    Light yellow. Citrus fruit and pear skin aromas are complicated by pungent herbs and anise. Firm and linear, offering modestly concentrated pear and orange zest flavors and a hint of white pepper. The dry finish shows a touch of bitterness and good persistence. Drinks very easily but I'm not sure that I'd have guessed this was albarino.
