The citrusy nose shows fresh quince, apricot, orange peels and bitter lemon. The fruit flavors are ripe on the palate due to soft acidity, offering bitter citrus, peach and orange. There is a touch of white pepper on the midpalate, ending with notes of clementine and lime pith. This wine captures the tartness juxtaposed to vivid fruit expression like classic Albariño, with a complex mid-palate and finish. Pair with seafood, shellfish, paella dishes, or garden salads.
This Spanish grape variety has adapted well to the Texas High Plains. At McPherson we ferment and age in stainless steel to preserve the natural fruit aromas and flavors including peach, apple, melon and citrus. The wine is dry with good acidity and pleasant mineral overtones.
