2019 Brecon Albarino (Two bottles max)

Central Coast

This is the vineyard that started Brecon on its wildly successful Albarino ride. Yet in 2019 we made less than any previous vintage, go figure. Less is more I suppose. Aromatic as ever, it veritably jumps from the glass with hints of Sauvignon Blanc and Lily blossom. There is really no Savvy Blanc in there, we promise. It is varietally true, being all citreen, with crisp fresh limes dominating. So refreshing. The finish is surprisingly structured with a softness/biscuity toastiness reminiscent of a classical champagne.

Production notes

Albariño is one of the  crisper aromatic varieties. We do all we can to capture these aromatics with long slow almost icy cold ferments. Our yeast choice is vital and the light fluffy lees component is fermented/matured in barrels. This enables us to stir these lees biweekly giving a rich, toasty and biscuity, blending component that complements the mouthwatering acidity. The vineyard site  also naturally moves it more towards the US palate than expressions seen in its Portugeusie or Spanish roots.

Close enough to the ocean to catch a few waves during your lunch break. This vineyard has a somewhat unique flavor profile and has garnered much critical acclaim. One could speculate that this comes from the seemingly endless growing season and resultant hang time as the vineyard is a mere 1.8 miles from the ocean. The soils are pretty damn interesting too, high in sulphur which perhaps adds a certain richness to the palate.
