Doft & Smak

Spanien's hippest white grape is rarely seen outside its native Galicia, so this citrus charged, peach fresh Albariño from California's cool Edna Valley is a rare treat. Wine Enthusiast wrote of a previous vintage 'wonderful, amazingly rewarding wine'.

Beskrivning

Surprisingly perhaps, the Edna Valley ranks among the world'scoolest growing regions as, unlike most of California, the valley lies east-west, allowing fog and breezes to be pulled directly from the Pacific Ocean, just four miles away. A star on Spanien'sGalician Coast, Albariño is also right at home here, though only a few estates have significant plantings. This example was made at the family owned Tangent winery , run by cousins John Niven and Michael Blaney. The grapes were selected from one of their finest plots, the Paragon vineyard, planted in 1973, which includes 45 hectares dedicated to Albariño. Crafted by Burgundian winemaker Christian Roguenant, this beautifully refreshing white is perfect with shellfish dishes or leafy salads.
