Golden yellow color. Aromas of butter poached apples, caramelized fruit, nutmeg, and pickle pineapple with a round, crisp, fruity medium body and a graceful, interesting, medium-length meyer lemon, honeycomb, fresh pressed apple, and sea salt finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A buttery Albarino for California Chardonnay fans.

Albariño is a white grape grown in Portugal and Spain (Rias Baixas in north west Spain, near the border with Portugal, is a famous Albariño zone).

The wines are aromatic, aged only in steel and feature exotic aromatics of honeysuckle, peach, melon and orange blossom. Medium-bodied, the wines are dry or off-dry and have very good natural acidity. They are meant to be enjoyed young (within the first year or two after the vintage) and are ideal with shellfish (especially crayfish) and most seafood.
