Albarino is the noble white of the Spanish region Galicia, which means these are awesome seafood wines. This offering from Valminor is dry and tropical in style, with scents of green apples and citrus in the mix. The palate is medium-bodied, with lots of tropical fruit salad and apricot flavours, zippy, citrusy acidity, and a dry, savoury-edged, cleansing finish. This will cellar over the next 3-5 years.
Nashi gains a lifted tropical scent, mentholated lime and green mango; the palate is similarly rich with tropical splendour and ripe pear, edged by limey acid and a granitic, gravelly mineral finishing perfume and textural nip. Beautiful balance of the perfumed and the savoury is an outstanding feature.
