2016 Xiradella Albarino
Rias Baixas, Spain
Xiradella Albarino is a delightful white wine gem from Adega Valdes that is the perfect accompaniment to seafood. This wine comes from the Rias Baixas region of Galicia in the northwest of Spain, where the vineyards are surrounded by pine and eucalyptus forests and the ruins of ancient Celtic fortresses. The wine is 100% Albarino, unoaked. We find Albarino is Spain's answer to the Viognier grape of the Rhone.
Xiradella Albarino is amber in color with an aromatic nose of honeysuckle, peach, pear, honey and mineral notes. Medium in body with crisp acidity, it offers flavors of peach, apricot, lemon, honeysuckle and orange, with no oak. It is beautifully balanced to enjoy in its youth, over the next 2-3 years. With excellent balance and a rich, silky texture, this wine coats the palate on the finish with long-lasting flavors.
Enjoy Xiradella Albarino with poached salmon, grilled chicken, shellfish and spicy Asian dishes.
