Don Olegario Albarino 2007
We differed on this Galician white from the Rios Baixas. Unlike most wines from this region, it's aged for eight months in steel barrels, which produces a somewhat musty, yeasty character. While both of us appreciated the up front citrus and pineapple elements, my CDC thought she detected an underlying sweetness, while I thought it might be slightly over the hill. This might or might not be the case, but if you snag a good bottle at the sale price of $8.99, it's a real bargain.
