ESK VALLEY ARTISANAL ALBARINO HAWKE'S BAY 21
A stunning new alternative white that ticks all the boxes - Albarino is the great white grape of north west Spain and is also the most promising newcomer to New Zealand vineyards. This wine has a strong affinity with seafood, fresh salads thanks to its naturally high acidity, which adds refreshing cut through without fruit heavy flavours, making a great alternative dry white.
Flavours of fresh green herbs and salinity make this wine refreshing and diverse in style.
The Albarino grape also works well in this country's climate thanks to its relatively thick skins, which suit our maritime climate's weather challenges, enabling it to ripen without compromise in harvest dates.
