Albarino - Santa Ynez Valley, Clover Creek Vineyard

Albarino - Santa Ynez Valley, Clover Creek Vineyard Wine Details
Price: $26.00 per bottle

Description: On the palate, the wine is rich, creamy, with a hint of nuttiness to the flavors of pear and peaches. Perhaps the most striking feature is the high acidity of the wine. This is what I had intended, but I have been impressed with how balanced the wine seems, despite having very high acidity.

Varietal Definition
Albarino (known as Alvarinho in Portugal where it is used to make Vinho Verde). White wine grape variety, used to create a serious varietal wine with pleasant citrus fruit aroma, widely grown in regions of N.W. Spain and also in northern Portugal. Thought by some to be a Riesling clone originating from the Alsace region of France.
