Reserve Albariño 2021 6x75cl

Hawkes Bay
  • 75cl bottle

The 2021 Reserve Albarino displays intensely pure and expressive characters of ripe peach and citrus lime entwined with a subtle saline mineral complexity. The palate starts rich and concentrated before flowing to a long and sleek finish, where notes of lime brightly echo long after.


This wine is crafted from a single vineyard named 'Two Terraces', a relatively cool inland site situated near Maraekakaho which is meticulously managed by the owners Ian and Linda Quinn.


2021 was a truly exceptional Hawkes Bay vintage. Naturally moderate yields combined with warmer than average temperatures and dry settled conditions encouraged fruit to achieve optimum ripeness and maintain excellent condition through to harvest.


Hand harvesting and gentle whole-bunch pressing encouraged the finest quality juice from the outset. Cold settled, beautifully clear juice was carefully racked under inert gas cover to stainless steel tanks for cool fermentation with aromatic yeast strains. A brief period of maturation on yeast lees followed prior to blending of the individual parcels for finishing and bottling.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted White Meats
  • Fish/Shellfish
  • Salads and Picnics
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
  • Oriental
Enjoy with a plate of Frutti di Mare.
