Pazo Cilleiro Albariño has a lively golden yellow color, with green reflections. It is clean and balanced, with citric fruits and white fruit notes, with small white flower aromas. The taste mimics the nose – it is fresh, round and elegant on the palate, with a persistent, refreshing finish
You can probably tell by how often I’ve been featuring them, but these warm sunny days have really put me in the mood for good Albariño lately. In fact, this is the 3rd Albarino that I’ve featured in the past month!
On the nose, fresh peach, lemon, white flowers, and a hint of pineapple lift easily from the glass. On the palate, just-picked pink grapefruit, lime pith, white peach, vibrant minerality, and white flower blossoms create energetic layers of flavor that finish with a nice dose of salinity and just a dusting of white pepper
I enjoyed this bottle with family and a cheese plate. It was good with sharp white cheddar. It was AMAZING with aged Gruyere
