ALBARIÑO 2019 - Released May 15!
Enticing with lifted floral notes on the nose followed by lemon, grapefruit and orange pith, our fifth vintage of single varietal Albariño is mostly from our home vineyard (69%) on the Naramata Bench with 31% from Gravelbourg vineyard in Oliver, balancing bright fruits and riper flavours.
The palate excites with light melon, citrus and pear juiciness. The finish lingers and refreshes with a backbone of mineral and slate. Try Gambas a la plancha or Pacific oysters and squeeze of lemon.
Albariño was picked at the opportune time to showcase the bright fruit flavours and refreshing acidity. The grapes were gently whole cluster pressed and then cool fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the aromatics.
