2007 Zarate Albarino

$22-$23 Retail

Although the Albarino grape has grown for centuries on the steep, craggy slopes of northwestern Spain, it wasn't until modern winemaking techniques came to the region in the 1990s that the varietal truly blossomed. Grapes for this bottling were sourced from 11 vineyards averaging 35 years of age. A terrific value, this bright and balanced Albarino offers enticing aromatics, a pleasing minerality, faint kiwi and ginger scents and clean, fresh flavors of citrus and stone fruit. Drink it as an aperitif or with seafood, light stews, soft cheeses and fruit. Buy it at: Swirl. Drink it at: Herbsaint, Lilette, Vega Tapas Cafe and Coquette.
