Soft pear fruit, leafy fruit on the nose with notes of carambola, carnations, and a touch of candlewax – Bright and juicy in the mouth with succulent pear and peach fruit tones in a lean, crisp frame. Gains a nice sweet edge on the mid-palate and finishes with a touch of lime peel. 86pts

The nose is smokey melon and peaches with a similar palate with some apricot thrown in. The finish is sweet and nicely acidic.

Medium intensity tropical fruit aromas of papaya and stone fruits (peach) on the nose. A hint of sweetness on the palate's attack with a dry finish, it's lightly flavored but quite refreshing with good acidity and citrus zest.

Soft and round, with bright tropical fruit and a nutty minerality. 100% Albariño from Galicia's Rías Baixas zone, this aromatic white wine is named for a hill called Burgans, which overlooks the Atlantic.

This white wine is produced in the Rias Baixas region in northwest Spain. The Albariño grapes are grown on canopies high above the ground. This allows for increased air circulation and reduces exposure to ground moisture ensuring that the grapes attain their fullest potential. This light-bodied wine is brimming with luscious peach and apricot flavors and finishes dry.

Now almost a classic, the latest vintage in the brown bottle has a bright floral, fruity nose with medium richness and vibrant flavors of ripe pear. Nice acidity keeps everything fresh and clean, while the long, light, elegant finish keeps you coming back for more. Excellent as an aperitif or with simple seafood dishes.

Ripe and luscious, this rich white from Spain is redolent of pears, peaches and melons, full-bodied yet clean and refreshing. The lively fruit makes an impact; the wine stays balanced and harmonious. More than worth the modest asking price. Drink now.

This firm, juicy white mingles flavors of tangerines, melon and herbs in a bright yet generous texture. It's not big, but stays graceful through the finish. Drink now.

The latest vintage of the Spanish classic begins with a flora nose reminding one of freshly-bloomed lilacs. Light apricot and lime notes slip creamily over the palette into a finish of notable length for a wine of such bright acidity.

A new vintage, but the same great Albariño! Hailing from the Galicia region of Spain on the northwest Atlantic coast, it's no wonder that this white matches up to your most scrumptious lobster, oyster, scallop, and shellfish recipes. It will also pair well with chicken and some Asian dishes with a mild spice. The nose is refreshingly floral with scents of sweet lilacs and the reminder of a coming spring. It's a light to medium bodied wine with a mouthful of fruit. You'll notice some light apricot and a little lime flavor as it slips over your tastebuds, but the low amount of acid makes this less crisp and fruity than Sauvignon Blanc. A slight cream hints at the fullness of this grape's potential. A good choice for anyone who's interested in Sauvignon Blancs, Viogniers, or Sèmillon blends as the fruit is appealing and the depth is satisfying.
