Springfield Estate Albariño 2019

Redolent and full bodied with apricot, nectarine and floral aromas, yet with a saline minerality and bright acidity, it’s a wine that continues to captivate us to this day.

We first discovered Albariño many years ago on our travels. Though many bottles of wine were drunk, it was the memory of the Albariño that stayed with us long after we returned home.


in the vineyard : Over several years, the single bundle of vines we received from a fellow producer was slowly multiplied until a full vineyard was planted, and the crop it bore did not disappoint the memory of that magical wine we tasted so long ago.
