VERDAD ALBARINO SL VNYD '16
VERDAD ALBARIÑO, SAWYER LINDQUIST VINEYARD, EDNA VALLEY 2016
NVWE Notes: Bright and forthcoming, the aromas of this pretty white are a genteel mix of lemon curd, lime zest, Asian pear, white peach, cantaloupe and orange blossom, counter-pointed by a hint of “riverstone” minerality. It is soft-edged yet quietly zesty in the mouth, where flavors of Meyer lemon sorbet, Crenshaw melon, pear skin, peach pit, vanilla, white rose and jasmine find a nice harmony. The finish lingers, offering an attractively food-friendly piquancy. It is ready to enjoy. Certified Biodynamic. 500 cases produced.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2016 Albariño Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard is delicious wine with good varietal character. Aging in barrel and full malo amp up the flavors, but this is a white to drink young.
