2011 three Albariño Sweetwater Ranch, Monterey County
Albariño is the
primary grape used to make dry white wine in the Rias Baixes (Lower
Inlets) section of the Galicia region of Northwestern Spain. Considered
by many to be Spain's premier quality white wine gape.
Albariño is also known in Portugal as Alvarinho.
This variety is a relative newcomer to California vineyards.
Our Albariño is sourced from the Sweetwater Ranch located in the rolling hills east of King City in Monterey County. In 2011, this wine was harvested at 24° brix resulting in an off-dry style wine with a modest alcohol level. This wine has great aromatics, plenty of luscious flavors and ends with a crisp finish. There is a mineral component on the palate that mingles with refreshing pineapple and honeyed flavors of apple and citrus.
