2009 Pazo de Señorans Albariño Rias Baixas

SKU #1064182

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pazo Senorans’ 2009 Albarino beautifully displays the high quality of the 2009 vintage in Rias Baixas. Light gold in color, it offers up a splendid bouquet of mineral, honeysuckle, lemon, and tropical aromas. Round, creamy, and remarkably concentrated, this outstanding effort will provide much pleasure over the next 4 years." (04/10) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow-gold. An intensely perfumed bouquet shows aromas of nectarine, iodine, lees and pungent flowers, with a strong mineral undertone. Very rich and exotic but possesses a serious spine of acidity, which adds lift to broad tropical and pit fruit flavors. The lees and iodine notes repeat on a long, floral- accented finish. This wine's marriage of power and vibrancy, not to mention its complexity, is very impressive." (Nov/Dec 2010)

As you can read the reviews from people who drink for a living, I will only post my appreciation for this wine and spare you the finer points. This is my new favorite white under $20. I find it drinkable alone or with any kind of food commonly paired with whites. To be honest, I'd happily drink it next to a strip steak. The best temperature seems to be around 12C/55F (no surprise), but it is really solid anywhere from 5-20C/40-68F. Most French, fruity whites are very particular about the temperature, but this Spanish white is not. The official reviews do have it right on the detail, but as a personal vignette, it's May and I bought a case to give for Christmas. That's how pleasant it is.

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
