Bodegas Granbazan, Rias Baixas DO (Galicia, Spain) Albariño “Etiqueta Ambar” 2020

($23):  Riás Baixas, a small area tucked away in Galicia in north western Spain, can make cutting white wines, like this one, from the Albariño grape.  Grandbazan’s 2020 delivers a hint of grapefruit rind pithiness and good depth.  Not a pre-dinner sipping wine because it might take the enamel off your teeth.  Typically, it is a wine for the summer, because of it edginess refreshing character.   But frankly, it goes equally well at this time of the year with tomato-based seafood dishes because of both its acidity and body.
