Albae Viognier 2018

The first of the Bodega Albae wine tasting at TomeVinos Barrio Salamanca. This is one of two white wines available made from 100% Viogner. The Viogner grape is known for producing perfumed wines. This is also true of the more commonly used Spanish grape variety Viura/Macabeu. So it’s a shame that Bodega Albae don’t produce a Viura so that we could do a comparison.

Never mind as the Viognier is pretty good.

It is a pale gold colour with a pronounced nose that hits you immediately with white fruit: grape, fresh pear. Also a slight herby smell and acidic notes.

it is a medium body wine with good acidity and a nice long finish. It has a citrus flavour from the acidity but the fresh conference pear is evident especially once it had been open for a while. It fills the mouth nicely but is not a heavy wine. Quite refreshing really.
