Forrest Albarino Marlborough 2022
Albari?o is a classic Galician white grape variety from north western Spain, which thrives in New Zealand and tastes of fabulous aromatic lemon zest with green olive and freshly picked apple aromas. Forrest Estate winemaker Beth Forrest first encountered it in Spain and was smitten immediately. This led to Albarino being brought into New Zealand by Riversun Nurseries in Gisborne and, eventually, to growing in Marlborough where Beth and her famous winemaking father, John, Forrest, both love it and produce this fabulous dry white wine.
This wine shows all the classical Albari?o elements with a New Zealand touch of vibrant acidity, white peach, pear, apricots and quince, with an orange zest undertone.
