Abacela Wins Again!

Wine Press Northwest awarded Abacela a platnum for their wonderful  Albarino!
Owner Earl Jones was among the first in the Northwest to grow and make wine from this racy Spanish white grape, and he remains one of the best. Albarino is know for its steely acidity and bright purity of fruit, and this is an impressive example - as good as any from Galicia, remarked one of our judges. Its aromas reveal minerality and citrus, while the palate gives way to flavors of lime, tropical fruit and crisp apple. A pairing with crab dip will be heavenly.
