Polyvalence and enthusiasm! As is well known, the exceptions confirm the rule. This versatility is unfortunately rare but all the more pleasing. An Albariño like this one is as much fun as an aperitif as with a seafood platter. It combines supposed lightness with profundity and is as substantial as it is uncomplicated. Semi-ripe pear and Granny Smith apple provide appealing fruitiness that seems melted into some butter. Like a character actor who brings across the same conviction in comedy as in drama.
