Wine Review: I recently attended a blind tasting of wines from Rias Biaxas. In the flight of Albarinos, this wine was the clear winner. It is a light yellow colored wine that opens with a fragrant pear and peach like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, viscous, and very nicely balanced with really tasty green apple like flavors. The finish is dry and it also lingers nicely. I felt this wine would be a perfect wine to pair with lemon drizzled grilled swordfish. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The legacy of the Morgadío estate has been to introduce ripe, balanced wines from the prized Albariño grape of the cool and misty Mino River valley. Refreshing peach and citrus flavors show why this wine is the ideal choice for enjoying with fish, clams, and calamari.
