Albariño Burgans - Weekend Wine Review

Albariño Burgans



Our favorite Albariño has always been Nora but we aren’t finding it in local liquor or wine shops these days. A kindly employee, who is also a fan of Albariño, suggested we try this Albariño Burgans. It’s Spanish but the label always makes me think of Ireland…and I am pretty darn sure a great wine doesn’t originate from Éire. The terroir just isn’t conducive for grapes.

Albariño Burgans gets its name from the Burgans hills in N.W. Spain. It’s tropical, traces of lemon and zest and has a very nice texture. It went so very well with crab cakes.

12.5% alcohol and doesn’t break the budget with a price if $13.99. Highly recommended.
