Altos De Torona O Rosal 2015 mini review

This is one of the wines of the world program’s offerings. Slightly golden in color with a nice crisp dry nose with some hints of citrus coming through. On the mid palate the wine spot on matches the nose with crisp dry, tart notes. On the medium length finish the citrus notes are subtle, but the minerality leaves a nice coating in the mouth that hangs around nicely. This is a lively white that would hold up well to spicy food. On the spec sheet for the wine it says 2.2 g/l and I can totally believe it. I would give this an 88+. A lovely expression of how bold an Albariño can be! Yumm … The wine is respresented in Ontario by AMV Whiz trading

Altos De Torona O Rosal 2015 — LCBO#: 262997
A high-level wine with mystic echoes. Distinctive character as a result of our varieties (Albariño, Loureiro and Caiño). Complex aromatic nuances, where fresh and mature fruits converge. High-intensity, with hints of stone fruits and tropical touches of mango and passion fruit. Sweet, well structured, and with tingling vivacity, well balanced on the palate. Long persistent aftertaste while respecting the aromas and flavours of the varieties. Ideal with shellfish, sushi and spicy foods. $25.95
