To my wife's Australian vernacular this might be “totally awesome, mate.” While her inevitable British convict ancestors might have uttered the more dour “it's pretty good, all things considered”. Well, we like to think our winemaker did consider all the things! Even the opalescence that shimmers on the surface of a tear that wells up in a shepherd's eye as he marvels at the beauty of yet another Patagonian sunrise. We digress. But its opalescence does shimmer, and it is marvelously refreshing, surprisingly unique, and easily describable as clean, fresh, crisp with wafts of headiness. Not unlike the Altiplano air on the Andean Plateau.

Production notes

With fruit this good we can keep the heavy hand of oak at arm's length. Albariño is one of the crisper varieties and a stainless regime really lets the refreshing citrus characters shine through. We also do all we can to capture both the Viognier and Albarino’s aromatics with long slow almost icy cold ferments. Consequently, our yeast choice is vital.

Ooooh it's so nice to finally reveal “SLO Coast” as the source of our Albarino. One vineyard being as close to the Pacific Ocean as you get viticulturaly. Think sand dunes! The coastal fogs are very much in evidence, cooling the crop and radically extending the growing season. We harvested it in November. Its blending buddies here being the ever-citrusy Paragon Albarino and La Vista Vineyards sun drenched Viognier.
