2015 Albarino


Home Block vineyard at our winery site on the South bank of the Waikato River. The loam soils of the site are interspersed with river gravels which creates potential for strong canopies but with good soil drainage.

Fully hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The loose clustered and later ripening Albarino variety handled this early season pressure admirably to go on and achieve full ripeness whilst maintaining excellent fruit condition at harvest. Low yields, facilitated optimum flavour development.

Tasting Note
The aromas of this unique and charming wine are intriguing with a fresh scented array of lime, peach, apricot and honeysuckle characters. The palate features bright fruit and tangy acidity, leading the wine to a delicate and dry styled finish with excellent length. Very much like Sauvignon Blanc

d Matching
Ideally suited to antipasto, tapas and fresh seafood, particularly calamari served with a squeeze of lemon.
