2007 Licia Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1050255

92 points Wines & Spirits: "The fresh flavors of this wine fall between nuts and fruit, hinting at loquat or kumquat. Its mouthwatering acidity has the briny character of sea spray. Harmonious in the middle, quiet and lasting in the end, this is a luscious white for Dover sole." (8/09) The 2007 Licia shows the benefit of an extra year in bottle for good albariņo; ripe red apple aromas lead to a mouthful of rich, round, yellow stone fruit, some tell tale albariņo smoky granite tinged minerality, and a hint of salinity on the finish which is amazingly fresh and invites you to take another sip, or, more likely, a gulp. Drink this chilled while you wait for your skewers of chicken, shrimp, meat or veges to finish up on the grill. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
