$16.95 (945063) Spain – DO Rias Baixas
The 2009 Albarino is light gold coloured with a lovely bouquet of white flowers, hazelnut, peach pit and mineral. On the palate it is surprisingly complex for its bargain price with a viscosity bordering on opulence. If you enjoy Albarino, this is the one to buy by the case. Burgans’ Alabrino is an annual Best Buy but the superb 2009 vintage has carried it to new heights.
