It’s official, New Zealand Albariño is going to be a thing. Our first from Hawke’s Bay, this comes from new plantings at Prospect Vineyard, Bridge Pa. In the grand plan, we’re dead keen to plant by the Te Awanga coast but we’ll have to prove to the crunchers we can sell it first!
Pale with light green flashes, this Albariño has lovely lime and grapefruit aromatics with delicate florals and a slight saltiness. The fragrant, exotic aromas are backed by a beautiful crisp and succulent palate.
It’s a little like biting into a new season’s apple…a reminder why fresh is always best!
