Albarino is the most exciting white wine to come along in years. Its perfumed aromas, crisp flavors and compelling affinity with food has made it all the rage. This one from top Rioja Bodega Ramon Bilbao is a beautiful example at a bargain price. Harvested by hand from vineyards located on the valley terraces and steep slopes of the Val do Salnes, over-looking the Atlantic ocean. Temperature-controlled maceration and vinification of free-run must impart the wine with its unique characteristics of freshness and aromatic intensity. The Wine Spectator said "The generous texture carries peach, kumquat, almond and light briny notes in this expressive white. Lively acidity keeps this balanced. Fruity and refreshing. Drink now."
