Albarino one of the crisper aromatic varietals. 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 Spanish Springs Vineyard has been the core of this program since inception. It's unique flavor profile has garnered a particular following and much critical acclaim. Perhaps this comes from the seemingly endless growing season and resultant hang time as the vineyard is a mere 1.8 miles from the ocean. Close enough to catch a few waves during your lunch break. The soils are pretty damn interesting too.
