  • Country USA

  • Case size 12 / 75cl
  • Typical grape from Galicia, in North-West Spain, Marimar Torres grafted the bud wood from these vines onto the slightly warmer Russian River Valley estate. Intense, classic aromas of citrus, lime, and white peach, with floral overtones of honeysuckle and a minerality reminiscent of wet stones. Fresh, lively, and mouth-filling, with bright acidity that follows through with an elegant, crisp finish.

The grapes were harvested September 2-5, gently whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel, with our Indigenous yeast. After the primary fermentation, the wine rested on the lees until bottled, in May 2021.

This vintage exhibits bright aromas of honeysuckle and star jasmine, Asian pear, and stone fruit like apricot and white peach. The palate displays its classic minerality reminiscent of wet stones and it is crisp and lively, savory and with bright acidity – but also a note of sunshine from California! I would recommend serving it at 45°- 48° F with raw or grilled seafood,
smoked salmon, sushi, and Asian cuisine — and for sure, with tapas!

The Don Miguel Vineyard: Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this vineyard is located in the Green Valley the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River Valley, only ten miles from the Pacific. The Albarino is trained in a cordon style with alternating spurs (we call them alligator teeth), which adds width to the fruit zone and provides optimum airflow and light.

In 1981 she started the search for the perfect property to plant a vineyard, and - after two years of searching - she bought 25 hectares of land in Sonoma County, close to the town of Sebastopol in the Russian River Valley appellation, an area which arguably produces the finest Pinot Noir in all of California. Today the Don Miguel Vineyard encompasses 50 planted acres. About 20 are planted with Chardonnay, 20 with Pinot Noir, five with Albarino, five with Tempranillo, two with Syrah, and one with an experimental block of Godello.
