Albariño certainly seems to be popular at the moment. I'm not sure how its selling, but there are at least 8 very good wines available in Australia now, not bad for a white wine from Spain. Condes de Albarei is a fairly old co-op of 400 growers with 170 hectares of Albariño in the Salnes Valley, from which they knock out 1.5 million bottles of Albarino a year.
It falls into the glass with a pale straw colour and shows off its aromatics very well. Lots of floral notes of white peach, apple juice and a slight lemon juice wiff. Crisp and tangy, but lightly oily at the sames. Well balanced and full of flavour too : white peach and melon, a bit of minerally acid and lemon. Great summer drinking. 88 Pts.
