    Winemaker Notes

    This single vineyard bottling has a very complex nose, which takes a little time to open. Then, cherries and dark fruit can be recognized with some earthy tones mixed in. On the palate there is a hint of sweetness which leads into big cherry flavors with well-balanced acid and tannins. The wine gives a long finish and we believe it will cellar for up to 15 years. It is our first Vineyard bottling for Schouten Vineyards.

    Bright and aromatic with distinctive floral and fruit characteristics, Albariño has enjoyed a surge in popularity over the last couple of decades. This grape claims dual citizenship of both Spain (in the Rías Baixas region) and Portugal, where it is widely planted in the northwest and is known as Alvarinho. In recent years, plantings have increased throughout California.

    In the Glass

    Bursting with rich, ripe flavor, Albariño can show flavors of orange blossom, grapefruit, lime, apple, pear, melon, and white peach. It may also have notes of almond paste, fresh cut grass, jasmine, or geranium. The best examples boast zingy acidity and often a briny, mineral quality. It is typically fermented in stainless steel to preserve the purity of its fruity flavors, though oak-aged examples can provide a weighty yet refreshing alternative to Chardonnay with surprising potential for aging. Due to Albariño’s thick skins and large number of pips, it often shows a bit of bitterness on the palate.

    Perfect Pairings

    Albariño loves seafood, and can be paired with a variety of marine delicacies. Its distinctive waxy texture and lemony acidity make it a perfect pairing with fresh sardines, oysters, octopus, or squid.

    Sommelier Secret

    Albariño is considered an aromatic variety, and actually shares many chemical compounds with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Muscat. If you enjoy these elegantly perfumed whites, chances are you’ll love Albariño.
