Watch out for this little guy, he’s all the rage in Europe and is fast becoming the coolest wine to be sipping in Aotearoa right now!
Albariño (pronounced al-bar-een-yoh) is widely planted in Spain and Portugal, this fashionable new white aromatic is medium bodied, zesty with lovely crisp acidity. A variety picked that NZ Herald’s VIVA called – “The zesty, briny Albarino is the hottest new wine on Kiwi tables.”
It’s also caught the eye of wine judges and critics out on the wine show circuit…

4 1/2 Stars (Michael Cooper MW)
“Offering great value…fresh and full-bodied, it is youthful, with concentrated, peachy, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours, a touch of complexity, and a crisp, dry lasting finish.”
4 1/2 Stars & Best Buy (Cuisine magazine 2019)
“Freshly fruited with white peach and nectarine. The spicy ginger adds additional interest to this wine.”

“Aromatic albariño with citrus, mandarin, lime sherbet and white flower flavours giving a strong varietal identity..”
