San Luis Obispo Albariño, 2019

Produced by Croma Vera Wines

When in Rome, do as the Romans do. The Albariño grape has been cultivated since the days of the ancient Romans. Though, we'd argue it has gotten better with age. The Romans would blend the Albariño grape with other more sought after grapes at the time, not realizing it was worthy of standing entirely alone. It is living, breathing, flowing history that you can taste with each pour. Melon, white peach and pear intertwine for a translucent gold that tastes as pure as it looks. Serve it chilled if you so choose and pair it alongside the sea: seared, buttery scallops, flaky white fish, shrimp, lobster and sushi.
