Castel de Fornos Albariño

DO Rias Baixas, Spain (100% Albariño) 750 ml “Bright and clear, the color of hay with a glint of green, Castel de Fornos is a high intensity wine with a torrent of complex aromas. First come the floral hints (gardenia, rose, orange blossom) then the fruit (apricot, orange peel, honey) with a background of herbs (laurel, anise, mint). The bouquet is that of a wonderful English garden.” ~Guide to Wines, Spirits and Wineries of Galicia (2013) RECENT REVIEWS Apple, melon and a dusty scent of white pepper get this round, apple-driven Albariño going. Pineapple, lime and orange flavors are solid and finish with a note of almond skin and bitter citrus pith. Drink immediately. 87 Points. — Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast (8/1/2015) AÑ03.
