Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clean moderate intensity aromas from stone fruit (apricot), fresh red apple, honey and an odd hay note. This albarino is light bodied, off-dry, and carries high acidity. Key flavours include: grapefruit, lime, mineral and a touch of honey. The mouthfeel and texture is slightly oily as well. Pair this long finishing wine with shellfish.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon colour with enticing aromas and flavours of citrus,peach, toast, smoke, nuts, butter. A nice mouthcoating texture with racy cleansing acidity. This medium-bodied white wine from Spain makes a nice change from Chardonnay. Enjoy it with shellfish, Tilapia, calamari, Paella.
Tasted: June 2015
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale gold colour, the nose shows chalky minerality wrapped up in tropical and stone fruit. Ideal with seafood and grilled fish, Albranio is a terrific white wine to enjoy in the summer. Tasted June 2015. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jane Staples rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

PAZO DAS BRUXAS Translates roughly as "Dance of the Witches". Lovely fresh citrus nose, lots of lemon on the palate, racy acidity and a long citrus finish. Great with shellfish, salads or on a hot day - better than lemonade!

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
