    Winemaker's Notes:

    The name "Licia" is a shortening of the word Galicia, the name of the region in northwest Spain, from where this wine originates. Sourced from the southern most vineyards of the Condado de Tea and O Rosal subzones in Rías Baixas. Licia shows good structure and finesse. This 100% Albarino is fermented completely in steel to preserve the fresh character of the variety.

    Straw yellow with greenish hues, the Lícia Albariño has strong varietal characteristics with hints of citrus, such as grapefruit, candied fruit and quince jelly, along with notes of fresh herbs, green apples and minerals. It is full-bodied and well-balanced, highlighting the aromas of citrus and green apple. With a long and persistent finish, this wine pairs well with grilled fish, any kind of seafood, rice dishes, salads and vegetables.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Peach, pear and pine flavors are fresh and focused in this well-structured white. Crisp grapefruit acidity keeps it firm, and mineral and herbal notes linger. Drink now. 4,166 cases made.
