Clean aromas of crisp pear are coated in a wet-stone veil on the nose of this bottling. The texture is impressive on the palate, giving a rocky backbone to the rounded pear, apple and melon flavors.
Wine Tasting Notes
On the nose,Cadre Sea Queen Edna Valley Albarino bursts with spicy citrus and salty zest. There is a seductive orange blossom and jasmine aspect paired with what I dub as Hawaiian breakfast fruits. You can definitely smell the sea influence on this wine as there are briny notes that speak to the nearby Pacific Ocean. White flower notes are ever so present, but an exotic mix of citrus and tropical fruit reigns. On the palate, this wine is full of a salty tang of energy. Our Albariño never lacks acidity. In fact, managing that high acidity presents one of our biggest challenges, yet that is our greatest gift. There is a rich assembly of briny citrus, stone fruit and lush tropicals that are all corralled with vibrant acidity from start to finish. A lingering freshness and minerality cements Albariño as the one varietal that is queen of the sea.
