More about this wine from Monterey, California
Eben Drucker named this winery "Carrier" to pay tribute to the soldiers and their pigeons who carried messages during World War II. Carrier focuses on wines from the Central Coast of California and, to make this Albariño, Eben found a limestone soil vineyard in the Gavilan mountains of Monterrey. The vineyard sits in a deep crevice making the area both cold and windswept.

The Albariño bears the moniker "Beach Comber" for good reason. The wine is full of bright fresh acidity and citrus to keep you cool while walking down the beach this summer. The wine was aged briefly in neutral oak and did not go through malolactic fermentation, making it the perfect aperitif or pairing for fish. No need for lemon, just add Beach Comber.
