2016 Albariño

2016 Albariño
2016 Albariño

The 2015 harvest was warmest on record for our Albariño, allowing us to craft a ripe and well-structured wine. Aromas of green apple, pear and honeydew melon harmonize with classic varietal characteristics of orange, honeysuckle, lilac, and spring rains. In the mouth, the wine boasts a medium body and moderate acidity. The finish is marked by the slightest touch of residual sugar, providing important balance to this refreshing vintage of Albariño.

Tasting notes

The 2016 Columbia Valley Albariño brings together two vineyard sites, resulting in a blissfully aromatic wine with a supple and balanced backbone.  A nose of lemon peel and grapefruit is matched with banana, honeysuckle, and green apple.   The middle is medium in weight, with a crisp acidity that is balanced by a slight amount of residual sugar (0.3%). Drink now for the fruity, floral, and fresh aspects of Albariño, or store in a dark cellar (up to 5 years) to experience the unique, mineral-laden qualities of this Iberian varietal.
