Vionta Albariño Rías Baixas 2011
90 points Peñín Guide: (100% albarino). Colour: bright straw. Nose: fresh, fresh fruit, citrus fruit, frangrant herbs. Palate: flavourful, fruity, good acidity, fine bitter notes. (2013) On the nose are found fruit aromas, some of them tropical, with green apple, banana and melon standing out. Initially soft on the palate, with a pleasing acidity, which develops into a harmony of fruit, dominated by peach. Long finish, highly aromatic, a classic characteristic of the Albariño. Food Pairings: A perfect aperitif wine. It has a brisk and tempting acidity and it pairs very well with cold cracked crab or any grilled white-fleshed fish. Its layers of flavor would also work well with a spicy Thai red curry or a Chinese black bean sauce. Alcohol 13%.
Editorial Reviews for Vionta Albariño Rías Baixas
Creamy lemon meringue notes with toasted hazelnuts and sustained fresh lemon underlying the complexity. Pleasantly crisp and fresh in the mouth on entry but with an earthy toast and creaminess supporting the fruit and rounding out the textured mouthfeel, finishing clean and light once more with melon and lemon fading into a toasty memory.
Three and a half glasses
bright, fruity nose. smooth apple taste with a mild finish.
Two and a half glasses
Exceptionally good value on this wine. Gold in color. Aromas of ripe, ripe apple and pear. Touch of honey along with the sweet golden delicious apple flavors. Nice juicy finish, good acidity. Hard to do better (even with Albarino) at this price point.
