Bodegas As Laxas Albariño Rías Baixas 2011
Editorial Reviews for Bodegas As Laxas Albariño Rías Baixas
Fresh pithy lime on the nose with a hint of salty sand and some emerging sweet green apple background notes round out the nose. Somewhat rich and downright silky on the palate. This offers good, very well-integrated acidity that supports rather subtle, lightly mineral flecked green apple and green orange flavors. The finish really firms up nicely with good mineral cut and fine length. This is a touch round and soft for my palate, but still manages to deliver a really fine experience. 89pts

Sleek and polished, this focused white offers pear, citrus ... Drink now. -TM
NO RATING, UNACCEPTABLE, BAD
This wine is not an Aegean Island wine and it is a fraud who ever listed this winw here.
A clean, bright wine, straw yellow in color with greenish tinges. An intense aroma on the nose, perfectly blending with the fruity and floral notes, highlighting apple and stone bearing fruit like apricot. Typical freshness of Albariño on the palate, with a highly fitting acidity perfectly balanced with the structure and body of the wine.
Pale greenish yellow color, with moderate aromas of jasmine flower, stone fruit, and tart green apples. This Albariño is dry, medium heavy bodied, with lively acidity, and long finish. On the palate are flavors of fresh green garden herbs, white nectarine, and granny smith apples. This Albariño is a little richer than others I have tried which might be because it is from the Condado do Tea which is the warmest sub region of Rías Baixas. A beautiful example of the Queen of Spanish white varietals. 3.5/5
THis is clearly a food wine. this ain't for sipping. Went poretty badlywith thai food, which is what albarino is supposed to go with...can't really see it going with anything else. maybe spicy seafood. weird aftertaste.
