If you ever walk all 800km of the Camino de Santiago across northern Spain, you'll be pretty thirsty when you get there. A glass of the fresh local white in a quiet square no doubt has restorative powers. That wine will almost certainly be albariño, the classic white grape local to the ocean inlets of the Atlantic Ocean in Galicia. This is "green Spain", cooler and wetter than the rest of the country, with lots of local seafood and a strong Celtic tradition (they even have their own version of bagpipes!).
This wine is made with selected grapes from prime vineyard locations. It has a distinct salty minerality on the nose, and an array of pure, clean, limpid white fruit aromas. The palate almost shimmers with tang and vibrancy, and although it has a steely precision, it is balanced by fruit with a peachy, pear-like quality, and backed by a vivid streak of lemon acidity. Its absolutely delicious!
