Albarino, Segrel Ambar
21 of 26

Pablo Padin, Segrel Ambar, Rias Baixas, Galicia, 2011, Spain    
Ferran Centelles: This is a rather complex style of Albariño. It needs time to breathe on the glass and probably will benefit from a decantation. Very good combination of stone fruit, lively acidity and stony finish. Classical Albariño style.  17    
John Radford: Fresh, gooseberry- fruit. Very clean, fresh, 'lateral' mid-palate but it falls away at the end, ultimately dry and rather austere. 16    
Sarah Jane Evans MW: Honeyed aromas, with notes of smoke, citrus, grass.  Palate is full and broad, with notes of cooked yellow plums, and Bramley apples. Finish is focused less on fruit than on a salty minerality.  15
