Brandal 2007 Albarino

Mmm… white wine in the winter. Might seem counter-intuitive but you you’ll be surprised how a little crisp tongue tingle can revive a dull day. Albarino, a grape from a cold, rainy region in northwest Spain called Rias Baixas, delivers the energy. This Brandal version is similar to sauvignon blanc in texture, light-hearted with tart lime and grapefruit but also has toasted almond flavor that washes over the palate. Easy on the wallet too, around $11, but you’ll mostly find it served at restaurants like Wine Exchange in Hyde Park Village.
