Bodegas Castro Martin 2012 Albarino 'Sobre Lias' was produced from old vine fruit


Bodegas Castro Martin 2012 Albariño "Sobre Lias"
Rías Baixas, Spain

The vineyards from which this Albariño was produced are on average 50 years old, lending the grapes intense, complex flavors. Having aged "on the lees" for five to six months, the wine also picked up yeasty aromas and flavors. A fine Albariño featuring white fruit aromas, it reveals peach, pear and lemon flavors with a generous minerality on the palate. Fresh white fish, oysters or sashimi would make excellent pairings.

Rating: 13.5/20
Price: $20
