Albarino is quickly becoming the hot new white grape so better get with it! It’s a natural follow-up to Sauvignon or Pinot Grigio as it feels a bit like a blend of both. The one below is big on refreshment, and low on flavour – perfect for warm weather gulping. The down side of Albarino (Alvarino in Portugal) is the price tag – offerings through LCBO Vintages usually cost $18. Lolo is a Coop wine hence the lower price. While it’s nothing special, it will put you in the game – and the colourful label should carry the day.
