 Where to Buy

2013 Rías Baixas Albariño (Best Buy) With a clarity in its aromas and flavors, this albariño moves from apples and limes to herbs and spices. The acidity is potent enough to cut through a seafood gratin, carrying notes of melon and peach. A delightful albariño to drink now, this will only improve with time in bottle. —Patricio Tapia
