Maior de Mendoza Albariño 2004 is from a more northerly, cooler area that typically offers an Albarino that is very focused upon tart notes. This has red apple with orange and apricot tinges, with a touch of earth and cinnamon; the mouth is red and green apple, lemony, tart, almost intense, like lemon dipped green apple slices, with pleasant length. It’s capable of handling far more dishes than one might think, because of its tangy acidity.
