The 2016 Sensum Laxas Sparkling Albariño is made from 100% estate-grown Rias Baìxas Albariño grapes. It is fermented in the traditional method, the way it’s done in Champagne. Alcohol tips 12.7% abv, and the price hits nearly $30.
This sparkler has intense bubbles and a nose of green apples, citrus and floral notes. On the palate, minerals abound. There’s a very nice acidity, with a creamy aspect on top of it. This wine will pair with any type of seafood, but try it with oysters.
