Wine Review: This light straw colored Albarino is impressive and will be a crowd pleaser. This wine opens with a mild Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of pilsner beer. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and very nicely balanced between it fruit and gentle acidity. The flavor profile is a very tasty ripe Anjou pear with nicely integrated gentle acidity. I also detected hints of green apple and a dash of white pepper. The finish is dry and very refreshing. This Very Good Albarino would pair perfectly with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Eidos' are the backyard garden arbors constituting the traditional Albarino vineyard. Selected grapes from vines over 50 years are destemmed, crushed and macerated under temperature control for maximum aromatic extraction. Natural yeasts are encouraged for a prolonged fermentation, the wine bottled beginning in April following the vintage after extended contact with the fine lees. Richly textured and exotically intense Albarinos are the result, the salty sea breeze and granitic levels evident in a mouthwateringly mineral finish.
