Montecillo Albarino Rias Baixas 2009
External Reviews for Montecillo Albarino Rias Baixas
Clear and pale yellow in color with tinges of green. The nose is a cornucopia of bright fruit, including grapefruit, apple, pear and pineapple, with an underpinning of citrus. In the mouth this wine is rich, a touch salty, and very fresh. Well balanced, crisp and flavorful with clear notes of lychee and grapefruit, finishing long with a nice grip of acidity.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine called it "One of the best under $15 Albarinos going." and we agree. Dry, crisp and loaded with melon and citrus flavors. In The Wine Spectator, Matt Kramer puts Rias Baixas Albarino on his "bucket list" of wines you have to try, so here's your chance to enjoy one at a great value price. Finally Wine Enthusiast Magazine scoring it 87 points said “Fresh smelling, with notes of green melon, apple, honey and minerals. It’s more simple than complex, with crisp apple and orange flavors and then a chunky, slightly pithy finish. For under $15 this is good, casual Albariño that won’t steer you wrong.”
