Stay refreshed this weekend by stocking up on today’s Thirsty Thursday wine, Maria Sanzo Albariño 2016!
This delicious, dry white hails from the Rias Baixas region of Northwest Spain where Albariño isn’t just another varietal, but is a way of life! While twelve grape varieties are permitted in the region, the white Albariño grape represents over 96% of all plantings. Such focus on a single varietal results in the local winemakers perfecting their craft and producing the best Albariños that money can buy!
The Maria Sanzo Albariño 2016 is extremely aromatic with expressions of white flowers, citrus and pears. On the palate it has a bright minerality, with notes of peach, apricot and a zesty finish. It’s fresh, fruity, and has a balanced acidity that makes it disappear from your glass quickly!
