Albariño wines from the north-west of Spain are on a hot streak right now as people look for something else – but close to the ‘same’, as in their beloved Pinot Grigio. What you get with Albariño is a straightforward dry white – less glam than Chardonnay, less weird than Sauvignon, but more characterful than Pinot Grigio. Think Pinot Grigio from a seaside location – bright ‘n breezy, with a squirt of lemon. I love the sports car zip in this example. I’d take a case to the cottage – if I had one. But I’ll be putting a few bottles in my patio bar fridge.
