2015 Galicia – Albariño SOLD OUT
Albariño grows best in areas with foggy mornings, salty ocean breezes, sun in the afternoon, and cool nights. Edna Valley, near San Luis Obispo, has the perfect climate for this Spanish varietal. This lush valley is close to the ocean and about 40 minutes south of Paso Robles.
This is a classic, crisp Albariño with hints of apple blossoms on the nose and apricot and grapefruit on the palate. The 2015 Galica is a dry, refreshing wine with a great acid balance. It's perfect for sipping on those hotter-than-hot summer days.
The 2015 vintage is a spectacular pairing with any of the blue cheeses. It will drink beautifully with fish tacos, spicy Thai food, seafood-based paella, sea bass, spring rolls, risotto, chicken, crab and avocado salad, peach cobbler, artichoke, and desserts such as fruit tarts, rice pudding, flan, fresh fruit, and sweet cakes.
