DRINK OF THE WEEK
19th August 2019
Abellio Albarino Rias Baixas
Lidl 5.99
Drinker Rating 90

Rias Baixas is sometimes overlooked, it lacks the glamour of many of Spain, or indeed Europes better know wine making regions. Stuck out into the atlantic on Spain's western coast north of Vigo it benefits from long hot summers and the moderating influence of the ocean. Consequently the wines show real poise and depth.

This lovely white made with albarino grapes is blessed with a wonderful lime zest and orange blossom nose, it's pretty simple but very attractive and really well priced.

Perfect to tide us over until pay day.

Cheers!
