Bright tropical notes, Meyer lemon, orange peel, peach, and a touch of minerality, this wine is bursting with aromas. The wine starts off with stone fruit flavors, a rich mouth-watering flavor and some classic citrus notes lingering on the finish. This is what Coyote Canyon Albarino is all about. Bright fruit and nice acidity. This is a great wine to enjoy with seafood, spicy food or tapas.
Coyote Canyon Vineyard – Horse Heaven Hills AVA
2019 started with some cold winter weather. The month of February was one of the whitest months I can remember. We had lots of snow that continued into March. The soils were wet and when spring hit growth took off.
We didn’t need to irrigate the grapes until July, much later than average. The summer was warm but not overly extreme. The heat units were on pace with some of the hotter vintages early but trailed off as summer came to an end.
We picked our Rose in late August and got started with the rest of the whites in September. Harvest continued smoothly until we got a cold snap in October. It was all hands-on deck at that point, and we hustled to harvest the rest of the grapes. Unfortunately, we did lose some grapes but were able to salvage most of the harvest.
The wines from this vintage are tasting amazing and we think it will end up being another stellar vintage of wines from Coyote Canyon Vineyard.
Coyote Canyon Vineyard was the first vineyard in Washington State to plant Albariño grapes back in 2006. This exciting Spanish varietal is a rarity in Washington State but is starting to gain in popularity. Albariño originated in Spain and continues to be a major player in wines from Spain where they are primarily used in Rias Baixes blends.
This has always become my favorite white wine to make. It has such great concentration of flavors with bright acidity. It is fun to see how each vintage is a little different. I love the fruit on This is a special Wine Club only bottling. Limited edition. Enjoy!
