Light golden yellow color. Aromas of lemon curd, brine, dried pineapple, ripe peach, and slate with a supple, racy, petillant, dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long green apple, wet stone, golden pineapple, white cranberry juice, and kiwi finish with no oak flavor. A muscular Albariño full of golden fruit and hints of seawater; perfect for a beach day.

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.
