Appellation: Temecula Valley
Residual Sugar: 0.2%
Composition: 86% La Cresta Albarino, 14% Lodi Albarino
Our 2022 Albarino has aromas of Honeysuckle, and Jasmine, with Green Apple and Nactarine on the palate, and Bright Acidity on the finish.
This Iberian variety is very well suited for our Mediterranean climate, which makes it an obvious choice for us to utilize. Albarino tends to get richly honeyed if over ripe, so we harvest ours a little earlier. We also blended in some crisp Pinot Grigio to further lighten the wine. While the floral, honey notes are still present and appreciated, they are balanced nicely with grassy, herbal notes, and a light, crisp finish.
Food Pairing Ideas:
Grilled Salmon, cioppino, or light salads with chicken breast
