2016 Albariño, Spanish Springs Vineyard

(all stainless steel) Bright green-tinged straw. Lively citrus and orchard fruit aromas show good energy and dusty mineral and floral nuances. Silky and focused on the palate, offering nervy lemon pith and honeysuckle flavors and a suggestion of bitter quinine. In a taut, lively style, delivering firm closing bite and repeating florality.

2016 Albariño, Spanish Springs Vineyard

There is an impressively persistent stony quality to the nose and palate of this bottling. On the nose, that takes the form of a rainy cement note, which, along with lime-skin and pith scents, give fresh tension to the broad peach and pear aromas. On the palate, it’s all about grippy texture, which holds up green apple, underrripe pluot and lime-wedge flavors.
