Albariño has been known to produce outstanding wines in the cool, rainy climate of Galicia, in North West Spain. We first planted it in our Sonoma Coast vineyard, but that proved too cold for ripening even a cool-climate variety like this. We are very excited that it seems to be thriving in the Don Miguel Vineyard!
Intense, classic aromas of citrus, lime and white peach , with floral overtones of honeysuckle and a minerality reminiscent of wet stones. Fresh, lively and mouthfilling, with bright acidity that follows through with an elegant, crip finish. I would recommend serving it at 45Â°- 48Â° F with raw or grilled seafood (it's a classic with oysters and clams), smoked salmon, sushi and Asian cuisine â€” and for sure, with tapas!
