Winemaker's Notes

This year's Albarino recalls its predecessors: floral scents of citrus blossom, early pear, and lychee fruit jump from the glass. High natural acidity accentuates the intense, lively mineral quality that is its hallmark. Chefs often notice that this minerality makes it among the very best wines to pair with food (seafood, yes, but also anything rich or spicy, foie gras to jambalaya). And while it opens with an elegant, even austere profile, its focused and persistent back-palate fruit lingers hauntingly. At only 12.5% alcohol, this wine stays refreshing, allowing you to continue enjoying it through the bottle.

I love this wine - it's fresh & floral and everything an albarino should be, but with a California twist. Havens was one of the first to plant the grape here in CA. It's refreshing acidity is backed by delicious stone fruits and an almost creamy texture on the finish.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
