2021 Brecon True Acacia Head

Behold, a truly new world Albariño. The uniqueness of fermenting this wine in Acacia brings elegant white peach, nectarine, and citrusy nuances alongside the nicely-balanced structure. Rich, luscious, mouthwatering with aromatics reminiscent of the perfect spring day. Our winemaker suggests enjoying this wine while frolicking through apple blossom orchards. However, this wine is for all seasons–let it be your good company this summer and beyond.

Production notes

Robinia Pseudoacacia (European Acacia or Black Locust) has been used in France for many generations on varietals such as Viognier or Sauvignon Blanc. In 2015 Brecon saw a natural affinity between these varietals and our cool coastal Albariño’s. What actually started as a winemaker's simple curiosity (a couple of Acacia Head barrels locked up under the stairs, à la Harry Potter) morphed into this exciting new wine style. P.S. It’s technically a false Acacia originating in the South Eastern USA.

Our winemaker has dragged his feet for years in hopes of finding the perfect grape selection to make a little more of this Albariño. This vintage, he found the perfect combination that takes this wine to the next level. Of course, we continue to source from our tried and true, which has the oldest planting of Albariño in the Central Coast. We’ve included fruit from SLO Coastal vineyards this vintage that adds a complexing green apple component.
