We farm Albariño at Jespersen Ranch. The vineyard is located in the north-western corner of the Edna Valley AVA just four miles from the ocean. Our three acres of vines thrive in the coastal environment and derive their character from the rolling banks of coastal fog in the morning and ocean breezes in the afternoon.
The 2021 vintage is a clean, refreshing wine reminiscent of the ocean’s close proximity. Mouthwatering minerality is outlined by delicate white floral, peach and citrus flavors.
After early morning hand-harvests on September 21st and October 5th, we lightly pressed our Albariño grapes. We fermented about 3/4 of the wine in stainless steel tanks, and 1/4 in a concrete vessel. The wine went through partial secondary malolactic fermentation natively. We then aged the wine in the same combination of stainless steel and concrete before blending, filtering and bottling it in late February of 2022.
