2006 Agro de Bazan "Contrapunto", DO Rias Baixas Albarino. This wine is made from 100% Albarino. Beautiful golden colour. And the nose! What a glorious nose!! Full of honey, spice, tropical fruits, sweetness. It has an uncanny resemblance to Vidal icewine. In the mouth, it is gloriously silky with a racy acidity, and a long, spicy finish. Delicious, just absolutely delicious.
This was my first bottle of Spanish white wine, and I am in love with the region already. It just confirms all I know about Spanish red wines - that this area produces rich, interesting, complex wines. I can't wait for my next bottle!
