2015 Keep Wine Albarino - El Rino

VINO VERDE STYLE ALBARINO

About this wine

From the Lost Slough Vineyard in Clarksburg California, this wine is bottled unfiltered with partial malo to create a slight spritz in bottle. The CO2 is created by the malo to lactic fermentation finishing in bottle to maintains its freshness. No residual sugar, SO2 or yeast was added to this wine. Nutty and saline but with great acidity and freshness and searing minerality. This was how ancient method vino verde style wine was made before filtration and adding Co2 at bottling. Only a very few producers still use this method to create a no S02 wine that ages beautifully. 12% alcohol PH 3.16

Keep Wines

Winemakers Jack Roberts (former Matthiasson Wines Assistant Winemaker) and Johanna Jensen (Scholium Project and Broc Cellars allumn) have come together to create wines influenced by the old world with less ripe fruit, minimal manipulation and great ageability. In the vigneron tradition, they do much of the work themselves from vineyard to bottling.
