Our 2016 offers a melody of classic aromas unique to the varietal--lime zest, toasted almond, ginger, ripe apricot, and floral notes.
Flavors are bright, refreshing, and lively, and sustain the long finish. I am comfortable to call this the best vintage of Albariño we have produced as all components are in perfect harmony.
We were rewarded with another outstanding vintage in 2016. Sunshine and a warm dry spring led to mild and ideal growing conditions throughout the summer. Because of late winter rains, the vines began their growing season a little happier and less stressed than in 2015. With no weather extremes to interfere, grapes ripened slowly and evenly, resulting in beautiful concentration of flavor and aromas.
