About

94

Beautifully fresh pears and apple-biscuit with hints of fresh praline. The palate has plenty of crunchy, zesty lemon and green-apple flavor with fresh and enlivened, dry cut at the finish. Drink now.

92 Wine Spectator

“This vibrant white is powerful and expressive. Exotic pineapple, lychee and lime blossom flavors fill the palate. Ripe and sweet, but balanced by tangy acidity. The volume is turned way up here, but the wine remains harmonious. Drink now through 2024”

Product Description:

100% of the wine is fermented in first, second, and third use French oak Burgundian puncheons (500L) and demi-muids (600L). The wine is aged sur lie for 10 months before bottling. The goal is to produce a serious wine – not a commercial one. Sur lie ageing adds an ageability, seriousness, and structure to the profile of the wine. The use of oak is not to impart any flavor, but to provide the perfect vessel for sur lie ageing. Slight micro-oxygenation through the barrels prevents the risk of reduction that a winemaker runs with stainless steel sur lie ageing. A very Burgundian style of Albariño. - Winemakers Notes
