A rare Napa Valley Albariño from the Stewart Ranch in Carneros, close to San Pablo Bay. Beautifully complex nose with ripe white peach, camomile, jasmine, lime and a distinctive oceanic minerality. On the palate it is bright and energetic with very pure juicy white stone fruit, crispy acidity, impeccable balance and a long mineral-driven finish to the point of feeling salty. A terrific wine! Well worth the price at 27 euro. 200 cases produced. Abv. 14,1%.

15.5/20 (86/100) Несложный аромат груш и лимонного мармелада с легкой травянистой нотой. Довольно кислотное с заметной спиртуозностью во вкусе. (18.03.2018) #prowein2018
