Dogfish Head Brewery

Brecon Estate

True Acacia Head Central Coast Albariño

Pale lemon in color with a green hint.

Fruity nose of citrus, lemons, grapefruits, green apples, spices, tangerine and bitter herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, limes, lemons, green apples, bitter herbs, spices, light earth and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes and almonds.

This is a nice Albariño from the Central Coast. Easy drinking, very refreshing and tangy.

Needs a couple of minutes to open up, and better when not too cold.

A good quality wine and good by itself or with food. I paired it with fresh berries, cheeses and crackers.

Albariño grapes were fermented in Acacia barrels. A small production of only 276 cases made.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$36.

Have always loved this brewery - real solid lineup and in a sea of IPA this is very well executed: brmming with flavors without hitting you over the head w/citrus & bitter hops. — 12 days ago

Grande Réserve Pères Trappistes Belgian Ale 2019

Big head... smells of Molasses and chocolate cake. A classic Trappist. Dark. Thick. A slow sipper. Tried to match with Indian food... I’d say it worked-ish. (the vintage is on the cork). — 20 days ago

Vinhas Velhas Baga 2016

N: Roses, tar, eucalyptus, mint, pepper, Red flowers and fruits.
P:Bracing acidity, prickly, med-light body,( are we sure this isn’t Nebbiolo?)
Cherries, Very much like a cross between Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir, and Sangiovese. I think I’ve said that before.
Black raspberry fruit, fine tannins, a med finish.!
As it sits in the glass, tobacco rears it’s head. The body fleshes out a bit. Acidity recedes.
