Tasting Note from Fairley's Wines ...
The Red House La Marimorena Albarino appears pale straw with highlights of green. The nose opens with an array of aromas, from herbs to straw, to white flowers, locked in with layers of green fruit and fresh tropical fruit. The palate is fresh and lively with juicy green apple and sweet melon, underlying ripe pear, finishing round and structured with balanced acidity, white flowers and even more green fruit and citrus. An excellent white that should not be over chilled and would be best served with oysters and fresh fish.
