It’s been likened to Riesling’s sexier cousin, but Albariño has a unique charm and is certainly making some noise on the New Zealand wine scene. At home in Northwest Spain and Portugal, Albariño is an exciting alternative white variety that seems to possess the best parts of a Riesling and Viognier but with none of their hang-ups.
From the cool climate of Marlborough's Awatere Valley, this is a lively example of what the varietal can deliver with superb concentration and intensity. .
Bright acidity, structure and body meet a foray of citrus and fleshy stone fruit aromas intertwined with white florals and wild fennel. A taut but generous palate delivers lemon zest, white peach, a touch of aniseed and a unique salty minerality. Bold, fresh and the perfect Spring weather companion.
