Crawford Vineyard sits down in the Yakima Valley which is traditionally a little cooler than the Destiny Ridge estate vineyard up in the Horse Heaven Hills. The cooler temperatures allow the fruit to ripen and mature a little slower, which results in lower sugar, higher acidity, and a wine that is more elegant, fresh, and crisp. This Albarino opens with aromatics of white peach, melon, and orange blossom with background notes of mineral and wet stone. Experience lime, mandarin orange, and other crisp citrus fruits on your palate that will carry through to a long, dazzling finish. The bright acidity and lower alcohol in this wine make it a gem for pairing with a multitude of different foods: oysters, halibut, spicy noodles, Indian cuisine, and pasta with white sauce. It is also a great wine to enjoy on its own while poolside in the summer or kicking back on your patio.
