Kentia Albarino 2016
We tasted and positively loved Kentia Albariño during a terrific meeting with Felix Jimenez, the US Brand Embassador and Business Development for Gil Family Estates. Kentia is made from high elevation vineyards in the Rías Baixas region, which is famous for Albariño wines. The palm on the label is named Kentia, and these plants are planted around this region which is on the coast of northern Spain. Look for delicious aromas and flavors of sea breeze, mineral, apricot, melon and granite in a classic, authentic style. Kentia is fresh, clean and zippy, yet ripe, fruit-driven and balanced. This tastes exactly the way we like Albariño. Serve with Spanish-style seafood appetizers or on its own
Wine SpectatorLight and crisp, this fresh white offers modest flavors of apple and tangerine, with juicy acidity the most prominent component. Refreshing.
