2015 Albariño

Albariño is indigenous to the Iberian Peninsula (that's Spain and Portugal to those without a map in hand). In Portugal, the style is lean and tart, a definite contrast to the more lush and full-bodied styles originating from Spain's Rias Biaxas. Known for being the super star white wine of this region, Albariño was not widely planted outside of this Mediterranean enclave until recently.

Description

Albariño is indigenous to the Iberian Peninsula (that's Spain and Portugal to those without a map in hand). In Portugal, the style is lean and tart, a definite contrast to the more lush and full-bodied styles originating from Spain's Rias Biaxas. Known for being the super star white wine of this region, Albariño was not widely planted outside of this Mediterranean enclave until recently. You can find more and more plantings in California, Oregon, and Australia. Our Texas Albariño has tropical scents of peach, mango, and orange oil, married with the rounder texture the wine offers. Some may say "¡Viva España!, here at McPherson Cellars we say "¡Viva Albariño!"
