2016 Palacio de Fefiñanes Albariño - Spain’s very best white wines - THE GUARDIAN

the guardian logo th"Most examples of the Galician white grape variety albariño available in the UK are not bad at all. They do their slightly apricotty, fresh thing, matching very well with seafood or cleansing a tired post-work brain with minimal fuss. They’re a reliable under-a-tenner alternative to sauvignon blanc when the gooseberry greenness of that grape variety seems a bit too much. Fefiñanes has always been better than that, however, and the latest vintage (available this week) from the first producer to bottle the variety solo in the 1920s is simply superb. Pristine, fleshy ripe pear, apple and white peach, and a wave of salty freshness that can’t help but make you think of seaspray. One of Spain’s very best white wines."
