Fillaboa Albariño Rías Baixas 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smells vaguely of olive oil with its blend of green fruit and peppery herbal undertones. The acid offers nice cut on entry and the years of aging has certainly given this a broader mouthfeel with the fresh fruit flavors showing no worse for wear. There’s a lot of slightly baked apple here with a hint of quince and some modeler’s glue adding complexity to the core of peach and dried mango flavors. This is not your everyday Albarino, and as such, you need to know what you’re getting into here. It’s a more meditative wine that lacks some of the sheer excitement of the best young Albarino, but makes up for it with added richness and complexity. Just a bit short on the finish. 89pts

Fragrant nose filled with floral and peach notes. Lots of peaches and grapefruit on the palate as well, with a trace of minerality that I'm really digging these days. Bit of effervescence lends this a supremely refreshing, easy-to-drink quality. Excellent with butter pan-fried breaded cod.
