2016 Broken Earth Limited Release Albarino
With precise manner, this wine balances itself with intrinsic acidity and a botanical backbone of flavors. The first scents include fresh hints of spring and a wild ocean breeze. This breeze turns into a briny, salivating acidity, which cleanses the palate after every sip. The flavor profiles that come through are also acid driven; leading to notes of fresh cut pineapple, grapefruit, and Castillon orange blossom. With its pale lemon hue, this wine easily comes across as a cooler climate representation of Albariño. The trend of acidity continues through the finish, immediately igniting a craving for the next sip, or bite of food. Since this is a head-in-the-clouds/feet-in-the-sand sort of wine, only the freshest and most simplistic of seafood will do: think oysters, banana and tiger prawns, or lobster. These are the only essentials you need to enjoy the good life.
