"This rare find in the Napa Valley is bright and floral, with bristling acidity. From an estate-grown site planted in 2012, this white saw no oak, preserving its fruity core of melon, peach and jasmine."
Vinous Reverie Notes
“This is pure, liquid springtime. The 2018 vintage fills the glass with bright aromas and flavors of honeysuckle, citrus blossom, white melon, white peach, and wet stone all beautifully presented with vibrant, racy acidity.” — Elias Fernandez, Winemaker
Winemaker Notes: We’ve always loved Albariño – the clean acidity, the liveliness, and the purity – and wanted to see what the grape would do here in Napa Valley’s Carneros District. In the cellar we give it just four months on the lees in stainless steel barrels — no oak, no malolactic fermentation — so that the resulting wine is fruity and refreshing. We’re pleased with the results of this new vintage of Eighty Four Albariño and hope you are too.
