Burgans Albariño 2014
Characteristic pit-fruit quality and richness in addition to the bracing minerality for which the sub-zone is famous.
|Region||Spain, Galicia, Rias Baixas|
Wine SpectatorCrisp acidity gives this juicy white a sharp edge, but broader flavors of peach, kumquat and honeysuckle blossom on the palate. Focused and juicy. Drink now. 22,000 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateThis is from a famous bodega that was one of the first to import their Albarino to the United States. Albarino is now one of the hot, fashionable, light-bodied, dry whites, somewhat of a Spanish version of a light Condrieu from France's Northern Rhône Valley. This well-made Albarino is dry, quite crisp, with notes of honeysuckle, apricots and peaches in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style. Drink it over the next year, as most of its appeal is in its compelling fragrance.
