Winemaker Notes

*Library Selection*

Albariño is a delicate Spanish white grape that grows very well in our estate vineyards. It produces an assertive, dry wine characterized by beautiful floral aromas and flavors of apple and pear with notes of citrus. This crisp, flavorful wine finishes with a refreshing acidity that's perfect with seafood and Spanish tapas. 

Only a few bottles remain.

92 points & Editors’ Choice, Wine Enthusiast 
"This is an over-the-top vintage for this wine; it's simply crammed full with floral and fresh fruit flavors. Grapefruit, peach and melon notes are in abundance, all juicy, ripe and resonant. It would be hard to imagine a better or more versatile non-Chardonnay white at this price." - Paul Gregutt
