Garcia Viadero Blanco de Albillo 2012

Member Review by JenniferT:

This albillo wine is an interesting one. Research indicates that there are actually a number of grapes listed as albillo, but the fact that this wine hails from Castilla y Leon suggests that it is indeed Albillo Mayor. It's a dry, full bodied wine with well balanced acid. (Our best yet uncertain guess was that it was Viognier during a blind tasting...just so you have something to compare). It's fresh, clean and floral with notes of white peach and honeydew. We were happy to drink it both on its own and with a simple lemon/anchiovy pasta. FYI: I read that the Ribera Del Duero doesn't actually allow for white wines so this wine is instead classified as a "vino de la tierra", or "land wine".

Leuchtendes, frisches Hellgelb. Aromatische, fruchtige Note. Ausgeglichen und harmonisch auf dem Gaumen. Gute Säurestruktur, mittelkräftige Statur mit langem Abgang.
