BABICH FAMILY HEADWATERS ORGANIC ALBARINO HAWKE'S BAY 19
This is the 4th harvest of Albariño from the certified organic Headwaters Vineyard.
It spent time in cold soak prior to pressing and the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense flavours and aromatic purity of the variety. Fermentation was halted prior to dryness to balance the refreshing acidity.
Sweetly perfumed and floral (apple blossom) aromas with lime and white stone-fruits. Big juicy entry with sweet citrus fruits and some tart apple notes. Nicely textured and lush mid-palate moving to spicy and lingering, mineral finish.
