2020 Stewart Ranch Albariño
The Stewart Ranch in Carneros has its toes in the estuary south of Napa, and stays cool and breezy. Albariño has lovely durable flowery characters, and with careful farming, it progressed well. Albariño itself is an uncommon variety in California, but it is well known in Portugal where it is grown in the Northwest, more specifically Galicia, Spain. Its zippy acidity and light floral notes make it a natural companion to tapas and fresh seafood. Our 2020 Albariño offers aromas of orange blossom, delicate apricot, mandarin orange and a glimmer of pineapple. The palate has a satiny structure with plenty of acidity on the finish.
