FOUR STARS | Raymond Chan
From the winery that planted the first NZ Albarino vines comes the refreshing and crisp single vineyard 2016 Albarino. With a perfect harmony of stonefruit and pear with mineral undertones, this is an excellent drop to compliment seafood or chicken dishes or just pour a glass and enjoy on its own.
The winery writes "Bright straw-yellow with lemon-green hues, aromas of white stonefruit, limes and exotic yellow florals. Dry to taste and a full, warm and rounded generous palate. Concentrated flavours of white and yellow peaches, honeydew melons, vanilla, passionfruit and pineapple. Minerality, zesty acidity, and slight oak spice. It has a full and lingering palate."
