100% jespersen ranch, edna valley
We grow Albarino at Jespersen Ranch, our cool climate vineyard nestled into a hillside near the Pacific Ocean. This white grape varietal is not often seen but we are proud to farm a few acres that produce an aromatically stunning and crisp wine. We picked this fruit in two passes about two weeks apart: the first pick gave us grapes ripe with green & grassy notes while the second pick had fruitness & more phenolic development.
The aromatics on this wine are a symphony of fresh fruit & mineral notes. 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 - the perfect summer sipper!
