Vineyard Notes: The Terra Alta Vineyard is the 80-acre “home vineyard” of Marcus & Liz Bokisch, where their winery & tasting room are located in the Clements Hills sub-AVA of Lodi. Planted in 2000, it is the first vineyard they planted in the area. The climate is Mediterranean & the soil is a volcanic clay loam. The vineyard is organically farmed.
Cellar Notes: The 2017 Albarino was fermented in stainless steel and after fermentation, the wine was racked to barrel for 3 months to build up the body. While in the barrel, native malolactic fermentation occurred.
Tasting Notes: On the palate it is smooth & saline. There are flavors of white peach, lemon verbena, & a long finish of river rocks & wool.
