Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Teeming with energy, this wine is 100% Albariño. It's mostly grown in the north of Spain, where it achieves lovely aromatics and freshness. The name translates to "white of the Rhine." That would definitely explain Albariño's aromatic character, if it came from Riesling's neck of the woods.
This wine is pale lemon in colour with subtle aromatics that come out better when this wine isn't chilled and is given time to develop in glass.
The aromas have a lot of nectarine and peach. There's some lemon juice, and honeysuckle, as well.
The palate is great. Lots of citrus keeps it fresh. There's a nice sugary almond/frangipane note that comes out, when not overchilled.
Pair it with ceviche, sushi, or a goat cheese salad.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Silky and zesty white wine. Lemon aroma and palate, with soft white peach. Fantastic with seafoods and pasta salads. Great sultry hot summer sipper, as well.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Attractive, yet fairly restrained nose for an Albarino, featuring ripe peach and floral notes. Crisp acidity, medium body, moderately concentrated peach and lemon flavours and a clean, lifted finish. Attractive, though slightly pricey.
Colin McKone rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of white grapefruit, pear and lemon. It is medium bodied with a pleasant mouthwatering acidity and will pair well with seafood or green salads.
Ashley Quesnel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This crisp Albariño is dry with notes of citrus and pear. Juicy with mouthwatering acidity; would pair wonderfully with seafood or summer pasta salads. Make sure you grab a bottle of this classic Spanish white before it sells out!
Jane Staples rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From Rias Baixas, Spain, a crisp, dry Albariño with citrus lemon and herbal notes and slight nutty touches on palate. Mouth-watering acidity makes this a super match with shellfish and salads.

Natalie's Review

Paco & Lola Albariño 2014, Rías Baixas D.O., Spain: Aromas of lime zest and lemon sunshine. Lots of acidity but not overwhelming, especially when you pair this bone-dry wine with food. 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.
