Coniusa Castell de Raimat Albariño D.O. 2013, Spain

My Rating 77 Points.   

Price $12. 
Today is National Albariño day, so I had to open one and sit by the pool.

Deep gold in color with a green hue.

Clean nose of lemons, red apples, melons, almonds, vegetables, herbs, grass, spices and white pepper.

Medium bodied and crisp, with high acidity.

Bone dry on the palate with limes, green apples, grapefruits, herbs, almonds and butter.

Short finish with herbs and bitter almonds.

This Albarino is not good by itself, but rather better when accompanied with food. Too tart and bitter for my taste. I paired it with tuna ceviche and soft cheeses. ( the pool helped too)

12.5% alcohol by volume.
