Tasting Notes

Our third vintage of this direct import Albariño, this wine shows everything we like in the grape: hints of lemongrass, lively stone fruit, and a brisk, saline-tinged palate. Located in the sub-zone of Condado do Tea, where the days are a bit warmer and evenings are slightly cooler, there is a wonderful mid-palate presence to complement the typically lean and mineral qualities of Albariño. A classic with any shellfish, especially Dungeness crab!

    My only problem in life, or at least this time of year is that I don't drink enough albarino... or white wine in general, but I really like albarino, and this was definitely a good one to start for this year. Peachy and tropical on the palate, it's surprisingly not extremely acidic, and it's a little more weighty, and I think that's why I enjoyed it. It's different from what I'm used to. Should pair super well with clam chowder.
