*** 2018 Toast of the Coast Silver Medal Winner***
The vines which gave us this first vintage of Albariño at Elliot Ranch were meticulously cared for by Vineyard Manager, Crescincio Sausedo. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and the juice was fermented under cool temperatures to retain vibrant aromatics and acidity. What results is a bright, aromatic white wine which gives us notes of ruby red grapefruit, cantaloupe and white plumeria flower on the nose. This is followed on the palate by citrus and stone fruits with a bright, full, velvety finish.
