This was a beautiful one. Easily one of the best expressions of CA #albariño recommended to all my friends. Truly a great bottle of wine.

Half price beauty on K&L.


Winery Notes: "Citrus blossom aromatics, with lemon oil, pineapple, lemongrass, minerality, and viscosity on palate. The Albariño comes from a beautiful vineyard site in Calaveras County, owned and managed by Matthew Rorick and family. The fruit was harvested pre-dawn in mid August at 22.5 deg brix., and promptly hauled "down the hill" to the winery. Whole cluster pressed and fermented in neutral Hungarian oak barrels, there were no additions made to the wine aside from a moderate amount of sulfur dioxide to prevent oxidation. Aged 11 months on lees, and bottled on August 24th, 2016. The vines were planted in 2003 on a mixture of schist, quartz, and volcanic soils."

Aromatic and beautiful, the Wilson Foreigner Albariño is incredibly drinkable and enticing. Matthew Rorick is killing it with his Calaveras fruit, and Wilson Foreigner has used to to craft something delicious.
