The Sojourning Somm is back on the road, which means that it is time to post recent wine finds! When teaching classes daily, as we were in Arizona, there is little or no time to highlight favorite finds.
Don't miss the McPherson Albariño. This varietal has become better known in recent years, with classic examples being produced in Rías Baixas, the northwestern corner of Spain above Portugal.
Albariño is one of my favorite varietals, so it's wonderful to see it being vinified well in Texas. McPherson is well know to Texas wine lovers, but more for red wines than white, perhaps.
Classic peach, citrus, and acidity, but with more substantial mouthfeel/texture than many Spanish renderings. Would love to compare this wine to the finest Spanish Albariños at Cúrate in Asheville, NC.
