Drink More Albarino!

100% Albarino from Rias Baixas, Spain.

SRP of $19 and available for as low as $14. Sample received courtesy Masaveu Bodegas and Folio Fine Wine Partners for review purposes.

From the bottle:
"Fillaboa was made exclusively from Albarino grapes grown in our estate vineyards. Fillaboa belongs to Bodegas Y Vinedos de Casa Masaveu.

13.0% Alcohol"
We've covered a number wines made from Albarino here on The Reverse Wine Snob including several from Rias Baixas in Spain, which might be the most renowned region for this delicious variety. Those wines include:

The 2010 Bodegas Fillaboa Albarino Rias Baixas begins with lots of lemon, peach and grapefruit aromas along with hints of custard. Tasting the wine reveals many of the same flavors as the bouquet (lemon, peach and a bit of creamy custard) along with some melon notes. This light-bodied wine has a very nice, fresh acidity. It ends with tart citrus highlights that last a good time. Yum.
