Nice change of pace from the normal varieties I usually find around the house. Even better while watching the virtual tasting and learning more about this region and this variety. To me, very similar to a Pinot Grigio but refreshingly different. Light and soft on the palate with a tropical fruit profile with a hidden spice that I couldn't quite place. For some reason I pulled a slight amount of anise out of it. Subtle but pleasant finish. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. Will buy this bottle again.

This was my first Albarino, and still a go to bottle. This vintage has more of a saline quality, but still good balance of grapefruit and honeysuckle. Definitely a great seafood match and summer quencher.

Perfectly balanced between crisp green apple freshness and heavy, syrupy complexity. The finish is round and full with an acidic streak that cuts through and finishes clean.

Light, bright yellow. Lively lemon and lime aromas are complemented by melon, pear and salty minerals. Juicy and focused, offering brisk citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a late note of smoky herbs. Gains sweetness with air and finishes with an appealing note of fresh pineapple. I like this wine's blend of sweetness and cut.

The 2009 Albariño is light gold-colored with a lovely bouquet of white flowers, hazelnut, peach pit, and mineral. On the palate it is surprisingly complex for its bargain price with a viscosity bordering on opulence. If you enjoy Albariño, this is one to buy by the case. Burgans' Albariño is an annual Best Buy in this journal but the superb 2009 vintage in Rias Baixas has carried it to new heights.

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.

This fruity white delivers blood orange, peach and papaya flavors in a round, soft texture, but bright acidity keeps it lively. Gentle but flavorful. Drink now.

Burgans is a custom cuvee made for importer Eric Solomon. While it's not the best Albarino on the market, in terms of bang for the buck, it has no challenger. The 2007 Burgans Albarino is light gold-colored with a sprightly nose of mineral, spring flowers, and lemon peel. Ripe, balanced, and concentrated, this is an ideal match for flaky fish courses. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.
