Albariño Library Two Pack from Rorick Heritage Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. 

Sourced from Rorick Heritage Vineyard, a 2,000 ft. elevation vineyard high in the Sierra Foothills with steeply-planted vines and limestone-rich soils. This rare geological gem is located in Calaveras County, outside the old mining town of Murphys, and has a stunning diversity of sun exposures, elevations, temperatures and soils. This vineyard sees warm days and cool nights driven by the high elevation.

2016: Harvested on Aug. 24th & Sept. 12th from two vineyard blocks, whole-cluster pressed and fermented by wild yeast. Aged for six months in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels. Notes of honeydew melon. 

2017: Harvested on Sept. 14th from the Northeast facing block. Fermented by wild yeast in neutral oak barrels and aged on its lees, with no sulfur added, for six months in neutral oak barrels, including a puncheon. Notes of stone fruit and salinity.
