Albariño

A clean, crisp, dry white wine often referred to as the Riesling of Spain.

Taste

On the nose, we've captured the intense aromas of passion fruit, ripe citrus, honey and peaches. In the mouth it is well balanced with a fresh acidity that makes Albariño such a versatile food wine.

Food Pairings

Try this wine chilled with fresh, grilled fish or other seafood dishes, especially shellfish. The perfect complement with spicy Asian and Indian food. Or, savor it by the glass with olives and mild cheese such as Manchego, goat or triple cream Brie.

Viticulture Notes

Albariño is one of the top growing varietals of Spain, but there are only a few acres grown of it in California. The Clarksburg appellation is ideal for producing it, mainly due to its climate and soils, both of which are similar to Galicia, the Albariño growing region of Spain. Our vineyards enjoy hot, summer days from the Sacramento Valley, which allow the intense aroma of the Albariño to develop. But they are also exposed to the cool maritime breezes from the bay and the evenings giving the grapes a vibrant acidity, which is what Albariño is so well known for.

Winemaking Notes

Grapes were hand picked in the morning and gently pressed. Juice was cold settled and fermented cold in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged on light lees and kept cold for five months. The wine was then finished for bottling, never seeing any oak or malo-lactic.
