La Marea 2020 Albarino Kristy Vineyard Monterey
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 90+ Points
Floral hints suggestive of chamomile and tropical flowers highlight the aromatic profile of this wine while quietly zesty scents of green apple skin, honeydew melon, dry peach, ginger and white pepper overlay saline mineral suggestions. Sea shell notes make a sharp-dry contrast on the palate, bringing a food-worthy balance to piquantly fresh flavors of apple and melon and a hint of peach ginger-chutney. The flavorful, lingering finish is still a bit youthfully tight but the next few months should bring a more perfect harmony. 1300 cases produced.
