For those of you not brushed up on the wines from Spain, Albarino from Rias Baixas is one of this country’s most fashionable white wines. As a consequence it is also generally not cheap, which makes this particular version worth hunting down. Pale golden in colour, it delivers everything you want from young Albarino – concentrated and complex exotic nectarine and floral fruits with a delightful saline tang. It’s then more savoury in the mouth with pithy fruits driven hard by biting acidity – acid freaks will love it – which support a youthful finish. Crack it open with a mixed seafood platter.
