Aromas of sliced pear, melon, mango and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a juicy, fruity and fresh palate. Delicious now. Screw cap.
The uniqueness of this vineyard lies in its Southern orientation, assuring shelter from intense sunlight and direct exposure to the ocean breeze. This heightens the vibrant minerality of the varietal.
Straw gold in colour, this Albarino is fresh and vibrant and presents tropical fruits with subtle oral notes in the nose. In the mouth, it expresses a round and fresh body, with saline and mineral rich undertones, which make it a wine with a marked sense of terroir.

Excellent pairings for this wine are cod with cockles, citrus prawn salad, or traditional grilled seafood with warm mango salad and beans. It is delightfully well suited to Asian food, Peruvian ceviche, or a fresh tuna salad.
