There is much speculation around the origins of the Albariño vine. It has been linked with Riesling and Viognier, and on tasting the wines from this grape you can see a little of both in them. It is also believed to be indigenous to Spain, the country where it is most widely planted. The name Albariño translated is White (Alba) Rhein (Riño). The variety is now most prolific in the North West of Spain. Albariño (Alvarinho in Portugal) is also widely grown in northern Portugal.
The wine has refreshingly lifted aromas of citrus, nectarine and almond kernel. It is the perfect match for freshly shucked oysters drizzled with a chilli and lime sauce, or pan fried trout fillets with lemon juice, cracked black pepper and rocket salad.
Ideal for immediate drinking and will continue to age for 4 years from vintage.
Recommended food pairings: Albariño in northern Spain is traditionally drunk with the local seafood delicacies. This wine is the perfect match for freshly shucked oysters drizzled with a chilli and lime sauce, or pan fried trout fillets with lemon juice, cracked black pepper and rocket salad. It is also quite versatile so a selection of tapas will be sure to delight.
