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 before bottling.
Attractively fragrant; a savoury and floral wine with orange peel and lime zest, lemongrass, quince and grapefruit aromas and flavors. Lees ageing 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. Puts many a Spanish Albarino to shame!
About the Producer
“I practice simple, traditional winemaking. The wines are not inoculated, acidified, nutrified, watered back, and where possible bottled without filtration. 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.” Evan Frazier
Beautiful aromatics with lovely citrus and apricot hints. Lovely concentration with rounded, rich tangerine and lemon fruit. Such finesse here: fine-grained and delicious. Mouthwatering and a bit saline. So nice. 93/100 Dr Jamie Goode, The Wine Anorak.
