Pale to medium straw color. Peachy, lemon/citrus, green apple and floral nose. Mouthwatering, with green apple and lemon zest on the palate and plenty of lemon-lime acidity in the finish. Tart acid and a full, fruity palate make this wine pair particularly well with shrimp, crab, oysters and other shellfish; with white pizzas; fritto misto, especially with rock shrimp, red onions and lemons; Caesar salad, even sushi. Look for foods that are light in weight but high in flavor.
The 2018 Albarino opens with expressive peach juice, fresh lemon and lime blossom scents plus touches of wet pebbles and dill seed. Light to medium-bodied, the palate delivers intense citrus and stone flavors with a racy backbone and an alluring zesty purity to the finish.
