This aromatic wine has notes of melon, bright citrus, sandstone, and vanilla bean. Light-bodied, crisp on the palate, it is a refreshing lemon drop with beautiful acidity and a juicy, clean finish.
The Albariño is planted in three different blocks in the Coble Ranch Vineyard. The blocks vary in location throughout the vineyard with the most recent being planted in 2017 and the 2020 vintage being the first harvest. The Albariño was harvested in three picks, each of which are specifically calibrated to achieve optimal flavor profiles and fruit extraction.
The Albariño is pressed in a bladder press upon arrival at the winery, it is then racked to a tank to be cold settled. Once the juice is settled, we transfer it to a new tank where we inoculate using various yeast strains. The aging of the Albariño is a combination of stainless steel and Acacia barrels.
