Light straw in color, with fresh and bold aromas of white florals, white nectarines, grapefruit. Light to medium-bodied, this Spanish varietal has mouth-watering flavors of citrus, citrus blossoms with gentle minerality and stone fruit. The finish is very savory and subtly tart.
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. 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.
