There is a special sort of malaise that is liable to overtake one during the summer months when, feeling a sudden thirst, one realises he is without that supremely dependable, pure, crisp and flavoursome white wine which would make his life complete. One can see it in one's mind's eye, sure enough - chilled, with a fine frosting of condensation on the bottle, conjuring images of waves lapping the shore, iridescent sea spray and great teeming platters of massive prawns, but upon opening the fridge door: nothing, vacant space, an accusatory absence which no other beverage can remedy. You may not realise it, but that void in your life is albariño-shaped.


Tasting Notes

White flowers mingle with pear, peach, apple, a little tropical fruit and faint herbal notes. Deliciously quaff-worthy with refreshing, tangy citrus and tropical fruit on the palate. Lively acidity, nice palate-weight and a touch of sea salt minerality. It's perfect for crossing the divide between drinkers of Sauvignon and Chardonnay; it has the light pleasing freshness of Gavi, but with sunnier disposition and more interesting flavour without being over the top. A pretty perfect house wine!
