Willamette Valley, Oregon
Bottled: May 2017
Adopted from a hillside cooled by maritime winds and a long rainy season in Spain and planted in another such climate in the coolest parts of the Willamette Valley, we believe this wine presents a compelling case for a new home for Albariño. The 2017 Albariño opens with fresh and vibrant aromatics of Meyer lemon and wildflower honey. On the palate, acid-driven flavors of lemon pastille and Asian pear complement layers of minerality and sur lie creaminess. The wine finishes with nerve and great energy.
