Albarino, Terra Firme
18 of 26

Vinum Terrae, Terra Firme, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2010, Spain    
Ferran Centelles: The wine just seems too oaky. It needs time to mellow the oak but it is in a real difficult consumption moment.    14.5    
John Radford: Lovely mature wood-oil old-vines aromas. Clean, crisp, 'crunchy-fruit' mid and a long, well-structured finish. 17    
Sarah Jane Evans MW: Subtly floral and grassy aromas. Rich, supple impression in the mouth, which develops to a broad mineral palate.  The flavours are complex, from smoky minerality to citron peel and fresh herbs, and persistent. The acidity remains lively. 17.5    Alc: 13.5%    
Drink: 2012-2014
