Is this going to more dry with minerality like a SB or something else? Never had an Albarino and not sure if it is something I would like, still trying to figure out my whites. So far not a big SB or Gerwurtz fan.

Albariño is like a mash-up of Sauv Blanc and Riesling, only better!

This is not a Gewurz! No way! Think a great Riesling with the kick-ass acid of a really, really good Sauv Blanc.

Please explain, this will decide my fate. I like Riesling, but not a fan of most SB.

Any RS or is this dry?

I was confused about the discussion during the previous woot, I saw references initially to French oak and then to a period of use of seasoned American oak.

I ask because my wife is both a big fan of Riesling and especially SB but *hates* oak.

Something I have never been clear on: Our wines on Woot Offs ones that have previously been offered and there are only small remainders of? Or are they simply items that do not have enough inventory to allow for a full day of sales? Both>

Both. I would say mostly the later though. You do see a lot of repeat offers from previous woots, but many times it is simply because the winery has offered an additional, smaller, lot of wine after the original allotment.

Most of the Albarinos I've had are dry/off-dry but fruit-forward which gives the impression of a touch of sweetness. I don't remember where I saw this quote but someone once said "Most Sauvignon Blancs wish they could be Albarinos".

I just read that in the previous offering post. I believe Miguel from the winery posted it.

I know my wife would like this, as she likes anything that is white, but if this is more on the Riesling end of the perspective than the SB end, I am in.

Got me some too. Always nice to hear from the maker--especially during a woot!off. This sounds like a wonderful summer time cooler! That's two purchases (so far) today. Eeek.

The one common tasting note I can share from all the Albarinos I've tried (admittedly not many, probably 4-5 different ones) is the green apple. If you like that flavor component, then you should enjoy this.

If you don't want to splurge on 4 bottles just to try it out, you can probably find some Paco y Lola Albarino at your local grocery store/wine shop for around the same price per bottle. If you go that route, see if you can find a bottle of Torrontes to try as well, you might like that even better.

In for a pack. Albariño is a great wine! All of my experience is with the Spanish exports. Am very interested in seeing how the California variety compares/varies.

With the summer months coming up I am tempted. When you say Reisling, are you talking a dry reisling or a sweet one? I am a big fan of chilled SB when it's warm out but I just cannot seem to do sweet. Thanks!

So, the Albarino grape is apparently getting some real love over the past few years. In for one!

EDIT: And that link to Food & Wine magazine does give some food pairing suggestions, for those who did wind up buying. :-)
