We farm Albariño at Jespersen Ranch. The vineyard is located in the north-western corner of the Edna Valley AVA just four miles from the ocean. Our three acres of vines thrive in the coastal environment and derive their character from the rolling banks of coastal fog in the morning and ocean breezes in the afternoon.
After an early morning hand-harvest on September 16th, we lightly pressed our Albariño grapes. We fermented 80% of the wine in stainless steel tanks, and 20% in a concrete tank. The wine was then aged in the same vessels. The result is a delightfully fresh and dry wine. White nectarine, lime and citrus floral aromatics with a saline acidity are all reminiscent of the site’s coastal influence.
