At long last, Lodi Albarino is back! Spain’s Albariño grape kissed by California terroir!
We snagged this delicious, crisp beauty from a well-known, multi-generational family winery in the heart of Lodi. Located at the head of numerous tributaries that feed the San Pablo Bay, Lodi boasts a fantastic wine-growing climate due to the natural influx of cool, mineral ocean air that allows temps to cool off at night, preserving the fruit.
Lot 876 is the perfect wine to sip on during this late summer heat wave, offering relief from both the heat and the pocketbook at just $13/bottle.
Lot 876 2021 Lodi Albarińo pours like golden nectar in the glass with bright hints of fresh clementines and lemon zest. On the palate, stone fruits, honeysuckle, and floral elements abound, while the medium acidity allows the saline & ocean notes to come forward. A great expression that melds California terroir with this refreshing Spanish varietal.
