Leira Albariño 2013

I last reviewed the 2010 vintage of this wine and enjoyed it. Pale in color with a slightly crisp, slightly sweet nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some crisp citrus notes along with a hint of sugar. On the medium length finish the wine displays a hint of honeysuckle (think Riesling). But just a hint. It’s a reasonably food friendly wine. 88-89. A nice Alvarinho. I did notice the wine was sweeter when served cold and got crisper and more complex as it warmed up.

From the LCBO web site:
Leira Albariño 2013 Alvarinho/Albariño — VINTAGES#: 115816
STYLE – Light & Crisp
Bright, juicy, and fresh with vivacious aromas of spring meadow, apple orchard, and fresh hay, plus flavours of apple, white peach, and citrus. A good choice for herbed chicken breast or seafood. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2014)
