Winter is generally the time for spicy Zin’s and hearty Cab’s, but when your menu is calling for WHITE, reach for this Albarino from Rias Baixas, Spain. Tonight it’s Shrimp Scampi on our menu, and this wine will be the perfect addition to the dish as well as in our glass.
This wine presents a crispy clear pear color with a vibrant green apple on the nose. A light zest on the finish makes you wanting to go back for more!
With a price of $11 and 12.5% alcohol what’s not to like!

Excellent choice for an albarino. LIke the headline too. Pairing seafood and spicy food with most albarino’s is a great idea, and shouldn’t always be confined to the summer season.
For more inspiration watch Michael Colameco’s “Albarino Harvest”, a two part series where he travels around the DO Rias BAixas Wines Region and offers up some great food ideas and entertaining dialogue.

Well, we’ve got the shrimp scampi tonight but not the wine. Looks like a great choice. We’ll try it!
