The 2018 Eidosela Albariño was made from grapes grown in the Condado do Tea sub-region. The destemmed fruit is crushed, pressed, decanted, filtered, fermented, racked and cold stabilized at the winery, then filtered again. Alcohol content is Albariño's usual 13% abv, while the wine sells for less than $20.
This Spanish wine has a medium-pale golden hue in the glass. The nose is more fruity than floral, with apricots and citrus in the forefront. A salinity hovers over the fruit, giving the aromas a nice savory angle. That savory side shows up for real on the palate, with a racy acidity to go along with it. Pair this with shellfish and enjoy.
