ANTHONY ROSE presents his own take on a summer A-Z of wine and starts off with Albario. 'Rioja might not agree and Catalonia might object, but only the most parochial would challenge Albario's claim to the Spanish white wine crown.' And if anyone is in doubt, he suggests they try a bottle of 2005 Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Albario (5.99). Somewhere in the middle, Grner Veltliner gets a look in, with the 'outstanding' 2005 Gobelsburger Grner Veltliner Kamptal, Austria (6.49; Waitrose). And bringing up the rear is 2005 Casillero del Diablo Viognier, Chile (5.99; Morrisons), 'which displays the full-on, peachy fruitiness of the grape'.
