2015 Fillaboa Atlantik Albarino
Clean, crisp and crush-able. Rias Baixas has a close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The table is adorned by local, fresh seafood and crustaceans. A fresh citric white wine suits the bill for nearly every meal. Some may find Albarino a smidgen similar to Sauvignon Blanc in body, freshness and citrus flavour but without any herbal notes.
Atlantik is radiant with fresh pineapple, green apple and whiffs of light flowers. It is long, fruit driven, light on its feet and racy. Perfectly sip-able as an aperitif, social wine or in nice weather and even better paired with any dish you would consider squeezing lemon onto. Its soul mate however is seafood. Perfect with near any seafood dish.
No need for cellaring, this gem is splendid as is. Get out of your wine rut and explore the wonderful world of Rias Baixas and Albarino.
