2014 Brecon Albarino

Central Coast

One of our signature wines, and for the first time ever, offered as a pure 100% unadulterated Albarino. These wonderfully crisp yet aromatic food wines have their homeland in the plateaus of Northern Spain where the best examples, like Brecon’s, come from within just a couple of miles of the coast.  In California, marine fogs cool the grapes resulting in a long ripening period, super intense flavors and aromatics. Tropical complexity, richness and citrine characters came naturally in 2014 no need for that hint of Viognier we have traditionally added.

Tasting notes

 

“Golden straw color. Fruity aromas of yellow apple, pear skin, honeysuckle, and orange blossom with a medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long, lemon, green apple, orange zest, and honeydew finish. Bright and refreshing acid kicks up the apple-honeydew flavors with a silky smooth roundness.”

Production notes

Complexity and citrine characters are deftly melded in, by the careful use of some Viognier (8%) from the La Vista Ranch on the now famous Adelaida road.

The single vineyard Albarino ferment is split several ways and deftly recombined just prior to bottling. Some receives neutral barrel ferment and sur lee’s aging while some receives stainless steel ferment and yet others a partial malolactic ferment.
