Albariño wines are an exciting and aromatic delight, originating from the Rías Baixas region of Galicia, Spain. Known for their quality and freshness, these white wines highlight the unique character of the Albariño grape, making them a favourite with wine enthusiasts around the world.
Albariño wines have a pale straw colour with greenish reflections, giving a visual hint of their vibrant and refreshing nature. On the nose, they exude an alluring bouquet of floral notes, such as orange blossom and jasmine, which intertwine with fruity aromas of ripe peach, apricot and citrus.
What sets Albariño wines apart is their remarkable acidity, which gives a fresh and lively mouthfeel. This acidity, coupled with a medium-bodied structure, results in a balanced and refreshing palate. Albariño wines often boast aromas of juicy lemon, juicy grapefruit, tropical fruit and a good minerality that adds complexity to the overall experience.
Their vibrant acidity, salty taste and fruity profile make them a perfect match with seafood, especially oysters and clams. They are also ideal for salads and grilled vegetables, Asian-inspired dishes and spicy dishes.
Indulge in the charms of these exceptional wines and experience the distinctive Galician charm with every sip of Albariño.
