La Marea Kristy Vineyard Albarino Monterey 2020
This 100% Albariño is produced from fruits grown in Kristy Vineyard, on the western bench overlooking the Salinas River on broken sediment of ancient sea beds. Kristy is special because Albariño in the vineyard reaches full phenological ripeness at low potential alcohol and natural, bright acidity. Cold fermented in stainless steel for aromatic intensity.
Strong Salinas Valley winds, help to support, this true-to-varietal Albariño. Lively and bright aromatics fill the nose, lemon/ lime, followed by stone fruit, white peach, minerality on the palate, tying it all together, racy acidity. The briny, salty, savoriness continues in the enduring finish.
