Wine: 2016 Lagar de Indra Albarino 

Rias Baixas, Spain

Retail $16-$19

Spain devotes more acres to viticulture than any other country and continues to develop diverse varietals and styles of wine. This albarino wine is from the renowned white wine-producing Rias Baixas D.O. (Denominacion de Origen), located in the Galicia region bordering Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean. The Lagar de Indra is a product of a fourth generation, family-owned, 135-year-old bodega. Albarino grapes dominate the area as its signature varietal, and many vines are 30 years old. Vineyards enjoy mild temperatures, and sea mist and fog keep the climate cool, which helps the fruit produce crisp acidity for the wine. After harvest, grapes were destemmed and went through cold maceration. The wine was fermented at low temperatures and matured for up to nine months in stainless steel tanks. In the glass, it offers aromas of citrus and stone fruit. On the palate, taste melon, green apple, a core of minerality and great acidity. Drink it with paella, pasta, quail, arugula, scallops, fish and all types of seafood. Buy it at: Grande Krewe and Acquistapace's. Drink it at: Irene's Cuisine, GW Fins, Baru Bistro & Tapas, Marcello's Restaurant & Wine Bar, Oak, 1000 Figs and The Broad Theater.
