The Oddbins Take

Spain may be best known for reds, and Rioja in particular, but it’s arguable that its greatest single contribution to the world of wine is a white – specifically the white wine made from the Albarino grape, native to Galicia in the country’s far North-West. This unique, utterly distinctive and truly world class variety produces wine that is super crisp, vivacious and absolutely second to none as a match for seafood, and particularly shellfish. This elegant example from the rapidly emerging Ribeiro region is, as its name suggests, a pure expression of this marvellous grape.
