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

Flowery, pollen, peach, green plum, a little waxy, touch of seashell – vibrant acids on entry, ripe and round feeling with an almost lush quality to the the peach and apricot fruit, even a touch of apricot pit adding a nice bit of tension in the mouth, touch os mineral spice on the finish. Solid – 87pts

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.

A custom cuvee made for the American importer, this wine used to be known as Martin Codax as it comes from that well-known cooperative. With medium body as well as wonderfully crisp, orange marmalade, mineral, and flowery tropical fruit notes, it is ideal for enjoying with seafood and shell fish. It is also a terrific bargain.

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.

The best way to understand these dry, fruity, aromatic white wines made from the Albarino grape in northwestern Spain, is that they are somewhat reminiscent of Viogniers made in France. The 1996 Burgans possesees an intense, apricot, peachy, and fruit cocktail-scented nose, excellent ripeness, medium body, crisp acidity, and a fresh, lively style. It requires consumption over the next year.

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.

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.

To date, this year's best value among Spanish white wines is this simple but lovely fruit bomb of an Albarino from the quality-driven Martin Códax cooperative. It literally overflows with peach blossom aromas and melon flavors. Brightly labeled with orange print, it's hard to miss. And you wouldn't want to.
