2023 Brecon Estate Albarino Edna Valley

Brecon Estate is a boutique estate winery situated in the westside hills outside of Paso Robles, California. The winery was established by Simon and Anna Hackett and Damian and Amanda Grindley, with Damian overseeing winemaking. The wines are small batch fermented with each wine having a story behind it. They are sold exclusively through the Brecon tasting room and are limited in allocation.

This is a voluptuous bottling and a perfect rendition of a Spanish Albarino. The floral aromas of white spring blossoms and peonies pull you deeply into the glass as you become immersed in a wealth of exotic, tropical fruits. Notes of dried apricot, candied yellow citrus and mango are delicately woven into the body of the wine along with a hint of vanilla cream and salinity at the edges. It exits with some refreshing acidity and remains long and bright through the finish, allowing you enough time to savor the entire journey.
