Medium gold-colored the wine has excellent honey mineral orange marmalade and peach aromas and flavors in a just off-dry format.

I tend to drink big reds so I was quite surprised by this white. I never have tasted an Albarino. My knowledge of Spanish wines is pretty limited to Tempranillos. We had this with a salmon in a ginger soy butter and mustard seed-crusted tuna. I certainly like European wines with bold fusion flavors. The wine pared very well with these dishes for the value.
