Paco & Lola Albariño 2021
Straw yellow with greenish, bright and clear tones. Medium-high, citric notes (grapefruit and lime) and white flowers, acacia and orange blossom, with a sweet tropical background, intense aroma of lychees. Fresh, citric, intense and fruity mouth. Elegant, slightly bitter finish
Almost clear to the eye, this wine has a bouquet of Valencia orange and star fruit. Zesty flavors of pineapple, Meyer lemon, jasmine and a touch of lime sorbet are set into a full-textured wine with a satisfying finish.
A wine that consistently pleases year after year, this 2021 iteration has lovely upfront lemon blossom, lemon rind, and pure green apple fruit. There's lots of intensity here, so lots to like. There are 442 families involved in the Paco & Lola co-operative project in Rias Baixas, and all grapes are hand harvested. Fermented in stainless steel and aged on fine lees for at least three months, this manages to retain delicate floral characters as well as cooked lemons and stone fruit. It's medium-bodied, with decent acidity and length.
