The 2020 CRŪ Albariño is a lovely example of how aging in stainless steel brings out the true essence of this wine. The fermentation enhances the natural fresh fruit characteristics found in Albariño, intensifying the zingy flavors of grapefruit and lemon. Bright acidity is prevalent throughout and beautifully balanced with notes of mango and slate that lead to the lemon-lime finish.
Albariño is a perfect companion to seafood. Try it fresh or barbequed oysters or grilled shrimp with fresh fruit salsa.
