2022 Albariño

2022 ALBARIÑO

TASTING NOTES
Light straw in color, with intense and fresh notes of ripe citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit, as well as subtle hints of white flowers and mineral undertones. Crisp and refreshing with high acidity, this light to medium-bodied Spanish varietal has citrus notes that continue on the palate, accompanied by a slight salinity and a pleasant bitterness that adds complexity and depth to the wine. Long and persistent finish. A well-balanced and elegant white wine that showcases the typical characteristics of the Albariño grape, this wine is perfect as an aperitif or to pair with seafood, shellfish, and other light dishes.

PRODUCTION NOTES
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.
