Food Pairings for A2o Albariño 'Sobre Lias' Bodegas Castro Martin
A clean and intensly fresh wine that exhibits all the typical characteristics of the Albariño grape variety. Ripe and aromatic, with overtones of peach, melon and honey, offset by a crisp tangy acidity that helps to balance the rich fruit flavours. A well-rounded wine with a long, mellow, honeyed finish.
16 - 17,000 cases produced.
Notes: 6 months ageing on the lees
