Abacela 2012 Albariño Roble, Umpqua Valley, $25

By on July 5, 2013

Abacela's 2012 Albarino Roble is fermented in new American oak.Earl and Hilda Jones have made Albariño a signature white wine at Abacela in Southern Oregon’s Umpqua Valley for the past 12 years. This year, Abacela produced two versions, with this fermented in new American oak. The oak never really shows up for us, with aromas of cantaloupe, dried pineapple and spearmint, followed by flavors of slate, apple and pineapple on the palate. It provides brisk acidity throughout.
