A light-bodied wine, aromas of spicy lemon, grapefruit and anise mingle with white pepper and quinine and flavors of citrus and lime zest.
Wine Enthusiast 88 points - This is classic Albarino; it has mineral, citrus and ocean aromas. These scents are backed by a round but fit palate with leesy freshness and flavors of apple, lime and natural vanilla. Stylish and pure on the finish; drink immediately.
