With 13% alcohol, the 2012 Condes de Albarei Albarino from the Rias Baixas region of Spain scored 16 points on the Dionysian scale and cost under $15.
I usually drink Albarino wines young, but at seven years old, it’s at peak. It has citrus notes over mineral. It is refreshing and easy to drink. It was deeper gold in color than new releases. People who like Sauvignon Blancs always enjoy Albarino wines. Try this one. In Vino Veritas.
