Victor Palencia, owner of Palencia Winery and Vino La Monarcha. Read about him here.
Bursting at the seams with bright fruit flavor, this Palencia Albariño is a blend of the warmer Spanish Castle Vineyard and cooler Evergreen Vineyard within the Ancient Lakes AVA. The Spanish Castle Albariño ripened two weeks earlier than Evergreen giving a flavor profile of ripe cantaloupe, apricot, and honeydew melon. The Evergreen fruit has more citrus, lemon zest flavors that are framed with bright minerality that coats and refreshes the palate. After harvest the grapes were fermented separately for 30 days in Hungarian oak puncheons then blended together before bottling. Enjoy the Galicia style lingering mineral notes chilled with your favorite seafood & salads. Salud! - From the winery.
