The character of the wine is expressed entirely in this wine, where fruit is the predominant note. Grapes have been respectfully cared for in all steps of winemaking. After careful grape selection at harvest in the vineyard, the grapes are transported to the winery in small plastic crates. After a delicate extraction and settling of the grape juice, a long fermentation is made at a low temperature.
Light straw in color, the nose of this Albariño is seductive with honey, pear and tropical fruit and a slight mineral component. It’s racy and zesty with citrus and floral flavors in the mouth, yet is round and soft at the same time. It matches perfectly with fresh seafood and shellfish; is an ideal accompaniment to salty, spicy Asian cuisine; and is also great on its own as a cocktail wine.
Truly adventurous food lovers will amaze and inspire their friends by serving it with the unlikely, but fantastic pairing of traditional barbequed ribs with a sweet, slightly spicy tomato based sauce.
This 2015 Adega Condes de Albarei Salneval Albarino begins with aromas of honey, pear, some zesty citrus notes and just a touch of almond. Tasting this creamy and smooth wine shows flavors of zesty citrus and tropical fruit along with some honey notes and good acidity. The pleasant finish includes some lingering sweet and tangy notes. Really just an easy to drink wine that is great for summer.
