Hendry Albariño Napa Valley Hendry Ranch 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Let’s do Spain in Napa! This may be the only Albarino made in Napa since they are predominately grown in Rias Baixas DO of Spain and Vinho Verde region of Portugal. A great summer white made by the Hendry family (Farming in Napa since 1939) from all estate grapes. George Hendry’s wine making philosophy is through the subtle use of oak and restraint in ripeness to craft a wine that highlight the terroir of the vineyard. Very rarely do you get a dry white wine with balance of fruit aromas and acid. Screw top made for immediate consumption. Buen Vino, Salute.

Hendry is a small estate winery located in the south-western Napa valley. Our 117 acres of vineyard lie on gently sloping terrain between 160 and 290 feet in elevation. Thin stony soils and moderate climate allow the production of a wide range of varietals. Most of this property has belonged to the Hendry family since 1939. At Hendry, we stress the importance of the vineyard, and we devote much of our time to understanding its variation on small scales. Combination of soil, climate, varietal and clone are critical, and for this reason, we have divided our vineyard into 50 different blocks, each managed separately. To us, every block is a learning experience that teaches us about interactions among these variables, and how they influence fruit composition and wine quality. Small changes in any of them can have dramatic effects on the wine. There has beem vineyard on this property for more than 140 years, and we have been farming here for nearly half that time. As our knowledge grows, our vineyard blocks evolve, and we get closer to understanding the full potential of our vineyard. Read less
