Adegas Morgadio Albarino 750ML
Adegas Morgadio is one hundred per cent Albariño and the end result of the loving care with which we tend the grapes that grow on the Morgadío Estate. From its very first harvest it has been a luxury Rías Baixas wine, a standard bearer for this designation and the outcome of an outstanding Galician winemaking venture. With intense, clean fruity aromas, great structure in the mouth, well-rounded and with a powerful taste. Full and elegant retro olfaction.
Personally, I would trade up to the 2011 Morgadio Albarino has a distinctive nose of dried pineapple and fresh pear that displays admirable intensity. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry. There is a terse line of acidity and a lovely bitter lemon twist on the simple, but effective finish. Fine. Drink now-2018.
