Rias Baixas Albarino: panel tasting results
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%
Stockists: Hayward Bros.
