2004 Albariño Pedralonga

Elegant and focused, the 2004 Pedralonga from the Spanish Basque country shows the character and depth old, terrace-grown vines can bring to Albariño. This vintage exhibits a chiseled minerality that's thrilling, making it one of the best Albariños I've ever tasted.

Pop open a bottle to enjoy with raw oysters and clams, peel 'n' eat shrimp or a fragrant seafood paella. It's a wonderfully versatile warm-season wine that can hold its own against all kinds of seafood.
