Wine Find: 2009 Salneval Albarino

December 20, 2010|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

Albarino from the Rias Baixas Galicia region of Spain is one of the most exciting categories of dry white wines on the market today. The best known is Martin Codax, a fine wine, but I like this even more. It's crisp and intense, with flavors of nuts, herbs, green apple, pears, citrus and Asian spices. For its price, it's impressively complex. What a wonderful alternative to ABC — Another Boring Chardonnay.
