100% Albillo Real
Subtle nose of apple, white peach golden plum, followed by a wonderful texture on the palate-it feels rich, rounded & smooth -then finishes with fresh, mineral and slightly saline tang. A fantastic introduction to this intriguing variety.
Pairs well with white meat, seafood and lobster.
