La Osa Trasto Blanco 2018, LeonRegular price $24.00
A very rare grape from the North West of Spain, and native to only Castilla Leon. Albarín, not to be confused with Albarino, makes wines that are pale lemon with green tones in the glass. On the nose they are pronounced with white fruit aromas & subtle floral notes. Dry, medium-bodied with some silky texture and delightful aciditiy. The grapes are hand harvested from vines planted in clay soils at an altitude of 700m. Destemmed & fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures before being aged 4 months in French oak. Something akin to an Italian white wine, in that is is an elegant wine to have with dinner that isn't very fruity and is very versatile. Would be great with buckwheat vermicelli noodles topped with marinated raw skatefish in a spicy sauce.
