Vineyard Notes
The 35-acre Brick Barn estate vineyard lies just north of the Santa Ynez River in a largely unexplored winegrowing corridor near the city of Buellton in the western Santa Ynez Valley. Here, persistent sun exposure ensures ripe flavors, while the Pacific Ocean—just 10 miles away—delivers daily cooling that maintains fruit acidity and structure. Our Albariño is planted to a small 1.9-acre block in front of our winery. This block’s sandy riverbed soils foster pure varietal character, while the marine breezes help maintain fruit vibrancy right through full maturity. Tight 6x3 vine spacing ensures that yields are kept in check for the sake of natural flavor intensity.
Production Notes
Our vision is to remain true to the varietal authenticity of classic Spanish Albariño, producing a wine that is full-flavored yet also crisp and refreshing. The fruit was harvested at night to retain pure fruit freshness. The clusters were destemmed and gently pressed. After cold settling for five days, the juice was racked off the solids and fermented in stainless steel over a period of 15 days. Winemaker Adrian Bolshoi chose a yeast to accentuate the wine’s varietal character and textural crispness. After fermentation, the wine was cold aged for nine months in stainless steel to ensure the retention of delicate aromatics and bright fruit flavors.
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 Albariño is an assertively elegant and varietally expressive wine that speaks to the sandy riverbed soils and crisp marine climate of our estate vineyard.
