This crisp white has been chosen due to its ability to withstand warmer temperatures. Behind a strawlike color, the nose reveals aromas of daffodil flower, pear, grapefruit, honeydew and lemon zest, followed by notes of vanilla and fresh-baked cupcake. This medium-bodied wine was made exclusively from Albariño grapes grown in Solano County. The mouth displays two main characters, crisp acidity and minerality. This dry, white wine has a citrus finish of Meyer lemon and lime. On the wine calendar, August 1st is Albariño Day, a perfect time to release this wine to our Wine Club.
