Our Small Block Albariño from Mount Veeder offers aromas of almond paste and ginger accented citrus zest and flavors of dried apricot and starfruit that are showcased in a wine that’s crisp and pleasantly tart, a wonderful pairing for richly sauced seafood.
At a Glance
taste + style
“Beautiful and inviting aromas of orange blossom and apricot lift from the glass with hints of grapefruit zest. These aromas are complemented by bright, crisp flavors on the palate. Elements of honeydew melon and white pear provide a refreshing acidity to a perfectly balanced wine. Our Small Block Series Albariño makes a wonderful pairing for richly sauced seafood or Spanish style tapas.” – Stephanie Pope, Winemaker
Vineyard + Production
The steep mountain slopes and higher elevation vineyards of Mount Veeder take advantage of the cooling marine influence from the San Francisco Bay, providing cool afternoon breezes and warmer nights that create microclimates and produce rich mountain fruit of distinct character.
Food + Wine Pairing
“Salty and sweet combinations like fresh peaches wrapped in Jamón Serrano, steamed shellfish with chorizo or Boquerones with preserved lemons and pickled onions.“ –Chad Hendrickson, Executive Chef
