Robert Parker Jr – the Wine Avocado

Over the last year or two I have sometimes been quite outspoken regarding certain types of tasting, questionable competitions and even the odd wine critic. Well, now is the time to retract everything…… We have just been awarded 90 points by possibly the most famous of them all!!!

Jay Miller, the Spanish wine reviewer for the Wine Advocate, has kindly made the following comment about our Albariño:

90 Points – 2006 Albarino Rias Baixas, Galicia
This Albarino is produced by Bodegas Castro Martin. Approximately 20% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. Medium straw-colored with a green tint, the nose offers up notes of minerality, peach, jasmine, citrus, and a hint of tropical fruits in the background. Crisp, lingering, and refreshing on the palate, this lively effort would pair well with flaky fish courses.

So, 2008 has been quite a year for reviews so far – Best value producer in Spain from Tom Stevenson, ‘Star Buy’ in The Times from Jane MacQuitty, and now 90 points in the Wine Advocate. We must be doing something right!
