Pazo Barrantes Albarino 2011

Albarino has its place - particularly with a seafood paella - but I've tried some awfully expensive ones over the years that I don't think offer up great comparative value.  Here however is an albarino from Pazo Barrantes that's perfectly good drinking and only a bit over $20.  It has typical albarino musky aromatics, with lemon citrus and a slightly confectionary fruitiness to it.  The palate is broad, with ripe peaches, straw and cereal notes, good length and a certain chardonnay like fatness to it.  A well made and very good example of albarino at a good price.  Good

Abv: 13%
