Paco & Lola Albarino 2009


Winemaker’s Note:

White fruit (green apples, pear) and lemony aromas. Hints of herbs (basil) and flower blossom base notes. Surprising aromatic intensity. Palate: clean and textured. Seductive exotic palate of pineapple and mango intermingled with refreshing citrus flavors. Silky but yet full bodied, with long lingering finish. Round and very tasty.

Tasting Notes:

A brand new winery, Adegas Rosalía de Castro was founded by a group of experienced winegrowers who strive for excellence by combining tradition with the latest wine technology. Located in the heart of the Salnés, Adegas Rosalía de Castro has more than 493 acres dedicated solely to growing Albariño.

Pairing Notes:

Sushi, pastas, fish, rice dishes, white meats, seafood, fish and shellfish stews.

Happy Weekend! xo,Caitlin
