Community Tasting Notes 4

    November 2, 2013 - A pale colored wine with a slight yellow hue, on the nose it reveals citric peel, peach, apricots, white flowers, sea breeze, and white pepper. Mid bodied showing flavors of citric peel, apricots, refreshing acidity, and a long saline finish with some crushed seashells. Clean crisp flavors that are delicious and refreshing.

    September 5, 2013 - Pale yellow color. Aromas of flowers, pear, and sea breeze. This really shows depth on the palate with a stony character that accentuates the floral fruit and melon notes that carry into a persistent, long finish. Best Albarino I've had, maybe ever. Delicious and engaging. Drink or hold.

    August 28, 2013 - Opened for 30 min and it shows a fresh bouquet of pear, fenner, wet grass and anise. On palate it's young with plenty of fruit like pineapple, mango and citrus. The mid palate is direct, carrying a mineral profile, wet stones but it is also olily and finishes with a citric and smoked taste. Really good now, should be even better with 1-2 more years. An albariño to stockpile as a daily drinker. 89+

    May 7, 2013 - Very minerally, elegant, long, but young, Albarino. Good complexity, briny, should age well. Impressive and distinctive.

    Not surprised to see this at the top of a recent NY Times tasting, although overall Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas is my #1. And, while I don't disagree that there is probably a small sea of Albarino that is pleasant but not particularly distinctive, this is true of many regions. Bottles like this one, Do Ferreiro, Benito Santos, Pedralonga, Zarate, and others are complex, mineral wines that are extremely food friendly and well-priced. I find Albarino somewhat like Muscadet (although the latter is often even a better value); the producers at the top make very distinctive wines of character that are extremely well-priced for the money.
