Licia Albarino Rias Baixas Licia 2014

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This shows an almost herbal note early on nose followed by peach and dried lemon pith aromas. Quite smooth and polished in the mouth, though with no shortage of brightening acidity, this shows rather intense lemon, quince and almost tropical fruit flavors. The finish reverts to lighter apple notes but superimposed on lovely suggestions of green tea and hints of minerality. 88pts

Limey and bright on the nose with a touch of herb. A little sweetish on entry with a fresh, simple core of grapefruit orchard fruit. This is light enough to let the acid lend some freshness, but the texture is just a bit sticky and the finish has a bit of heat. 84pts

Mary said it was the best white of the year (June 2013). Of course it should be noted, her total to date summer white wine samplings now number two. She consumed this with her friend, Joyce, while I was in Texas visiting our 23 month old granddaughter. I have placed an order for another half case, so I might too enjoy this Albarino. Those additional six are finished. It is now (6-18-2014) and they are all gone from my small, yet special, cellar. Simply the best young white wine out there people! Go get some before I buy it all. OK, honestly, you have time, limited retirement budget here, but do not miss this taste treat.

Update - May 2015: I just had this wine again at Chop Shop in Chelsea (Manhattan, not London) with a vegetarian Thai curry. Great value and nice pairing!

100% Albarino delivers up green apple and lemon flavors and maybe a hint of honey. Nice bright acidity without overpowering. A great alternative to Sauv Blanc and great with fresh seafood and seafood cocktails.

Made from 100% Albariño, estate grown fruit from the subzones of O Rosal and Condado de Tea. This is a single tank cuvee that showcases yellow and green apple fruit characteristics as well as a pleasing minerality and a fresh lemon finish. A delicious Albariño for quaffing.

Straw yellow with greenish hues, the Licia Albarino has strong varietal characteristics with hints of citrus, such as grapefruit, candied fruit and quince jelly, along with notes of fresh herbs, green apples and minerals.
