Albarino - Artisanal - Esk Valley - Hawkes Bay - New Zealand
This is the very first vintage of this wine made by Gordon Russell and is a delicious example of Albarino at its best – aromatic peachy, crisp yet rounded and full on the palate with a fabulous chalky minerality.
This is an aromatic and full bodied yet elegant stylish wine. The aromatics and intensity of flavour are fabulously full of the peachy and tropical fruit flavours for which the variety is renowned in its home in Spain and Portugal. A portion of barrel fermentation has added richness and complexity to this delicious wine. A great match with seafood.
