Albarino Estylo Puro 2011

Member Review by JenniferT:

Pale yellow colour with very slight green tinge. A complex yet subtle nose (floral - not really perfume but more sweet grass/wildflower/chamomile tea, honey, stonefruit, and just a hint of salty/sharp minerality. Really intense and complex on the palate, which was a nice surprise. No oak and complex fruit ranging from crisp apple to sweet stonefruit peach, with floral notes and a LOOOONG finish that is carried through by a tangy acidity. The fruit comes across as subtle due to everything else that's going on. My other half detected notes of salt/minerality (a salty brininess with a touch of smoke) on the finish that reminded him of serrano ham. FYI - Not only was this wine enjoyable and interesting, it paired with a wide range of foods really well - including jerk chicken! And I ran out to get some Spanish jamon serrano just to check the pairing - it was just sublime!
