Albamar – Albarino, 2015

  • Basic info: Albamar Rias Baixas, Albarino, Spain – 2015
  • Type: White
  • Price estimate: $19 (Chamber Street Wines)
  • Look: Pale yellow with good legs.
  • Smell: lime and honey
  • Taste: Crisp. tart lime. Very light
  • Conclusions: This was definitely a unique wine and I’ve never had anything like it. The lime taste was very different, but very good with a faro taco salad and yogurt lime dressing. I liked it, but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
  • Other notes: Bob was fairly ambivalent about this wine, and I think I liked it more than he did. I’m use to lemon or grapefruit in wine, but not lime and at first the amount of  lime I tasted was a bit overwhelming. Definitely better fridge cold than wine fridge cold.
  • From the bottle: No bottle notes (although the bottle was in Spanish, so maybe there was and I couldn’t read them) but from Chamber Street, “This is Albarino the way we love it: crisp, mineral, saline, with great texture and a long finish.”
