Fableist Albariño



Between Fableist, Wonderwall, Neverland, Fiction and Field Recordings, we carry more wines made by Andrew Jones than any other winemaker – over 20 SKUs and growing.  Why?  His wines are varietally correct, reflect a sense of place, follow sustainable or organic farming practices and punch well above their weight class in the value department.  The Fableist project is co-owned by Sans Liege and Groundwork owner winemaker  Curt Schalchlin.

All of the Fableist wines are named after Æsop Fables, and the Albariño bottling is no exception – being named after The Fox and The Stork.

100% Albariño from two Central Coast vineyards:  Morrow View and Riverbench.  Stainless steel fermentation and elevage.   Not to be confused with cool weather Spanish or Portuguese versions, this wine is definitely Californian, but still steers well away from being blowsy or overbearing.  Look for stone fruit, citrusy notes of limón and grapefruit, and a blast of honeysuckle on the midpalate, all enshrined in a wine that is brimming with mouth-watering acidity.

Perfect as a porch pounder, aperitif, or accompanying fish and other lighter fare, this wine should be an arrow in your regular wine choice quiver.
