2015 Morgadio Legado del Conde Rias Baixas Albarino
Morgadío is the easternmost inland estate in D.O. Rías Baixas, located in the subdistrict of Condado do Tea. Albariño’s revelation as one of the wine world’s noble white varieties is due in large part to work done at this property from the mid ’80s to the mid ’90s.
A full-bodied, serious, dry Albariño similar to its sibling Morgadío incorporating wines made from the first pressing in a comparatively softer and more floral style.
There is no absolute right or wrong food and wine pairing, so enjoy the wine with whatever food you like. There is, however, one simple guideline: match the wine to the texture (or weight) of the food. These food-friendly wines with their intense fruit character, lively acidity, moderate alcohol and mineral overtones pair with a wide variety of foods, from their classic pairing with seafood to Asian fare or even salsa and chips. Enjoy them on their own as an apéritif, with tapas or “little plates,” or with full-course meals of veal, chicken, ham, medium-bodied cheeses, and an array of vegetable dishes.
