2017 Albarino (Laxas)

Laxas, Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain, 2016

100% Albarino

TROPICAL AROMATICS, AWESOME MINERALITY, CRISP PEAR FINISH

Fresh, juicy, very dry, and full of minerally terroir, this Albariño from the Laxas (la-shas) winery is first class - produced from old vines in the more oceanic reaches of western Galicia. This white shows an Atlantic saline-like quality which renders it positively delicious with seafood, and the melon, pear, and mineral notes are almost like a meal in themselves. Finishing with impressive length, richness, and a bit of banana essence, this is serious Albariño for the money.

Serving Suggestion:

In Spain they would eat gooseneck barnacles, but here in the US we're more than happy to pair this with nearly any great shellfish, especially mussels will be perfect.
