grape: Albariño (today’s Albariño Day!)
producer: Pazo de Señorans
region: Rías Baixas. It’s a region in Galicia in northwestern Spain, right on the Atlantic Ocean. It’s really lush and green, hence the nickname “Green Spain.”
yum factors: Many Albarino’s are just really light and crispy, but this one has a tad more complexity. The lemon and green apple flavors are balanced out by a touch of saline. Crack some open with Pulpo a la Gallega (Galician octopus, made with paprika, rock salt and olive oil) and it’s like you’re in Spain!
