Albariño is not very common in the United States, and yet it has found a home here at Chrysalis Vineyards. Dry and crisp, this wine is filled with rich, bracing flavors of citrus, almonds, apricots, and peaches, with an inherent tartness and clean acidity.
This wine is 100% Albariño and the stainless steel fermentation ensures it’s clean and crisp, while perserving all the essential aromatics. It is aged in 20% new oak to enhance the richness and mouthfeel.
