Well, you've been a busy boy.
I was excited to see your very positive reaction to the Pazo Señorans Albariño. I bought some, recently, but have not opened it, yet. It turns out, though, that I have the 2011 vintage, and it appears that you tasted the 2010.

Albariño is wonderful stuff... highly underrated by most, but perhaps not so much by subscribers to this site (apoparently). My dentist is of Galician extraction so we have discussed this grape a few times (unfortunate circumstances for such a discussion notwithstanding).
The Riesling of Spain, undoubtedly, but wthout any of the aging potential of its august German counterpart.

Why do you say that Zuf? The grape wasn't entirely respected for years but more recently it's been given careful treatment and it can actually age. We don't know as much about it as we do Riesling, and it's usually fermented dry, unlike Riesling which comes in many iterations, but it has potential.
Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying it's generally in the same league at present, but it's another one of those grapes that we still don't know enough about. I have a few that I'm sitting on just to see for myself.

Emark: I've drink both of them.. 2010 and 2011 I will not say you nothing because I don't want to put idea on your mind on which was better.. the best way to uderstand Albariño is by drinking and analyzing it!
I hope the one you have will give you some orgasms hahahaha
ZUF and GREGT: Zuf is right,, Albariño, riesling, malvasia, and spanish gewurztraminner are undestimated.. not taking about the Rias Baixas varieties or the Extremadura ones (If we start naming them this post will never end. The advantage I have here in Colombia is that I can find a lot of Spanish wine varieties and as Greg says nowadays they are entering with great power in the market..
I will be posting more spanish wines on the following days.
Drink wine.. therefor exist!

No worries there, Marcelo. I will more than likely enjoy the Pazo--and the Val do Sosego that is currently laying right next to it. and the Paso a Paso Verdejo that is laying right next to it.
