Peaches, lychee, melon on the nose, very intense aromatics. Bright acidity, lively, light bodied, with a sharp finish. 

ABOUT THE VINEYARD: Morroo View Vineyard is located in Edna Valley. Gently rolling hills that consist of Tierra loam soils produce grapes with intense aromatics. 6 acres of Albariño is grown on roughly between 9 and 15 percent slopes, with rows oriented Northwest by Southeast. 

GROWING SEASON: May and June were particularly cool months, but a heat wave in July and August sparked vigorous growth. This aided in the decision to pick a little early to avoid sunburn wihch causes browing of the skins. 

WINEMAKING: The Albariño received a direct whole-cluster press, seperating any juice yielded above 1 bar (about 15psi) to reduce acidity. The skins are where most grape acids reside, so pressing lightly created a lower yield but with better tasting juice. The juice was then cold fermented by keeping it between 54- and 60- degrees Fahrenheit to help preserve volatile esters which enhanced the aromatic intensity. This process lasted nearly a month. A small amount of very lightly toasted oak chips were added during fermentation to add further complexity to the nose.
