From the winery:

 

Our first ever Albariño! This is a grape we’ve loved for many years. We remember drinking a bottle of Do Ferreiro on one of our first dates like 13 years ago and loving it. They remain an inspiration, along with the likes of Raul Perez, Envidiacochina, and Zarate, among others. In our approach we sought to take all the things we like about these wines and use them as a starting point, while adapting our own techniques based on the site. C5 Vineyard, the same source for our Tempranillo, is a relatively warm site located in the heart of Santa Ynez Valley, thus warmer than the comparatively chilly climes of Rias Baixas. As a result, it is more densely textured, even picked at lower sugars. Additionally, we allowed the wine to complete malolactic fermentation, a relative rarity in Rias Baixas. Lastly, we did not fine or filter the wine, giving it more textural depth. The resulting wine is one we’re very proud of. It possesses the classic peach and floral notes of old world Albariño, but has a striking salinity that we often find in whites from Santa Barbara County, as well as a fleshiness that makes it mouthfilling. This broad palate impression is kept in check with succulent acidity. On the whole, it is the exact kind of wine we want to be drinking right now, and we hope it adds something new to the conversation about new world Albariño.  Neutral oak for 7 months. 30 ppm SO2 after malolactic, 20 ppm at bottling. Unfined and Unfiltered
