Jones Is Thirsty: Lícia, Albariño, Spain 2010

Heading into the 4th of July weekend, I can't help but think about all the good stuff that'll be coming off the grill.  With all the heat, humidity, and multi-rounds of bocce ball, I like to stay match-fit with a crisp, refreshing white like Albariño.

Don't let the Sauvignon Blanc-style bottle fool you.  These food-loving wines from the northwest corner of Spain are bursting with tropical fruit aromas and girded with surprising heft—plenty of body to stand up to, say, grilled shrimp burgers with a zesty tartar sauce or spicy glazed shrimp.  (In case you can't tell, I have a thing for shrimp.)

Today's featured wine is Lícia, Albariño from Rías Baixas (in Galicia) - it retails for about $16.
