Aldi Exquisite Collection: Albariño Rias Baixas.

I don't drink a lot of white wine, although I tend to when I'm in warmer climates. As I'm working my way through the Aldi Exquisite Wine Collection I thought I'd give this new one a go. It's from Galicia in Spain, but can also be found in Portugal as Alvarinho. It's fresh, clean, dry and light. Slightly citrus, but not overly so, extremely drinkable and recommended to go with sea food. I really enjoyed it on it's own though.
Interestingly I noticed similar wines in other supermarkets priced at about double what Aldi have this at. So yet another quality bargain, I'm still yet to find a bad one in this collection. I'll keep trying though...

 Price: £5.99, 75cl
Grapes: Albariño

Closure: Screwcap.
ABV: 12.5% 
Scores on the doors: 8/10.

  1. Just stocked up on a couple of dozen bottles of this after trying one last week. It's a reasonable Albarino at a fantastic price. Perfect for barbecues and great with seafood. I think the wine reviewers are keeping this one to themselves. Sssshhhhh!
