100% Jespersen Ranch
Over the years we have taken many different directions with our Albarino, but this year is one of our winemaking team’s favorite expressions yet. We put some of the wine through Malolactic fermentation to bring a subtle creaminess to the palate. The aromatics on this wine are a symphony of fresh fruit & mineral notes and aromas of pear, white nectarine & crisp peach intermingle and are unified by a bright minerality & freshly cut green grass. The palate has a comfortable roundness up front and is swept away by a kiwi-laced acidity on the finish. Download tech sheet »

"It's always a treat to sit with Patrick Muran at Niner and taste through new and upcoming releases, and I'm happy to report that things continue to improve on all fronts, which is no easy feat with the bar where it is already. Bright peach, floral and spice aromas translate well on the palate, and the creamy feel softens the acidity slightly, but not so much that you don't get the mouthwatering pop you expect from the variety, and no butter getting in the way. The finish blossoms with grilled peach thanks to a (very) little oak aging."
