Tasting Notes

Winery Notes: "Citrus blossom aromatics, with lemon oil, pineapple, lemongrass, minerality, and viscosity on palate. The Albariño comes from a beautiful vineyard site in Calaveras County, owned and managed by Matthew Rorick and family. The fruit was harvested pre-dawn in mid August at 22.5 deg brix., and promptly hauled "down the hill" to the winery. Whole cluster pressed and fermented in neutral Hungarian oak barrels, there were no additions made to the wine aside from a moderate amount of sulfur dioxide to prevent oxidation. Aged 11 months on lees, and bottled on August 24th, 2016. The vines were planted in 2003 on a mixture of schist, quartz, and volcanic soils."

    This is an Albarino that is absolutely worth the money! Wilson Foreigner is a collaboration between a Napa based couple and a South African couple who strive to show case true terroir with minimal intervention. The lovely richness of this wine comes from fermenting in neutral French and Hungarian barrels, as well as full malolactic fermentation. Fresh citrus, floral and saline are expressed on the palate and finishes with a nice softness.
