Albariño 'Dandelion' Alberto Nanclares, Rias Baixas, Galicia, Spain 2016

15.95

A knockout Albariño from Mr Albariño himself, Alberto Nanclares. He really ought to be called Albariño Nanclares, but that might be taking nominative determinism too far, and could also get confusing, because he makes a wine called Albariño Nanclares. Anyhoo, this comes from vines on the cusp of old age (average 30 years) and sees extended lees contact, so although you get plenty of vibrant, energetic, youthful Albariño fruit to the fore, there's a creaminess (cream soda?) and a textural weight that gives the wine a bit more gravitas than most. 12% alc. Drink now-2019.
