Burgans Rias Baixas Albarino
Emanating from the picturesque landscapes of Rias Baixas in Galicia, Spain, the 2021 Burgans Rias Baixas Albariño is a shining representation of the region's renowned maritime-influenced terroirs. Dedicated to creating wines that exude the uniqueness of their origins, Burgans presents a wine that beautifully captures the vibrant essence of the Albariño grape. Grown under the gentle caress of the Atlantic breeze and the nurturing Spanish sun, this Albariño speaks volumes of its birthplace. Its character is deeply rooted in the mineral-rich soils of Rias Baixas, promising a sensory journey of refreshing elegance and complexity.
Nose: The aromatic profile bursts forth with alluring notes of fresh citrus, particularly lemon and lime, accompanied by undertones of ripe peach and a hint of tropical fruits. Delicate floral aromas, reminiscent of white blossoms, intertwine with a subtle salinity, nodding to the wine's coastal heritage.
Palate: Crisp and invigorating, the wine graces the palate with a delightful dance of tangy citrus and stone fruits. Layers of apricot, green apple, and a touch of pineapple emerge, harmoniously balanced by the characteristic saline minerality of Rias Baixas. The wine's acidity is lively, ensuring a refreshing and vibrant sipping experience.
Finish: Gracefully prolonged, the finish leaves an endearing trace of fruitiness, complemented by a zesty tang and a mineral whisper, echoing the sentiments of its maritime origin.
The maritime soul of the 2021 Burgans Albariño naturally calls out for seafood. Consider pairing it with succulent prawns, zesty lime and coriander ceviche, or even a classic Spanish paella. Its vivacious nature also complements fresh salads, goat cheese, and dishes with a hint of citrus or herbaceous flair.
