2022 Albariño - New Release
Albariño is a grape variety most often grown and produced in Spain and Portugal.
NOSE: Dry in style this Albariño is bursting with aromas of lemon and grapefruit.
PALATE: An explosion of citrus fills your palate. The mouthfeel is full with a medium finish. The crisp balanced acid makes this wine enjoyable to consume with or without food.
This wine has aromas of apricot, orange blossom, lemon, and green apple. It is crisp and refreshing with excellent minerality and an aromatic finish.

The vineyard site where the Albariño is grown had been prepped for this variety for 4 years and was in an ideal state to grow a high quality crop.
This was a pleasant surprise due to the fact that it produced fruit in its second leaf. We usually don't produce wine until the third year, however, this fruit justified farming it to produce a vintage.
Food Pairing Notes
Albariño pairs exceptionally well with white fish and meats as well as leafy green herbs. You can also try it with fish tacos. If you are looking for a meat Pairing, lean toward lighter meats, fish, and seafood. Try it with ceviche, seafood risotto, grilled (or fried) fish tacos, oysters, mussels, and clams.
We are excited about this variety and its potential to thrive and consistently produce an expressive aromatic white in our cool climate.
