Tasting Note

Yellow gold, clean and bright with gold trim. Intensity and aromatic complexity on the nose reminiscent of spring flowers, wrapped in notes of mango and pineapple. The palate shows a perfect balance between smoothness and acidity, with hints of tropical fruit combined with aromatic herbs. Elegant, round, mineral and complex wine. Very long.

Food Pairing

As well as to be enjoyed on its own as a refreshing aperitif, this Albariño is perfect with a plate of oysters, a seafood platter and fish. Great with citrus-based fish dishes but also can cut through some creamy or buttery dishes due to its acidity.
