Winemaker's Notes

This 100% Albarino is a truly distinctive and expressive wine coming from low-yielding vines. Through the use of partial malolactic fermentation this wine exhibits greater freshness and aromatic expression. This straw-colored wine boasts aromas of green apple, light citrus, and floral undertones. On the palate this wine is the epitome of freshness with a lightly tart expression of that same green apple and citrus. The somewhat higher acidity is cause for celebration as this wine will pair wonderfully with any number of spicy or richer foods.

Critical Acclaim

"Greenish yellow. Spicy grapefruit, lime and mineral aromas are complemented by white flowers and quinine. Refreshingly firm and bright, offering zesty citrus and green apple flavors and good back-end clarity and cut. Gains weight and power with air, finishing with a strong kick of dusty minerals and very good persistence."
