 12 month sur lie aging. From grapes grown in the sandy loam soils of Rias Baixas growing region, it boasted find ripe citrus and stone aromas that continued into the medium bodied palate and clean finish. Enjoy.

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Ripe lemon and lime, zesty acidy and quite dry with lovely flavors of lime, peach and a hint of floral and expressive minerality. A shining example of a Spanish Albarino.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Some people call Albarino the Iberian answer to Riesling. That makes sense, since the name Albarino can be split into two root words. Alba: white, rino: Rhine (Riesling's historic home).
Bright lemony-yellow colour, with some dissolved CO2. That is common on womes fermented anaerobically at low temperatures. It is done to keep it siluper fresh and fruity. The bubbles dazzle for a few minutes, but they don't last.
Flavours of lemon chiffon, citrus peel, white grapefruit, sweet-lime, chive, fresh sage and basil.
More grapefruit and lemon on the palate. Mac apple and a touch of honey too.
Put this wine alongside shrimp tacos with a spicy salsa fresca.
