Pale in color with a crisp minerally nose along with a hint of petrol. On the mid palate there is slight honeysuckle note (very faint but there) along with some nice crisp citrus notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some crisp lively acidity. A nice dry food friendly Albariño. I would give it an 88 or so.

Maetierra Atlantis Albariño 2015 — VINTAGES#: 452078
STYLE – Light & Crisp
Beautiful nose with aromas of peaches, pear, grapefruit, honeydew melon, bananas, almonds, mineral and white flowers. Tangy and fresh, with bright citrus and tropical tones, and a saline note to the minerality. Enjoy this long, mouth-watering wine with fresh shellfish, calamari or summer salads, or wait a year or two and follow its development. (VINTAGES panel, June 2016) $16.95
