I sauteed some nice fat Carolina shrimp, heads on, peels on, with a little olive oil, a touch of water, and whole peppercorns. Opened a bottle of albarino, headed and peeled the shrimp and sipped on the wine. Man, it was delicious. Simplicity at its best!

I really love pairing Albarinos with a variety of seafoods. It just seems like the Spanish built the wine for shellfish and lighter, white fishes.

Some affordable favorites:

Do Ferreiro

Martin Codax

Bodegas Muriel

Valminor

I've heard of Albarino being made in Washington State and the Central Coast of California but have yet to try one.

I'd second that Do Ferreiro as a great Wine to drink with seafood. 

Also try (practically any) Western Australian Semillon Sauvignon Blancs, it has an earthy (in a good way) taste to it which pairs well with fresh seafood.
