Licia Albarino 2016
Winemaker Notes :
Straw yellow with greenish hues, the Lícia Albariño has strong varietal characteristics with hints of grapefruit, candied fruit, quince jelly, notes of fresh herbs, green apples, and minerals. It is full bodied and well balanced, highlighting the aromas of citrus and green apple, with a long and persistent finish.
This wine pairs deliciously with grilled fish—or any kind of seafood—Asian cuisines, rice dishes, salads and grilled vegetables.
Wine SpectatorThis fleshy white offers pear, melon, blanched almond and tarragon flavors. Firm acidity keeps this focused through the citrusy finish. Drink now through 2020. 4,200 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastPunchy citrus, apple and lanolin aromas are a bit dusty and entirely typical of Rías Baixas Albariño. Direct citrus flavors and a note of briny orange peel finish a bit salty, with a hint of green banana.
