Spain is coming on strong with its white wines, especially those made with the native Alabarino grape, which is beginning to get some play on U.S. restaurant wine lists as an alternative to more neutral varieties. This crisp, bone-dry wine has plenty of character, with nuances of nuts, lemon, minerals and fresh peas. The 2008 is just arriving on the market; some stores may still be selling the 2007. From Baltimore's A.V. Brands.
