Idilico 2016 Albariño, Yakima Valley, $15

By on March 18, 2018

Best Buy! The sister label to Javier Alfonso’s Pomum Cellars is dedicated to Spanish varieties, and he used Albariño as the white launch to the program he hopes will soon be joined by Verdejo and Virua. Here, he works with Dutchman Vineyard near the Rattlesnake Hills, established by the den Hoed family, and the 30 tons from 6 acres shows delicious amount of scale. Aromas of lemon, lime and tangerine bring along a hint of candy corn. Long and mouthwatering spritely acidity continues to push that tangerine theme, backed by Golden Delicious apple and prickly pear.
