About the Wine

100% Albariño.  Gently whole cluster pressed and barrelled down to neutral barrels. The wine ferments spontaneously with native yeasts and no temperature manipulation. Malolactic is completed and the wine spends 8 months on primary lees with no stirring. Bottled in April 2015 and released October 2015.

 

What Ferdinand Wines Say

Light gold color; balanced and attractively fragrant; a savory and floral wine with orange peel and lime zest, lemongrass, quince and grapefruit aromas and flavors. Lees aging in neutral oak gives the wine finesse, sophistication, and a hint of nuttiness - a pleasing complement to the variety's balance of natural acidity, slight bitterness, and salty finish.

 

What we Say

Probably the best Albariño coming out of California in this price bracket.  Treads the perfect line between the zesty citric fruits and the lean minerality.  One of our favourite white wines! 

 

About the Producer

I practice simple, traditional winemaking.  The wines are not inoculated, acidified, nutrified, watered back, and where possible bottled without filtration. The Albariño is gently whole cluster pressed, fermented in old 225l barriques and spends six months on primary lees. Tempranillo is destemmed, in maceration for three weeks, pressed after dryness and ages for 18 months in 10% new French barrels.  I measure my success as a winemaker by wines that are delicious, enjoyable at table, and affordable to drink. The project remains modest but continues to grow.  In the coming years I hope to make more wines as I continue to learn but seek to do so organically and independently. I produce only as much as I can make with my own hands.
