Albariño 2020

Gisborne
  • 75cl bottle

Gorgeous little citrus flowers link arms with melon and peach to dance in the sunshine, always maintaining an air of class. Meanwhile lime lingers in the shadows vying for attention.

Vineyards

Vines are meticulously managed to ripen fruit in optimum condition.

Vintage

Our earliest Gisborne vintage to date. Warm and settled weather over the late Spring flowering period produced healthy yields and clean bunches, and the fruit maintained exceptional condition all the way through to the end of the season.

Winemaking

The fruit was picked and gently pressed to stainless steel tanks. 85% of the clear juice was racked and fermented with yeast selected to highlight the lovely aromatics and texture of this exciting variety. The remaining 15% of the juice was run to seasoned French Oak Puncheons for a natural fermentation which adds complexity and richness to the wine.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Salads and Picnics
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
Imbibe on its own or devour along with a Thai chicken salad.
