Albarino is a wonderful grape that seems to be just making inroads into the American market right now. I started seeing it turn up on shelves in the past two years and occasionally on some wine lists. It has a semi-effervescence and a minerally taste with just slight citrus that kind of reminds you of Hoegaarden beer with a lemon in it.

It's nice for food that is lightly spiced to just raw veggies. It would be nice with a seafood salad as well. However, this is not a wine with a lot of flavor, but something more serene and settling. The slight effervescence on your tongue is definitely a good aspect to it.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
