2005 Agro de Bazan Albariño Rías Baixas Granbazán Ambar

This is a very delicious Albarino that we enjoyed tonight out on the bistro. Great golden color in the glass, much darker than a sauvignon blanc and some chardonnay. On the nose, many different fragrances protruding to include lemon, lime, and grapefruit. On the palate, lots of acidity and minerality, with more lemon, and pear, with hints of passion fruit and spice. The finish was a bit on the acidic side, and a tad sour, but all in all, I have no complaints at all about this wine. Makes a good summer sipper worth of 87 points! Cheers!
