Hailed by Master of Wine Jancis Robinson as a “fashionable, high-quality, fresh, aromatic variety,” Albariño is Spain’s flagship white. It’s quickly gained a following, making appearances on trendy wine lists nationwide. But this gorgeous example actually comes from California, proving that Albariño also thrives in the Golden State.

Barn Swallow Cellars hails from the Paso Robles Highlands District. Like the larger Paso Robles region, the Highlands District experiences hot, sunny days that allow grapes to ripen to perfection. But it has another distinctive benefit: high elevation, which keeps temperatures cooler at night and preserves the Albariño grapes’ thrillingly fresh character. Throw in the excellent 2018 vintage, and you have a real recipe for success.

Look forward to juicy peach and zesty, citrus-fruit aromas and flavors. While refreshing on its own, this classy Albariño will shine with crisp salads or seafood dishes. We recommend a classic Caesar salad, followed by a main course of baked tilapia with a squeeze of lemon – but feel free to experiment!

A native Spanish grape becomes a star in sunny California. Secure your share of this dazzling white today.
