For a 2010, this is holding form. It smells mature but fresh, with plenty of sea influence and white fruit aromas. It feels nice, lifted and lively, with lemon, citrus and green apple flavors. A pinch of pithy bitterness infiltrates the finish, but overall this is a fine Albariño to drink very soon.
