2011 Vela Albarino

Another Albarino from Rias Baixis in Spain, coming from the rather difficult 2011 vintage in the region. This wine Spent approximately five months on lees, giving it some savory depth and character.

Apricot and stewed apple on the nose along with some savory yeasty elements. Soft palate with fairly low acidity and somewhat reminiscent of Viognier. This wine was much more interesting with food.

Price:      $20
