Winemaker's Notes

My aim with Albariño is to show off its classic vibrant acidity and beautiful aromatics. This 2008 is refreshingly crisp and clean, and smells of violets, tangerine, and lime. It has tropical flavors of citrus and banana, and the subtle Albariño trademark salty characteristic. This wine has got to be the world's most compatible wine with shellfish! It is wonderful with simply prepared clams, shrimp, mussels, lobster, crab, oysters, and especially scallops.

Critical Acclaim

"A beautiful white wine notable for its extreme dryness and fresh crispness of acidity. Really cleanses the mouth, letting it appreciate the unoaked flavors of tangerine, melon, peach and minerals. A brilliant wine to drink with almost anything, but especially shellfish. "
