Montecillo 2008 Albari

(Last Updated On: 12/17/2009)

Albariño is a sadly unfamiliar grape, but I’m hoping people will embrace this crisp, acid-forward, grapefruit-ful wine. Hailing originally from Rías Baixas in northwest Spain’s coastal region, it pairs well with that region’s seafood-centric cuisine. Bodegas Montecillo’s version definitely has grapefruit, lime and generous acidity but also the sweet tang of pineapple and a flinty finish. Super refreshing. 4 stars out of 5. Sweetness=1 out of 10 (dry to sweet). $14
