Wine Review: This straw colored Albarino opens with a mild grapefruit and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused mild grapefruit and green apple blend with hints of beer, Bosc pear and quince. I also detected hints of white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. I would serve this wine slightly chilled with a grilled weisswurst at a summer picnic. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A full-bodied, serious, dry Albarino similar to its sibling Morgadío incorporating wines made from the first pressing in a comparatively softer and more floral style.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
