2011 Pazo Barrantes Albarino

This wine comes the Spanish region of Rias Baxis, the region best known for the production of Albarino. There seems to be a decent amount of this available in Australia, as I've seen it at a few of the larger retail stores. A good introduction to this grape and wine style.

Soflty aromatic with notes of apricot, cashew, lemon, and wet stone. There are also  hints of some more savory elements, perhaps resulting from some lees contact. A clean dry palate with more lemon and a hint of peach. An all round good value Albarino that is easy to find here in Australia.
