On behalf of CWG and I Merry Christmas or Seasons greetings to you and your family!
Albarino’s inc ase you don’t know them can be nice crisp dry wines from Spain. This particular one is golden in color with a mild nose, with some minerality coming through. On the mid palate the wine displays some mild green apple notes along with minerality to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice crisp dry acidity that builds in the mouth. I would give it an 88 or so. Very food friendly. A perfect example of an Albarino.
