A slightly oily nose included aromas of dried tropical fruits and apricot, while a plump but controlled palate is standard in feel. Melon and dried mango flavors dissipate on a quiet finish. Year after year, this performs at about the same level, and there’s something to be said for that.
Straw yellow with greenish hues, the Lícia Albariño has strong varietal characteristics with hints of grapefruit, candied fruit, quince jelly, notes of fresh herbs, green apples, and minerals. It is full bodied and well balanced, highlighting the aromas of citrus and green apple, with a long and persistent finish.
This wine pairs deliciously with grilled fish—or any kind of seafood—Asian cuisines, rice dishes, salads and grilled vegetables.
