    Winemaker's Notes:

    Old vine Albarino - 80-100 yrs, planted on ungrafted vines in pure granite soils.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright yellow. Intensely perfumed bouquet of pungent orange pith, pear and anise, with slow-building spiciness and chalky minerality. Vibrant, finely etched citrus and smoky mineral flavors expand and gain depth with air and pick up sexy floral character. Reminds me of Chablis. The brisk finish features a strong echo of lime zest and a touch of iodine. These are pie franco vines-i.e., planted on their own, ungrafted rootstock, which is quite rare, anywhere.
