Abacela Albariño Umpqua Valley Estate Grown 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The palate’s sumptuous ripe pineapple and apple flavors lead into a creamy texture with lemon meringue and mineral notes carried on a dry, delicate finish. This crisp wine makes an ideal pairing with brown butter-seared tuna and salad nicoise with cilantro-pear vinaigrette. Appellation: Southern Oregon At harvest: Sugar; 22.2° brix pH; 3.10 TA; 9.8 grams/liter Cooperage: Stainless Steel At bottling: Sugar; Nil Alcohol: 13.4% by volume

Here, on sunny south sloping rocky hills, we passionately grow Tempranillo, Syrah, Merlot, Dolcetto, Malbec, Grenache, and other varietals carefully matched to our unique microclimate. The estate fruit is hand picked when optimally ripe and gently fermented and processed in a gravity flow winery to preserve quality. The crisp, fresh varietal character of our white wine is a product of our vineyard practices and minimal handling wine making philosophy. Application of these same principals to red wine production, with additional prolonged cellaring in small oak casks, further enhances flavor and stabilizes the wines. Consequently our red wines are big and deeply-colored with intense aromas and flavors that have ample structure and tannin for aging. The final products are balanced wines with distinctive varietal character that pair exceptionally well with an assortment of delicious foods. Our ultimate objective is to produce wines that are a statement of the harmony between the grape variety and its terroir. We appreciate your virtual visit to Abacela, but want to encourage you to tour our vineyards and winery and taste our wines to fully appreciate our passion. Read less

Try this with raw oysters or caviar. This is one awesome albarino
