Brecon Estate True Acacia Head 2020, Central Coast, California



Pale lemon in color with a green hint.

Fruity nose of citrus, lemons, grapefruits, green apples, spices, tangerine and bitter herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, limes, lemons, green apples, bitter herbs, spices, light earth and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes and almonds.

This is a nice Albariño from the Central Coast. Easy drinking, very refreshing and tangy.

Needs a couple of minutes to open up, and better when not too cold.

A good quality wine and good by itself or with food. I paired it with fresh berries, cheeses and crackers.

Albariño grapes were fermented in Acacia barrels. A small production of only 276 cases made.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$36.
