This is quite simply the best domestic Albarino we have tasted. Selected from the best lots in the vineyard by Alan and vineyard manager George Donati, Bodegas M 2012 Albarino Querida displays the characteristic “racy” palate that one finds in the best wines of the Rias Baixas, as well as a rich underpinning of seasoned French oak, which endows the wine with a warm, spicy palate as well. Aromas and flavors of citrus, “pina”, and stone fruit make this as complex an Albarino as you will taste ANYWHERE! An excellent foil to fresh shellfish or whitefish, as well as chicken picatta or veal chop agri- dolce, this exceptional wine is limited, with only 188 cases bottled. Aged 6 months in bottle before release.
