This week, we’re off to Spain for Wine Wednesday and exploring a bottle of Albariño by Entreflores. Come along to uncover what’s behind the – arguably most beautiful-looking – bottle and decide for yourself whether it’s worth adding to your shopping cart this Wednesday.
ClickNDrink is a UK-based online alcohol retailer specialising in everything from beer to spirits to wines. Known for offering a huge range of top-name brands, as well as plenty of signature, smaller-independent labels, ClickNDrink is a great place to stock up on everything you need to build your at-home bar. While there’s a significant range of drinks available on their site, I’m focusing on their wine offering for this piece – more specifically, a stunningly beautiful bottle of Albariño. So…let’s start exploring that, shall we?
If the striking electric blue bottle was anything to go by, the Entreflores Albariño was bound to be an exciting bottle of white to try out. Let’s explore it together! What first struck me about the Entreflores Albariño was just how pale it was in the glass. There was a slight tinge of lemon but, overall, it was almost colourless. The lack of colour (although not necessarily a problem, more of a surprise!), however, was quickly overpowered by its aromas. This bottle greets you with crisp green fruits, sharp citrus (gooseberry, lemon) and a slight buttery undertone.
Moving onto the flavours, the citrus scents of the Albariño were what stood out to me most on the palate. This acidic and tangy bottle was full of fresh citrus, yet – at no point – felt too sharp or acidic. It’s well-balanced and, thanks to its medium body, felt well-rounded in the mouth. The finish is medium, with the citrus being the last flavour to linger. If you’re searching for a white wine that balances tang with a soft touch, this is it.
Pair your Albariño with some tunes
