2019 CCW Chespear Sparkling Albariño
Horse Heaven Hills AVA
Aug. 23, 2019
The aromas are tropical, and citrus mixed with a classic yeasty note. This is our 4th sparkling wine made with Albarino and we love the trajectory of this wine. The fruit is bright and playful with enough body to compliment the refreshing bubbles. Drink now or age for the next decade.

This has been an amazing project to work on here at Coyote Canyon. Albarino has always been one of my favorite varietals and the opportunity to make a sparkling wine using this grape made me excited. This is the 4th vintage we have made, and each seems a little better than the last. Still homing in on the optimal picking time, I am very happy with the way this one is tasting. The Albarino characteristics show very well, adding a zesty tropical note that goes well with the yeasty aromas.
