The grapes for our inaugural bottling of Albariño hail from our estate Huerhuero Vineyard. This grape variety is grown in Spain (Rías Baixas region, Galicia) under the name Albariño and in Portugal (Vinho Verde region) as Alvarinho. Albariño is a thick-skinned grape, which allows it to flourish in our Mediterranean climate. The grapes for this vintage were handpicked during the cool evening hours on October 13. The wine was then cold fermented for 15 days before being transferred to neutral oak barrels where it was aged for four months.
Enjoy now through 2016.
