Ferdinand Albarino


“Evan Frazier started his winemaking journey in the South of France in 2006. Upon his return to Napa he was fortunate enough to work with the Kongsgaard family who then encouraged his solo project, Ferdinand. Surrounding himself with excellent mentors and great growers, Evan has primarily focused on Spanish Varietals, Tempranillo and Albariño. Considering himself a student of wine (as we all are) and forever learning, (as we all should be) Evan and Ferdinand are of a philosophy we can get behind. Practicing traditional winemaking, these wines are not acidified, fed nutrients, inoculated or any other adjustments. Just carefully handled, and thoughtfully produced with the goal of delicious and table ready wine is the goal regardless of the varietal. Mission accomplished!

Evan Frazier has continued to expand his series of wines, but the Albarińo remains as exciting and vital as the first time I tasted it. An amazing talent, just starting to receive the recognition he is due! We will always love this bottling… Allowing the wine to rest on its fine lees gives the wine a textural balance to it’s high acidity, a savoury counterpoint to the salinity and classic green citrus aromatics. I always find a little hidden tropical note as well, like a clever little bass line weaving itself through the background. To say this is a perfect summer wine is obvious, but the breadth of flavours it brings to that simple pleasure is far deeper than most.” – Andrew Stewart, Vino al Vino
