Paragon Vineyard, Edna Valley

Sourced from one of the oldest blocks of Albarino in Paragon Vineyard, our 2016 Albariño de Moto will enchant you with each swirl in the glass. The 2016 vintage was utterly perfect for Albariño in the Edna Valley with enough warm weather close to ripening to allow fully mature flavor development. We harvested our block on October 4, 2016 and immediately whole cluster pressed our grapes into a stainless tank for cold settling. The juice was gently racked and fermented in stainless steel at a low temperature for five weeks. Post fermentation, the wine was aged for five months in neutral oak and we did not allow any secondary fermentation to occur. Aromatically, our 2016 Albariño is driven by crushed pineapple with a hint of peach and white flower with an underlying salinity and minerality that is one of the grape’s charming attributes. On the palate, flavors of stone fruit and pink apple are the driving force behind a luscious mouthfeel framed with satisfying acidity. Enjoy with shellfish, BBQ fish or other maritime fare.
