2021 Ferdinand Albariño

2021 Ferdinand Albariño

$ 22.00

Light gold color; balanced and attractively fragrant; a savory and floral wine with orange peel and lime zest, lemongrass, quince and grapefruit aromas and flavors. Lees aging in neutral oak gives the wine finesse, sophistication, and a hint of nuttiness - a pleasing complement to the variety's balance of natural acidity, slight bitterness, and salty finish.

The flagship of the Ferdinand project; the Ferdinand Albariño honors its Galician heritage with varietal aromatics of lime zest and a distinct salinity. Respecting its California origins, the wine is barrel fermented and rests on lees for 8 months, giving the wine savoriness and providing a rounded balance to its natural acidity and freshness.
