Behind the Cork™ - Wine of the Week


2016 Lusco Albariño ($25)

This 100% Albariño by Lusco is from Rias Baixas, in the Galicia region of northwestern Spain, located along the Atlantic coastline.

Imported into the U.S. by González Byass, this wine is fermented with natural yeasts produced by the grape. After its fermentation, the wine remains on lees for six months. This results in a more rounded and balanced wine.

It has great tropical flavors of pineapple and grapefruit with good acidity that is quite refreshing.

This is another nice wine to enjoy on a warm spring day or during the summertime. One sip and it will win you over!  Enjoy this one!
