Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine is a nice cheap find. Fresh from the bottom shelf, we bring you one of Trader Joe’s lowest end sparkling wines, the Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine! It’s hard to say much about a bottle that only goes for $5, but I’m going to try.
Albero themselves tell me that this wine has, “fine bubbles, fresh and fruity. Creamy and velvety on the palate, sweet acidity with tones of fruits and white flowers.” Thanks, Albero. Now if only I actually ate white flowers and knew what their tones were like, that might mean something to me. Instead, I’m going to guess that white flowers taste like nothing, because this stuff is bland as hell and barely even carbonated.
You know what? If I had not already drank all of this Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine, I would propose a scientific experiment. I could go get some of those flowers and have a taste test. That actually would be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I have no flowers, and I don’t have any Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine left. And I’m certainly not going to go out and buy another bottle.
Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine: The Verdict
Long story short, this stuff is cheap, but don’t buy Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine. There are other cheap and much tastier $5 sparkling wines at Trader Joe’s like the Schloss Biebrich Sekt. Get that instead. Life is short and cheap, sparkling wine options are plentiful. In a way, Trader Joe’s has introduced a cheap sparkling wine renaissance. In any such cultural shift, there will bit hits and there will be misses. That is just the way things go. Enjoy the time we live, especially if you love bubbly. Just don’t get a bottle of Albero Spanish Sparkling White Wine, because it is one of those misses.
