This aromatic white wine grape hailing from the Galicia region in Spain and Northern Portugal, performs exceedingly well in Gisborne. A cool spring and a dry late summer resulted in perfect ripeness in the 2016 Albariño grapes. The fruit was hand picked and gently pressed to stainless steel tanks. 85% of the clear juice was racked and fermented with yeast selected to highlight the lovely aromatics and texture of this exciting variety. The remaining 15% of the juice was run to seasoned French Oak Puncheons for a natural fermentation which adds complexity and richness to the wine.
